The successful applicant will represent the area of Biochemistry / Molecular Cell Biology and should pursue a fundamental biological question that contributes to or complements current research areas at the BZH and can be integrated into existing or future research consortia (https://www.bzh.uni-heidelberg.de/). Research at the BZH includes the analysis / characterization of molecular machines, in particular their macromolecular biogenesis, structure and function. Major topics are dynamic intracellular transport processes, protein homeostasis, the assembly of RNA-protein complexes such as the ribosome, specific roles of lipids and lipid-protein interactions in biological membranes, and molecular switches. Candidates with expertise in cryo-electron microscopy are particularly encouraged to send an application as further development of cryo-EM based research is planned at the BZH. The candidate should be qualified and prepared to engage in teaching biochemistry / cell biology to students of the Medical Faculty. Teaching language is German.
Prerequisites for the application are a Ph.D., M.D. or corresponding degree, a “Habilitation” or equivalent scientific qualification, more than one year experience in leading a research group, and a track record in securing third-party funding. Please refer to further requirements according to § 47 and § 48(2) State Laws for Higher Education (LHG) of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
The University of Heidelberg seeks to increase the number of female scientists in faculty positions and thus strongly encourages applications by qualified women. By equal qualifications persons with disabilities will be given preferential consideration.
