Argelander Assistant Professorship (W1) for Biohybrid Research (tenure track to W2)
Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn
The support of scientists at all career stages is one of the highest priorities of
the Excellence University of Bonn. In this context, the Argelander Tenure Track
Professorship Program is specifically dedicated to supporting excellent junior
researchers and enabling them to develop their own independent research
at the interface between the disciplines.
Applications are invited for an open position of an
Argelander Assistant Professor (W1)
for Biohybrid Research (tenure track to W2)
to be filled as soon as possible within the Transdisciplinary Research Area
"Building Blocks of Matter and Fundamental Interactions" of the University of
Bonn. The initial appointment will be at W1 level (Assistant Professor) with
tenure track to a W2 position (Associate Professor) at the Chemistry Department of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. Candidates should
have a strong research profile in engineering and instrumental analytics of biohybrid structures. Potential applications of such biohybrids can be in the areas
of sensing, catalysis or energy conversion.
Teaching is an integral part of professorships. The Assistant Professor's
teaching responsibilities are in the area of Chemistry / Physical Chemistry
and follow the provisions of the Higher Education Act of the Federal State of
North-Rhine Westphalia. Contributions to future integrated research projects
are expected. Assistant professors are appointed for an initial period of three
years with an extension for another three years in case of a positive interim
evaluation. Subsequently, the appointment can be made permanent at W2 level following a positive final evaluation by the University's governing bodies.
This professorate is funded by the Tenure Track Program of the German Federal and State Governments. Awarding tenure is not subject to a vacancy
