The successful candidate should have a strong interest to applied research as well as the translation of newly developed methods and technologies into medical practice.
An excellent publication record demonstrating the quality of the research and a strong funding record are expected, as well as experience with respect to the initiation of interdisciplinary collaborative research projects. The successful candidate will be engaged in teaching activities (2 hours per week) at Charité, BIH, and MDC, supervise Master and Doctoral candidates, and participate in academic self-organization.
