The Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is one of
Germany‘s leading research universities.
The University draws its strengths from both
the diversity and the proximity of scientific and
engineering disciplines on a single, coherent
campus. This highly dynamic setting enables
students and researchers to work across traditional
boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.
The RUB is a vital institution in the Ruhr area,
which has been selected as European Capital of
Culture for the year 2010.
IN CELL PHYSIOLOGY
The Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology
at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum
invites applications for the position of
a Professor (W3) in Cell Physiology. The start date for the
position is October 1, 2017
or as soon as possible thereafter.
We expect applicants to investigate cellular processes in the
mammalian central nervous system using innovative state-of-the-art cell and molecular biology methods, advanced imaging
techniques or genomic strategies. Research topics should
interface with one or more of the following core research areas
of the faculty "Cell biology of signal detection and response" or
"Protein research and bioengineering". The successful candidate
is expected to participate in grant initiatives (e.g. SFBs, Research
Training Groups) and integrate into at least one of the inter-faculty
research programs "Research Department Neuroscience (RDN)",
"Protein Research Department (PRD)", "Protein research Unit
Ruhr within Europe (PURE)" or "Protein Diagnostics (ProDi)".
The future holder of the post will represent the subject in
research and teaching. Teaching duties are at all levels of the
Bachelor (B.Sc.) and Master (M.Sc.) of Science programs of the
faculty (practical exercises in animal physiology, neuroscience
within the Master of Science program). Furthermore, the position
offers the possibility to teach in various PhD programs (International
Graduate School of Biosciences (IGB), International
Graduate School of Neuroscience (IGSN), RUB Research School).
Positive evaluation as a junior professor or equivalent academic
qualifications (e.g. habilitation) and evidence for academic
excellence and achievements are required, as well as the
willingness to participate in the self-governing bodies of the
RUB and to generally get involved in university processes
according to RUB‘s mission statement. Moreover, we expect:
- high commitment to teaching including the ability to teach
- participation in inter-disciplinary work
- evidence of sustained scientific productivity, including
external funding (grant or industry)
The Ruhr-University Bochum is an equal opportunities employer.
Applications (in English or German) including CV, list of publications,
description of research interests and future plans, lists
of funded grant proposals and teaching activities, as well as the
five most relevant publications should be sent to the Dean of the
Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology of the Ruhr-Universität
Bochum, Prof. Dr. M. Rögner, 44780 Bochum, Germany, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
