As one of Europe’s leading research universities, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich is committed to the highest international standards of excellence in research and teaching. 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 Professorship (W2) (6 years/tenure track) of Molecular Physiology of Neurogenesis commencing as soon as possible.
Applicants are expected to lead internationally competitive research in the field of neurogenesis with a focus on the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of neuronal fate acquisition and differentiation. This knowledge should be used to advance approaches towards replacement of neurons in disease conditions. The successful candidate is expected to integrate well into the research at the Biomedical Center and into excellence clusters and priority programs in Munich. Teaching Physiology with a focus on neurophysiology in the curriculum of preclinical medicine is expected.
LMU Munich seeks to appoint a highly qualified junior academic to this professorship and, therefore, especially encourages early-career scholars to apply. Prerequisites for this position are a university degree and a doctoral degree or a comparable specific qualification. With an excellent record in research and teaching to date, prospective candidates will have demonstrated the potential for an outstanding academic career.
The initial appointment will be for six years. After a minimum of three years, it can be converted into a permanent position pending a positive evaluation of the candidate’s performance in research and teaching as well as his or her personal aptitude and if all legal conditions are met.
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.
LMU Munich is an equal opportunity employer. The University continues to be very successful in increasing the number of female faculty members and strongly encourages applications from female candidates. LMU Munich intends to enhance the diversity of its faculty members.
People with disabilities who are equally as qualified as other applicants will receive preferential treatment.
