Building on its more than 500-year-long tradition, it offers a broad spectrum that covers all areas of knowledge within its 18 Faculties, ranging from the humanities, law, economics and social sciences, to medicine and the natural sciences.
The Faculty of Medicine invites applications for a Junior Professorship (W1) (3 years/tenure track leading to W2) of Translational Molecular Pathology commencing as soon as possible.
The professorship is located at the Institute of Pathology of the University of Munich. The primary tasks of the successful candidate include research, teaching and diagnostic pathology.
It is expected to contribute significantly to the development of pathology by research in and diagnostic implementation of molecular methods including bioinformatics and artificial intelligence. It should participate in the research networks of the medical faculty, e. g. the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK), the Comprehensive Cancer Center Munich (CCCM) and the Bavarian Center for Cancer Research (BZKF).
Prerequisites for this position are a university degree, teaching skills at university level and an aptitude for an academic career, usually evidenced by the excellent quality of a doctoral degree. If the applicant was employed as a research assistant either before or after obtaining the doctoral degree, the entire duration of the period of employment and of the doctoral degree should not exceed six years.
The position is a fixed-term professorship for the duration of three years. Pending a positive evaluation, the position may be extended by another period of three years. After a minimum of three years, pending a positive evaluation of the candidate’s aptitude for teaching and research as well as the candidate’s pedagogical and personal aptitude, the appointment may be converted to an indefinite W2-professorship (tenure). If the applicant was already a member of LMU Munich at the time of the appointment to a junior professorship, such a tenure option may only be exercised in exceptional cases.
LMU Munich makes a point of providing newly appointed professors with various types of support, such as welcoming services and assistance for dual career couples.
