The Research Center for Infectious Diseases (ZINF) at the University of Würzburg seeks a new group leader for its young investigator program. We are looking to recruit a researcher with outstanding postdoctoral experience and international recognition in the general fields of microbiology, cell biology, mycology, parasitology, immunology, RNA biology, single cell analysis, or host-pathogen interactions. Candidates using emerging technologies to study new aspects of pathogenesis are preferred, but all outstanding scientists are encouraged to apply.
The appointment will be for a period of 5+2 years. Salary (E14/15) will be commensurate with training and experience. The position includes laboratory operating expenses and salaries for additional personnel (postdoc, graduate student, and technician), and laboratory space in a new 9,000 m2 state-of-the-art research building with bio-containment, molecular imaging, high-throughput genomics, and animal facilities. The building is specifically designed to foster collaborative research, and is home to nine additional young investigator groups as well as laboratories run by faculty members. See www.imib-wuerzburg.de for more information. Informal inquiries can be made to Prof. Jörg Vogel (email@example.com).
Interested individuals should send a one-page description of their research interests and future directions, CV and publication list, and the names of three academic references by January 31st, 2015. We may request that short-listed candidates provide a more detailed research proposal at a later date. Preference will be given to people with disabilities in the case of otherwise equal aptitude. The University aims to increase the proportion of female employees, therefore applications from qualified women are particularly welcome. Applications should be sent as a single pdf.file via email to Dr. Stan Gorski (firstname.lastname@example.org), and addressed to the Spokesperson of ZINF, Prof. Jörg Vogel.
