Rector of FAU says goodbye to Prof. Dr. med. Edgar Voltmer

01. Feb. 2019

On 31st January 2019 Prof. Dr med. Edgar Voltmer is leaving Friedensau Adventist University. He is following a calling from the University Lübeck for a W3 professorship for health promotion in university and job and he will step up to this on 1st February. Prof. Voltmer worked as a teacher in Friedensau since 2002, after he habilitated in Freiburg Institution for Musician Medicine at the medical faculty at the Albert-Ludwig-University Freiburg. He worked in social science faculty at Friedensau Adventist University. His research focus is on job-related psychosocial burden and approaches to job-specific prevention and health promotion. This will be his research focus in his new habitat. “I enjoyed working with students, colleagues and employees at Friedensau Adventist University”, said Prof. Voltmer, “but after 17 years I figured the time would be ripe to dare a new beginning. I’m connected with Lübeck University in long-standing research cooperation, which reaches its peak in this professorship.”

About the emulation for Prof. Voltmer at Friedensau Adventist University is not yet decided.
