Folks;  I'm following up on Prof. Wolfgang Hochbruck's call for applicants
as a Twain-Scholar to work in the ALU Freiburg as a Fulbright Professor
next year (2017-18).

Our time in Freiburg was delightful.  It's a great university with
excellent students, and it is located in southern Germany near the Black
Forest and just a few miles from the borders with France and Switzerland,
so it is a terrific base for day trips and more extensive forays beyond.
The town is terrific, nearby hiking is wonderful;  and I can only give the
highest recommendation for the area, the university, and especially the
warm and generous Hochbruck family as hosts.  I know my wife Hiroko and I
would be thrilled to return to Freiburg for another stint; (A Tramp Abroad
in hand of course)!

If I can be of any further help or advice in this process (I am currently a
referee for Fulbrights, by the way), or if anyone has questions about
living and working in Freiburg, please just ask.  --Hal B.
