He then moved back to Giessen to obtain his Habilitation in 1979, whereupon he became a lecturer, soon obtaining Professorship in 1980 as Professor of Organic Chemistry at Bonn. In 1985 he moved to Aachen, where he has remained as Full Professor of Organic Chemistry and Director. He is editor-in-chief of Synthesis and is on the advisory boards of many other journals including Letters in Organic Chemistry and SynLett.
During his career he has won many awards. These include:

  • 1993 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft
  • 1995 Yamada Award, Japan
  • 2000 Max-Planck-Forschungspreis for Chemistry
