Full Professor (W3) in Eukaryotic GeneticsINSTITUTE OF INDUSTRIAL GENETICS | AT THE EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY
The position will be located at the Center of Biochemical Engineering within the Institute of Pharmaceutical Biology, an institute that will be newly established by fusion of the current Institute of Industrial Genetics (with its new focus on eukaryotic genetics) and the Institute of Cell Biology and Immunology. The professorship will involve the cooperative leadership of the Institute of Pharmaceutical Biology.
Research of the professorship is in the area of molecular genetics of higher eukaryotes, with a focus on genome regulation/deregulation. Besides basic research, this includes the development and application of new methods for the targeted genetic manipulation of cells, aiming, for example, to explore proliferative, degenerative and/or regenerative processes in mammalian systems. Moreover, applications relevant to biomedical research and pharmaceutical biotechnology are desired.
In academic teaching, the successful candidate will be responsible for the field of genetics within the B.S c./M.Sc. study courses of Technical Biology. Contributions to the study courses Medical Engineering and Systems Biology (in preparation) are also expected. She or he will also be in charge of the isotope laboratory and the coordination of an isotope training course for Technical Biology students at the bachelor level.
