W2 Professorship for "Molecular Immune Regulation"

W2 Professorship for "Molecular Immune Regulation"

Kiel University, Faculty of Medicine

Kiel, Germany

Kiel University has successfully applied for funding through the federal/state programme in support of early career researchers, and seeks to appoint more qualified women to professorships.

A position is available immediately at the Institute of Immunology and the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology at the
Faculty of Medicine
at Kiel University,
for a temporary

W2 Professorship (for a 6-year period) for "Molecular Immune Regulation" with a tenure track

The future occupant of this position is expected to represent the subject of "Molecular Immune Regulation" in research and teaching.

The successful candidate is expected to actively participate in the "Digital Medicine" priority research area at the Faculty of Medicine and to contribute to the local research networks, particularly in relation to the Cluster of Excellence "Inflammation at Interfaces", as well the CRC 877 and the RTG 1743.
The W2 professorship for "Molecular Immune Regulation" will focus on the molecular mechanisms, e.g. (epi)genetic, transcriptional, metabolic or signal transduction, which contribute to the modulation and stabilisation of inflammatory properties of immune cells in chronic inflammation. The goal is to identify molecular switches and their possible modulation pathways which have a high level of translational relevance, e.g. for therapeutic or diagnostic use. In particular, the professorship should also establish systems for the functional analysis of the molecular factors in the relevant cell types e.g. CRISPR/Cas-based manipulation of primary human immune cells or appropriate clinically-relevant animal models.
Requirements for appointment are a university degree in natural sciences, or in veterinary or human medicine. The scientific qualification should be complemented by a clearly-structured, independent research profile with corresponding publications in internationally-recognised journals (first/last authorship), and successful acquisition of third-party funds, particularly from the DFG, EU or BMBF.
Please also refer to the appointment requirements in Section 61 of the Schleswig-Holstein Higher Education Act. It is planned to make the position permanent (Tenure Track procedure), subject to positive evaluation. Further information is available at www.berufungen.uni-kiel.de/de (German only).
