Deadline: 17 aug 2014
CiM uniquely merges existing excellence at the University of Münster in cell biology and molecular imaging and integrates internationally visible interdisciplinary networks between the medical, natural sciences and mathematics faculties as well as the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine. Research fields relevant to our cluster include biophysical aspects of cell dynamics, cell-cell andor cell-matrix interactions, cell migration and or differentiation, mathematical modelling of biological systems, protein andor lipid biochemistry and biophysics, intracellular dynamics, and high resolution optical and non-optical imaging to study cell biology.
Postdoctoral researchers with excellent scientific track record in the area of biophysical aspects of cell behavior and mechanobiology, encompassing various biophysical and biochemical methods are invited to submit their proposals.
Successful applicants will receive flexible funding to cover the salary of the applicant (TVL-15, full employment) plus staff and running costs for up to 5 years. The junior group leader will be eligible to apply for additional funding to cover the costs of specific CiM-related projects and for participation in the CiM Graduate and Postgraduate Programmes. The groups will be located in a CiM building and, while scientifically independent, will be associated with a CiM laboratory to ensure the proper infrastructure and stimulating scientific environment.
The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the proportion of women academics. Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements will be preferably considered within the framework of the legal possibilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will be given preference.
Please send your application including a CV, list of publications and a short research proposal (2–3 pages) by email in a single PDF document to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 17th, 2014.
