The Faculty of Biological Sciences at Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, invites applications for a

Professorship (W2) in Nutritional Toxicology

at the Institute of Nutritional Sciences.

The future professor will be representing the field of `Nutritional Toxicology’ both in research and by teaching courses in the Faculty’s Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in nutritional sciences.
The Institute of Nutritional Sciences focuses on both molecular and applied research, thus forming a link between several scientific disciplines in Jena, including biochemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, molecular medicine and social sciences. The successful candidate will be expected to actively seek collaboration with other professors at the Institute of Nutritional Sciences and with related departments, primarily at the Faculty of Biological Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine. It is also expected of the future professor that efforts will be made to collaborate within existing local research clusters, such as the competence cluster nutriCARD or the research training group ProMoAge, as well as with departments at non-university research institutes in Jena, such as the Leibniz Institute on Aging or the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology.

Candidates should be experts in the field of modern bioanalytics, expanding the spectrum of analytic methods currently available at the Institute of Nutritional Sciences. Research interests of the future professor are expected to be in basic research in toxicology, with emphasis on nutrition-related diseases. Moreover, the use of model organisms for research in nutritional toxicology will be appreciated.

Conditions of employment include a Habilitation degree or an equivalent scientific qualification, previous successful grant applications as well as ample teaching experience. If the successful candidate meets the legal requirements, he or she will be appointed permanently as a civil servant.

Friedrich Schiller University Jena is committed to increasing the number of women in research and teaching. Therefore, the University actively encourages qualified female scientists to apply. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference to other candidates with equal qualifications.
