Kiel University wants to attract more qualified women to professorships.
The Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology of the Kiel University Medical Faculty invites applications for the following position to be filled as soon as possible:
Assistant Professorship (W 1) for Functional Genomics
and Single Cell Analysis
This position is part of the Schleswig-Holstein Excellence chair program as a unique strategic investment to strengthen the Excellence Region Schleswig-Holstein in the applied life sciences, especially in medical inflammation research. The SH Excellence Chairs have a leading role in the newly funded Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation” and will form research tandems in innovative research fields with newly recruited Junior Professorships, one of which is advertised here.This position will be located at the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology (Contact: Prof. Dr. Philip Rosenstiel).
The holder of the position is expected to work on differentiation processes of immunologically active cells in the gastrointestinal tract (e.g. myeloid cells or intestinal epithelial cells) at single cell resolution. Innovative techniques (e.g. single cell RNA sequencing, iPSC, epigenetic reprogramming) will be used. It is expected that the work will contribute to a better understanding of chronic inflammatory diseases.
Successful candidates have proven expertise in bioinformatics (transcriptome / epigenome analysis) and / or wet lab experience in the field of system-oriented cell biology (e.g. iPSC, CRISPR screens). Candidates with an excellent background in related fields who wish to change their research focus are encouraged to apply.
Of particular importance is the interdisciplinary collaboration with translational research groups at the Institute and the University Hospital, providing access to relevant material from model systems and patients. A commitment to teaching in the master’s program Medical Life Sciences curricular teaching in medicine is required.
• Comprehensive knowledge and experience in the field of functional genomics and epigenetics, in particular with broad expertise in relevant bioinformatic analysis and/or wetlab techniques.
• Knowledge in cell biology of differentiation processes, cellular systems (iPSC, organoids) and / or protocol development of single cell analysis / CRISPR screens is desirable.
You will find excellent research conditions in Schleswig-Holstein: the environment provides the key technologies of modern biomedical research, and you will be working with the leading researchers in the field of inflammation research. The participating institutions also support family-friendly structures.
The position has a civil servant status for a limited period of initially three years. After positive evaluation, an extension of another three years is possible.
Reference is made to the recruitment requirements pursuant to §§ 61 and 64 of the Higher Education Act of the state of Schleswig-Holstein. Further information is available at www.berufungen.uni-kiel.de/de.
The Higher Education Act requires the Faculty of Medicine at Kiel University and the Medicine Section of the University of Lübeck to cooperate closely with each other and with the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH), to form focus points, and to coordinate these with each other. The state government expects that the clinics, institutes and newly appointed scientists will cooperate with each other accordingly.
Kiel University seeks to increase the proportion of female scientists in research and teaching, and is thus specifically calling on appropriately qualified women to apply. Women with equivalent suitability, ability and professional performance will be given priority.
The University is committed to employing individuals with disabilities. For this reason, disabled applicants with equal qualifications, competence and professional performance will be given priority.
We explicitly encourage candidates with a migration background to apply.
Candidates are not required to submit a photograph with their application and are requested not to do so.
Applications with the usual documents (CV, list of publications, list of presentations, copies of academic certificates, 3 top publications) are to be submitted in electronic form, stating the private and work address with telephone number and e-mail address by April 26, 2019 to:
Dean of the Faculty of Medicine of Kiel University
