Population Health Sciences at the DZNE aims to study determinants of normal and pathological mental as well as
physical function over the adult life course, with a special emphasis on neurodegenerative diseases and ageing.
To this end, the team led by Prof. Monique M.B. Breteler, Director of Population Health Sciences of the DZNE,
has recently launched the Rhineland Study. This prospective population based cohort study will include up to
30,000 people aged 30 years and over and is designed to run for decades. Study facilities currently encompass
2 examination centres equipped with state-of-the art apparatus including 3T MRI scanners, advanced bio-banking
facilities and large data storage and computational resources. Our rapidly growing team consists of scientists,
study technicians, management, administrative and support staff, and currently includes more than 50 people.
Furthermore, we have a quickly developing network of national and international research collaborations.
Responsibilities are focussed on specific scientific support for the Director of Population Health Sciences in
the further development and leading of the Rhineland Study. This includes – but is not limited to –
conceptual work (analyses/evaluations), preparation, analysis and follow-up of study-related documents (e.g. ethics,
data protection) and preparation of scientific correspondence. The nature of this position also requires a close
working relationship with our scientists, academic as well as non-academic collaborators and other internal and
external stakeholders. The Scientific Officer is part of the Rhineland Study’s Management Team.

experience. The candidate must be fluent in both German and English, and have excellent communication and writing
skills. Project management skills and experience are another prerequisite. While previous working experience in
scientific management is not mandatory, the candidate should have a strong interest in developing into such a
role. We are looking for a highly talented, motivated, enthusiastic and ambitious person to join our team.
Creative, flexible and team-oriented candidates, who dare to take initiative and enjoy working in a fast-growing,
dynamic research environment in an internationally oriented biomedical institution, are strongly encouraged to apply.
