The Faculty of Medicine at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) invites applications for a
Tenure-Track Position as Associate Professor of Clinical Systems Immunology (Salary Group W2)
at the Department of Medicine 3 – Rheumatology and Immunology. The position is to be filled by the earliest possible starting date for an initial period of six years. FAU offers the long-term perspective of a permanent appointment to a full professorship if the requirements of the tenure evaluation are met.
We seek to appoint a leading expert with an internationally visible profile in research and teaching. The purpose of the professorship is to investigate the heterogeneity of immune cell networks in diseases in order to better understand differences in the individual clinical progression of patients. Molecular-biological and bioinformatic methods will be applied in a clinical context. Participation in the research networks of the Faculty of Medicine (Collaborative Research Centers, Research Training Groups, Interdisciplinary Center for Clinical Research) is expected as well as participation in teaching students. The Faculty of Medicine offers degree programs in medicine, dentistry, molecular medicine, medical process management, midwifery science, logopedics and the interfaculty programs in medical engineering and integrated immunology.
Successful candidates should demonstrate an excellent academic track record in research and teaching at the highest international standards. They should have substantial research experience abroad and/or international cooperations as well as experience in managing research projects and in raising third-party funding. A university degree in medicine and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as a passion for education and relevant teaching experience are prerequisites. Candidates who are able and willing to teach in both English and German are preferred. The position also requires additional postdoctoral qualifications. These should be in the form of a habilitation (postdoctoral thesis) or equivalent academic qualifications. These qualifications may also have been achieved in a non-university context or through a junior faculty position (for example as assistant professor). Candidates with further qualifications in the field of internal medicine are desired.
The successful candidate should become actively involved in administering academic affairs and in developing strategic initiatives. FAU pursues a policy of intense student mentoring and therefore expects its teaching staff to be present during lecture periods.
FAU offers an outstandingly productive research environment as well as a passionate and multi-disciplinary scholarly community within a vibrant institutional network.
FAU offers career development and an attractive initial package. Based on international standards and transparent performance agreements, FAU ensures a fair tenure-track evaluation process.
In its pursuit of academic excellence, FAU is committed to equality of opportunity and to a proactive and inclusive approach, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture and values diversity. FAU is a family-friendly employer and responsive to the needs of dual career couples.
