The Cells-in-Motion Interfaculty Centre – CiMIC at the University of Münster, Germany, invites applications for

CiM Gerty Cori Junior Group Leaders
with the option for tenure-track
(salary level TV-L E15, 100%)

in the following fields: Biomimetic Systems, Immune Cell Plasticity, Machine Learning, Metabolomics,
Quantitative Cell Biology, Synthetic Biology, Vascular Heterogeneity

The junior groups will be associated with CiMIC, an interfaculty structure of the Cells-in Motion Cluster of Excellence involving Medicine, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Sciences, Chemistry, Pharmacy and Biology. CiMIC aims to understand cellular behaviour at various levels using imaging as a central strategy.

Selected junior group leaders will have a 5-year appointment with the option of entering into a tenure-track professorial system. Tenure and promotion will be based on evaluation by CiMIC and the involved faculties. Successful applicants will receive flexible funding to cover their salary plus staff and running costs. The groups to be established will be located in a CiM building and, while scientifically independent, will be associated with a CiM laboratory to ensure the proper infrastructure and a stimulating scientific environment.

Postdoctoral researchers with several years of (international) research experience and outstanding publications in leading international journals are invited to submit their proposals. The Gerty Cori Junior Groups should have an impact on gender equality in the participating disciplines. Preference will be given to individuals whose interests are synergistic with ongoing collaborative research programmes at the involved faculties, the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine, the Centre for Soft Nanosciences (SoN) or the European Institute for Molecular Imaging (EIMI).

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 preferentially considered within the framework of the legal possibilities. We also welcome applications from candidates with severe disabilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will be preferentially considered.

Please send your application, including a CV, list of publications, acquired third-party funds and a short research proposal (2–3 pages) by email in a single PDF document to by 15 February 2018.
