The Technical University of Munich (TUM)
invites applications for two positions of
in the field of Organoid-Technologies
W2 Tenure Track Assistant Professor (with tenure track to W3) or W3 Associate/Full Professor; to begin as soon as possible. One of the professorships is endowed by the Heinz Nixdorf foundation.
The professorship will be assigned to the Center for Organoid and Tissue Engineering (COS). The COS is a comprehensive research institute with a new research building in Garching. The assignment to a TUM School therefore depends on the research focus of the candidate to be appointed. There are close partnerships and collaborations with the Munich Institute of Biomedical Engineering (MIBE), the Center for Protein Assembly (CPA), the TranslaTUM of the Klinikum rechts der Isar as well as other TUM Schools and research institutions in Munich.
The responsibilities include research and teaching as well as the promotion of early-career scientists. We seek to appoint an expert in the research area of stem cell- and organoid-technologies with a focus on e.g., collection, integration, and analysis of complex multimodal data sets and/or analysis of intra- and extracellular communication within complex organ model systems. It would be desirable to establish an organ model that complements existing organoid expertise. Teaching responsibilities include courses in the university’s bachelor and master programs. One of the two professorships is responsible for managing a Heinz Nixdorf Core Facility for organoid system analytics.
We are looking for candidates who have demonstrated excellent achievements in research and teaching in an internationally recognized scientific environment, relative to the relevant career level (please see www.tum.de/en/faculty-recruiting-faq/
for further information).
A university degree in biology, bioinformatics, life sciences or in a comparable field of study and an outstanding doctoral degree or equivalent scientific qualification, as well as pedagogical aptitude, are prerequisites. Substantial research experience abroad and full commitment to do interdisciplinary research is expected. Demonstrated leadership skills and a willingness to lead a Core Facility are expected for one of the two professorships.
