University Hospital and the University of Würzburg

Würzburg, Germany

The Faculty of Medicine is currently establishing a new center for cancer research, which is funded by a grant from the German Cancer Aid (Deutsche Krebshilfe). The center (“Mildred-Scheel Nachwuchszentrum” (MSNZ)) is dedicated to excellent tumor research and will house independent research groups led by both medical and life sciences researchers. It will interact closely with the Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) Mainfranken, a joint institution of the University Hospital and the University of Würzburg focusing on cancer medicine and tumor research. For the MSNZ, we look for

Young Investigator Groups (f/m)


  • Early scientific independence for excellent postdoctoral researchers
  • Funding to lead a research group for five + three years
  • Professional skills training
  • Close collaborations with both the university and the university hospital


  • Between 2 and 6 years of research experience after your doctorate (PhD, MD)
  • An exceptional scientific record
  • An innovative research project in molecular or translational oncology
  • Strong motivation to set up and lead your own research group

We are broadly interested in current topics of molecular oncology, including, for example, the role of deregulated transcription and protein turnover in tumorigenesis, interactions of tumor cells with the host immune system as well as new chemical-biological approaches to control tumor growth.
