We have an immediate opening for a
Full Professor for Physiological Chemistry / Neurobiologysuccessor to Univ.-Prof. Dr. Benedikt Berninger in accordance with salary grade W2 of the State Renumeration Act (Landesbesoldungsgesetz), for 6 years with tenure track
The vacant position entails the research of current translational issues in neurobiology and/or neuroimmunology – such as cell differentiation, in vitro systems (i.e. organoids), behavior or neurological diseases – through (epi) genetic, optogenetic, molecular or cellular methods. In addition to a relevant doctorate, the candidate‘s excellence in research should be proven through nationally and internationally visible publications. Due to the fact that the desired research includes close collaboration with different research structures of the University Medical Center (such as the Focus Program Translational Neurosciences, the Research Center for Immunotherapy and the German Resilience Center), with regional networks (such as the Rhine- Main Neuroscience Network), as well as with locally represented collaborative research centers (CRC 1080, CRC 1193, CRC/TR 128), a high level of network competence and cooperation, as well as the ability to conduct interdisciplinary research is required. Because the holder of this position will actively pursue the establishment of new research infrastructures and/or group funding instruments, competence in generating third-party funds proven by high-quality acquisitions is required.
The professorship requires comprehensive participation in the preclinical teaching of medical students in the fields of biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology. Additionally, participation in the further development of preclinical teaching concepts is expected. In this respect, demonstrable teaching competence as well as a habilitation or comparable experience in accordance with § 49 para. 1 no. 4 a) of the Higher Education Act are required. Ensuring further academic training is one of the duties of the future holder of this position.
All remaining conditions for employment are defined in § 49 of the German Higher Education Act of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate.
The position constitutes a private law employment relationship to the University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. The State of Rhineland-Palatinate, the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the University Medical Center pursue a concept of intensive support for students and expect instructors to maintain a high presence. The University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz strives to increase the share of women in scientific managerial positions and therefore invites female scientists, in particular, to apply for the position. Disabled applicants with appropriate qualifications will be favored.
Please send your application with the usual documents (CV, degree and other certificates) in German or English, including proof of previous teaching experience, acquisition of external funding and publications to the
