Chair (W3) of Cellular Circuits and Systems

TU Dresden

Dresden, Germany

The Biotechnology Centre (BIOTEC) at TU Dresden is an institute at the Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB) with the aim to develop innovative technologies, approaches and teaching in the life sciences utilizing strengths in molecular, cellular and developmental biology, biophysics and computational biology. BIOTEC seeks to fill the

Chair (W3) of Cellular Circuits and Systems

as soon as possible.
The holder of the position will explore the concepts of Cellular Circuits and Systems in research and teaching. His/her research area will complement the interdisciplinary research at BIOTEC by bridging molecular cell and developmental biology with systems biology and biotechnology. The successful applicant will actively engage in the teaching program hosted by the CMCB, including the international Masters’ programs in “Molecular Bioengineering”, “Nanobiophysics”, “Regenerative Biology and Medicine” and “Computational Modeling and Simulation”. Teaching in the Bachelor program „Molecular Biology and Biotechnology“ of the Faculty of Biology as well as at the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB) is also available. Interdisciplinary cooperation with university research groups including the Center for Regenerative Therapies (CRTD), the Center for Molecular Bioengineering (B CUBE), the School of Science, and non-university research groups at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (CBG) and the local biotechnology industry are desirable.

The successful applicant should have an outstanding international scientific record as a researcher in the fields of cellular and developmental biology, systems biology or molecular bioengineering. Innovative research on cellular circuits as well as cell and developmental processes with a molecular cell biology orientation and the potential to reveal fundamental mechanisms with a quantitative approach will be preferred. The candidate is expected to utilize advanced analytical or biophysical approaches, for example by combining developmental genetics with high resolution microscopy and ultra-sensitive methods. An excellent publication record, extensive teaching experience, and proven ability to attract third party funding are required. Applicants must fulfil the employment qualification requirements of § 58 of the Act on the Autonomy of Institutions of Higher Education in the Free State of Saxony (SächsHSFG).
