To foster interdisciplinary research focusing on morphomolecular biomarker discoveries, TUM has also advertised a professorship in Computational Pathology,

Responsibilities of the position include research and teaching, as well as the promotion of early-career scientists. We seek to appoint an expert in translational
morphomelcular pathology, preferably in the field of oncology, to further promote innovative and internationally visible advances in this area of research. The successful

The teaching load includes courses in the subject area and basic courses offered by the TUM School of Medicine, as well as courses for other TUM schools and departments.

achievements in research and teaching relevant to their career level in an internationally recognized scientific environment. Successful candidates show pedagogical
aptitude, including the ability to teach in English. Substantial research experience abroad are expected. Moreover, candidates should possess a proven ability to acquire
third-party funding for cooperative research projects (e.g. DFG, EU, BMBF) and - depending on the career level - to lead such projects. A successful application for an
advanced personal research fellowship (e.g. Heisenberg, ERC) as well as the board certification in Pathology are desired.
