The Biocenter at the University of Würzburg seeks a leader for a junior research group on "Host-pathogen interactions". We are looking to recruit a researcher with outstanding postdoctoral experience and international recognition in molecular infection biology, cellular microbiology, or cell-autonomous defence. Potential research topics of the new junior group could address, e.g., heterogeneity of infections, colonization and persistence within host/cellular niches, exploitation of cellular metabolism/pathways by bacterial pathogens. Candidates using emerging technologies (for example, single cell analysis) to study new aspects of pathogenesis are preferred, but all outstanding scientists are encouraged to apply.

The appointment can be for up to 6 years. Salary (compensation will be according to TV-L) will be commensurate with training and experience. The position includes laboratory operating expenses and salaries for additional personnel, and laboratory space with bio-containment, molecular imaging, highthroughput genomics, and animal facilities.

Interested individuals should send a one-page description of their research interests and future directions, CV and publication list, and the names of three academic references by March 1st, 2018. We may ask short-listed candidates to provide a more detailed research proposal at a later date. Preference will be given to people with disabilities in the case of otherwise equal aptitude. The University aims to increase the proportion of female employees, therefore applications from qualified women are particularly welcome.
