to be filled at the earliest possible date. This professorship is funded by the Tenure Track Program of the German Federal Government and the Federal States and is initially limited to six years.

The successful applicant is expected to strengthen the research priorities of the Faculty of Pharmacy by establishing an independent research group and to actively participate in research alliances and existing collaborative research initiatives of the Faculty of Pharmacy as well as in the overall research priorities of the Philipps-Universität Marburg and the “Forschungscampus Mittelhessen”.

The duration of the employment in research and science after obtaining the doctoral degree should not exceed four years (in medicine seven years). In addition, applicants should not have received their doctorate at the University of Marburg. In case the doctoral degree was obtained at the University of Marburg, the applicant should have worked in research and science outside of the University of Marburg for at least two years thereafter (in accordance with § 64 Abs. 3 Hessisches Hochschulgesetz HHG, the State of Hessen Higher Education Act).

We are looking for a highly qualified, internationally visible scientist with initial outstanding scientific achievements and an independent scientific profile in the field of pharmaceutical bioanalytics and natural products research, such as biomolcecular interaction analysis, analytics of natural products or the development of assay for drug testing and diagnostics that demonstrates the potential for a further successful career in science at the highest international level.

The professorship is responsible for teaching in the field of pharmaceutical chemistry or pharmaceutical biology (according to the contents required by the AAppO) taught in German. Furthermore, teaching in interdisciplinary courses is expected to be conducted in German as well as in English.

A completed university degree in natural- or life-sciences and an outstanding doctorate as well as a special pedagogical aptitude, are required. A registration as state licensed pharmacist (Approbation) is an advantage. Experience in the successful acquisition of third-party funds will be considered as an asset.

The employment requirements of §§ 61, 62 and especially 64 HHG apply. The Tenure Track professorship is initially a grade W1 fixed term (6 years) position. If the requirements under general German civil service law are met, the applicant shall be granted a temporary civil service status for a period of six years. In the event of a positive evaluation of the professional, didactic and personal aptitude, the applicant will be granted a civil service status for life, combined with the assignment of a W2 permanent professorship.
