The Technical University of Munich (TUM) seeks to strengthen its expertise in the fields of molecular and ecological
plant sciences. The strategic goal is an integration of advanced research to address current challenges and opportunities in agriculture,
horticulture, forestry and environmental sciences. As part of this initiative two positions are to be filled. For both positions the call
is open rank, from the level of W2 Tenure Track Assistant Professor (with tenure track to W3) to the level of W3 Associate/Full Professor,
depending on qualification.

Research of this professorship is expected on plant structures and systemic functions that interact with environmental factors and determine resource
dynamics in plant populations and communities. The focus should be on ecophysiological processes controlling growth and reproduction of plants.
Teaching is expected in basic and advanced functional plant ecology for students of biology, forestry, agricultural sciences and landscape planning.
The professorships belong to the Research Departments Plant Sciences and/or Ecology and Ecosystem Management within the TUM School of Life Sciences
Weihenstephan. Infrastructure available include the Core Facilities of the School of Life Sciences for high throughput sequencing, proteomics, bioimaging,
advanced climate chambers (TUMmesa), the Greenhouse Laboratory Center Dürnast and experimental farm and forest sites (e.g. KROOF). In case of appointments
as W2 Tenure Track Assis-tant Professors, the professorships are funded by the Federal Tenure Track Programme.
The responsibilities include research and teaching as well as the promotion of early-career scientists. The teaching load includes courses in the
university’s bachelor and master programs.
We are looking for candidates who have demonstrated excellent achievements in research and teaching in an internationally recognized scientific environment,
regarding the relevant career level. A university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree or equivalent scientific qualification as well as pedagogical aptitude,
