The Faculty of Biology at the University of Münster, Institute of
Molecular Cell Biology and the Interdisciplinary Research Center for
Cooperative Functional Systems (FOKUS) invite applications for an
for Quantitative Cell Biology
(W2 salary scale)
Candidates should experimentally address mechanisms of cellular
processes using innovative biophysical and/or chemical techniques.
Areas of research can include, but are not limited to, the quantitative
imaging of cellular processes at scales ranging from single molecules
to assemblies of cells.
Research should complement work at the Institute of Molecular Cell
Biology. The successful candidate is expected to cooperate with existing
collaborative research centers and networks, graduate schools and
research facilities, in particular the Center for Soft Nanoscience (SoN).
Candidates should have a strong interest and background in cell
biology, biophysics, or biophysical chemistry and take an active
interest in fostering the development of new, interdisciplinary structures.
An active and appropriate participation in the teaching duties of the
Faculty of Biology at both the BSc and MSc levels and in academic selfgoverning
of the university is expected.
The position is particularly suited for highly qualified junior scientists
who have completed doctoral studies and have an excellent track record
in research and teaching. Prerequisites for the application are a
doctoral degree and academic achievements made as a Junior Professor
(assistant Professor), in a Habilitation (postdoctoral qualification), as a
member of the academic staff of a university or non-university research
institute, or in a research position in business, industry, administration
or other relevant fields in Germany or abroad.
The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is
committed to increasing the proportion of women in academics.
Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female
candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements
will be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal
possibilities. We also welcome applications from candidates with
severe disabilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications
will be preferentially considered.
An application consisting of a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a
summary of research interests, a future research plan and a statement
of teaching experience should be sent via e-mail in a single PDF file,
until November 1st, 2016
