Kiel University (CAU) and the University of Lübeck (UzL)

are striving to increase the proportion of qualified female scientists in research and teaching.

At Kiel University (CAU)

and the University of Lübeck (UzL), a total of

four W1 professorships (six years with tenure track W2)

are to be awarded as soon as possible, to promote Schleswig-Holstein as a region of excellence in applied life sciences (medical and natural science research).

With the call for applications for four "Schleswig-Holstein Excellence Chairs", Kiel University (CAU) and the University of Lübeck (UzL) are continuing their joint Precision Health Schleswig-Holstein (PHSH) funding programme for excellence professorships, which has been in place since 2016. On the one hand, this programme is intended to promote Schleswig-Holstein as a region of excellence in applied life sciences, especially in medical research, and on the other hand, to strengthen inflammation research in the German Research Foundation (DFG) Cluster of Excellence "Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation (PMI)". Teams will be formed between the SH Excellence Chairs and the W1 professorships advertised here. The W1 professorships will be assigned to the respective university that advertised the position.

The W1 professorships affiliated to the four SH Excellence Chairs will be accepted as associate members in the joint institution formed by the CAU, UzL and the UKSH - the PHSH. As a cross-campus organisational structure, the PHSH represents the sustainable structure for continuation of the Cluster of Excellence PMI through the German Excellence Strategy (ExStra). The PHSH is also a model for governance of research funds at the University Medical Center.

The innovative research concepts of the W1 professorships advertised here are intended to complement the research profiles of the respective SH Excellence Chairs. By recruiting junior professors, the cluster ensures the sustainability of its excellence in inflammation research.

You will find excellent conditions for research in Schleswig-Holstein: the environment provides you with key technologies for state-of-the-art biomedical research and you will cooperate with leading researchers in the field of inflammation research. The participating institutions also support family-friendly structures.

The following professorship is to be awarded:

W1 professorship for „Tissue Aspects of Immunity and Inflammation“

Department of Dermatology, University of Luebeck

Contact: Prof. Dr. Dr. Markus Hoffmann

The professorship is assigned to the SH Excellence Chair of Prof. Markus Hoffmann and is located at the Department of Dermatology, University of Lübeck. Close cooperation with the research groups of the Cluster of Excellence "Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation" (PMI) at the University of Lübeck as well as the CAU Kiel is sought. The professorship will also be affiliated with the SFB1526 "Pathomechanisms of Antibody-Mediated Autoimmune Diseases".

The new professor will focus on tissue-specific aspects of chronic inflammatory diseases of autoimmune and infectious origin. The adaptation of tissues to inflammatory triggers will be broken down multidimensionally, pathomechanisms deciphered and used for therapeutic interventions.

Applicants need a university degree (doctorate) in the fields of inflammation biology /immunology. Expertise in state-of-the-arts methods of multidimensional analysis at the cellular level (for example, spatial transcriptomics, chromatin accessibility analysis, organoid systems, metabolic analysis in single cells, modern microscopy, etc.) and in animal disease models is an advantage. A collaborative and interdisciplinary mindset and technical affinity are essential to the work area.

Please also refer to the appointment requirements in Section 64 of the Schleswig-Holstein Higher Education Act (HSG). After successful evaluation of the first phase of the junior professorship, the aim is to extend the temporary civil servant status for another period of three years (second phase).

After a successful evaluation, and in the presence of further requirements in accordance with Section 62a of the Schleswig-Holstein Higher Education Act, the aim is to upgrade the professorship to a permanent W2 professorship. In addition to the evaluation of the junior professorship, a separate evaluation procedure is carried out, usually during the second phase of the junior professorship, in accordance with the current statutes.

Kiel University and the University of Lübeck are striving to increase the proportion of female scientists in research and teaching and therefore expressly encourage qualified women to apply. Women with equal aptitude, qualifications and professional performance will be given priority.

The universities are committed to the employment of persons with disabilities. Applications from severely disabled persons and those with equivalent status will be treated preferentially where they are suitable for the position.

We expressly welcome applications from people with a migrant background. Application photographs are not required and we expressly request that you refrain from submitting any.

The Schleswig-Holstein Higher Education Act obliges the Faculty of Medicine at Kiel University and Lübeck Medical School at the University of Lübeck to work closely together with the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) to form and coordinate priority research areas. The state expects clinics, institutes and newly appointed scientists to work together in this sense.

Applications with the customary documents (curriculum vitae, list of publications, list of lectures, copies of academic certificates, 3 top publications) are requested in PDF format, with details of the private and work address along with telephone number and e-mail, addressed to:  

President of the University of Lübeck

Prof. Gabriele Gillessen-Kaesbach

For the attention of Ms S. Tieze
