The University of Potsdam, Faculty of Science, Institute of Nutritional Science, and the Leibniz-Institute
of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ) invite applications in a joint appointment (Jülicher
Modell) for the following professorship:
W2-Professorship for food chemistry and
analytics of plant secondary metabolites
The professorship is expected to establish a research group on analytical chemistry of plant secondary
metabolites in horticultural crops, strengthening the cooperation between UP, IGZ and other partners
in the Berlin/Brandenburg area.
We are looking for an outstanding scientist who is working in the research interface between food
chemistry, plant biology, and nutritional science and focuses on the development and implementation
of analytical methods for the elucidation of biosynthesis pathways of plant secondary metabolites including
signal transduction. Candidates are sought with demonstrated competencies to integrate modern analytical
approaches for the analysis, identification, and functional characterization of volatile and nonvolatile
plant secondary metabolites.
The research should be responsive to the rapidly developing analytical technologies. Potential methodologies
include, but are not limited to, gas and liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry.
Requirements are a PhD, a habilitation or equivalent scholarly achievements, international professional
experience, and suitable teaching skills and experience. Applicants also need to have national and
international visibility in the research areas relevant for the professorship, experience in the successful
acquisition and implementation of externally funded projects.
The successful applicant will be expected to develop a nationally and internationally recognized research
program in analytical science of plant secondary metabolites. We expect a significant contribution in the
advanced development of an analytical platform to characterise and improve horticultural crop species
also in context of global food security.
The professorship has a teaching requirement of 2 hours per week in English and German language at the
Bachelor and Master courses of the Institute of Nutritional Science of the UP.
The employment is planned according to the "Jülicher Modell". The candidate will be appointed as a civil
servant with the obligation to teach at least two hours per week at the University of Potsdam.
Prerequisites for the application are a doctoral degree and a record of research equivalent to the
German "Habilitation". Scientific qualifications achieved in the private sector, outside Germany, or as
junior professor will also be considered (§ 41 Brandenburgisches Hochschulgesetz - BbgHG).
Appointment will be made as a civil servant or a public employee according to the State law (§ 40
The University of Potsdam and the Leibniz-Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ) strive
to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and specifically encourages female applicants
to apply for this position. Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal
suitability. People with an immigration background are specifically encouraged to apply.
Applications (with a presentation of your research interests, curriculum vitae, copies of academic
certificates and documents, a list of publications, a list of conducted courses, a list of
externally funded projects) should be sent to the University of Potsdamausschreibungen@uni-potsdam.dewithin four weeks of the publication of this notice.
