The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology invites applications
from outstanding scientists for the position of Director. A Max Planck
Director pursues a bold long-term research agenda in his or her own
Department, and leads the Institute jointly with fellow Directors. Applicants
should have achieved internationally-recognized distinction
in some area of chemical ecology: the study of ecological interactions
mediated by chemical signals among all forms of life. Research
should have a strong chemical focus and complement the wide-ranging
interests of the Institute, which include interactions among bacteria,
fungi, plants, and animals; in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems;
encompassing symbioses, competition, herbivory, predation, and pathogenesis;
using chemical, biochemical, genetic, physiological, behavioral,
and ecological approaches. Chief criteria for a directorship
are scientific and scholarly excellence and an innovative and unique
research program, rather than seniority or publication rankings. We
are looking for the strongest and most creative scientists worldwide,
and offer an excellent international research environment, outstanding
infrastructure, and long-term scientific funding. Applications in
PDF format due by 15 February 2018 must consist of a letter of intent,
a curriculum vitae, a publication list, reprints of three to five selected
publications, a concept statement outlining the structure and
long-term, visionary research agenda of the proposed Department,
and names of three referees. Preliminary inquiries and applications
should be sent to the address below, and will be held in strictest confidence.
Short-listed applicants will participate in a search symposium
in Jena in the Spring of 2018.
The Max-Planck-Society strives for gender equity and welcomes applications
from all backgrounds. We actively encourage applications
from persons with disabilities.
