in the Department of Biology.
The holder of this position should show internationally acclaimed research activities in the field of molecular microbiology using prokaryotes and have experience in securing external funds. Collaborations within the present main research focus of the department, in particular the Collaborative Research Center SFB 796 “Reprogramming of Host Cells by Microbial Effectors” are expected.
Qualifications include university undergraduate and doctoral degrees, good teaching skills, and a habilitation or equivalent other qualification, which may have been gained outside the University or within a “Juniorprofessur”.
The successful candidate will be expected to take over administrative duties and also to attract external funding.
At the time of appointment the candidate must not be older than 52 years of age. The Ministry for Science, Research and Art may allow an exception in special cases, which has to be approved by the Ministry of Finance. This appointment will be made by the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg.
The University of Erlangen-Nürnberg is committed to a pro-family policy and an equal opportunity employer. We strongly encourage women to apply in an effort to increase a female representation in research and teaching.
The University of Erlangen-Nürnberg persues a policy of intensive study support of its students and expects therefore that its teaching staff maintain a substantial student contact time by being present at the university.
All other qualifications being equal handicapped persons will be given priority.
The position is to be filled as soon as possible.
