The “Cells in Motion Interfaculty Centre – CiMIC” and the Institute of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry at the University of Münster, Germany, invite applications for a

Professorship (W2) for Coordination Chemistry and Molecular Imaging

starting on 1 April 2018.

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the undergraduate and graduate teaching curriculum in inorganic chemistry and general chemistry for students of chemistry and students minoring in chemistry, representing the field of inorganic chemistry in its full breadth. Teaching experience in inorganic chemistry is mandatory.

Applicants should be internationally renowned for their contributions to a topical area of coordination chemistry closely related to molecular imaging and should have a history of third party funding. Close cooperation with local research groups, especially those of the faculty and at the CiMIC, is expected. The CiMIC is an interfaculty centre of the Cells in Motion Cluster of Excellence, involving medicine, physics, mathematics, computer science, chemistry, pharmacy and biology. CiMIC is the structural basis for developing further the excellence areas of cell dynamics and imaging at the University of Münster. Cooperation with existing Collaborative Research Centres / Graduate Schools and the European Institute for Molecular Imaging (EIMI) are expected.

Prerequisite for the application are academic achievements made as a Juniorprofessor (assistant professor), in a Habilitation (postdoctoral qualification), as a member of the academic staff of a university or non-university research institute, or in a research position in business, industry, ad-ministration or other relevant fields in Germany or abroad.
