With the Professorship chemodynamical processes of nutrient and pollutant transport in the system soil-plant-atmosphere are to be investigated with a focus on soil and plants. Experimental studies, among others by labeling of nutrients and pollutants with stable and radioactive isotopes, are intended for the development of models for mass transport in this complex ecosystem in cooperation with colleagues at FZJ. The participation in the bioeconomy network my (BioSC) is desired.
Furthermore, the Professorship shall develop in the midterm a focus in the ecotoxicological assessment of new materials (such as nano- and bio-based materials), and contribute to the safety research for new technological developments, preferably in cooperation with the Fraunhofer IME and the DWI, Aachen.
The Professorship, as a member of the Institute for Environmental Research, should be involved in two of the research priorities of the RWTH Biology group (safety of plant biomass and bio-based molecules and materials). An international reputation in one or more of the above areas, as identified by corresponding success in acquisition of third-party funding, publications, project management and transfer is desired. The candidate will contribute signified- cantly to education in the study programs of biology and in particular the MSc Ecotoxicology at RWTH Aachen University. Cooperation in current and planned research projects of both institutions, RWTH and FZJ, is strongly encouraged.
A Ph.D. degree is required; additionally, Habilitation (post-doctoral lecturing qualification), an exemplary record of research achievement as an assistant / an associate / a junior professor or university researcher and/or an outstanding career outside academia are highly desirable. Ability in and commitment to teaching are essential. The application should include supporting documents regarding success in teaching. German is not necessary to begin but will be expected as a teaching language within the first 5 years.
The professorship is limited for a fixed term of five years. Subsequently there will be an opportunity to apply as the successor of a then vacant W3 position in Envirommental Biology and Chemodynamics
RWTH Aachen succeeded in the Excellence Initiative of the federal and state governments and currently receives funding for its institutional strategy "Meeting Global Challenges," two excellence clusters, and a graduate school.
Today's global and societal challenges increasingly require interdisciplinary collaborative research approaches. RWTH Aachen's eight profile areas reflect the interdisciplinary strengths of the University.
RWTH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich, a high-profile non-university research institution, have established JARA, the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance. JARA provides a scientific environment that is in the top international league and attracts the best researchers worldwide.
With RWTH Aachen Campus, the University is creating a unique portfolio of services for cooperation in specialist clusters in which RWTH Aachen is providing both know-how and a unique research infrastructure. With 19 research clusters on an 800,000 square meter site, RWTH Aachen Campus will be one of the largest technology-oriented research landscapes in Europe.
Through the implementation of target agreements as part of its certification as a family friendly university in 2009, RWTH Aachen has created structures, processes, and instruments that support the family friendly organization of the University and the ensure the compatibility of studies, career, and family.
Science has defined the structural change from a mining area to a technology region and today it is the most important economic factor. More than 50,000 people study and teach at the four universities and colleges in the Aachen region.
More than 7,000 international RWTH students from 120 nations, along with a large number of researchers from all over the world, give the scientific center of Aachen an open, international atmosphere. Teaching and research also find their expression in the image of the city. Thanks to the students and their diverse cultural life, the tradition-rich City of Aachen has a lively and young appearance, particularly in the student quarter of Pontviertel. Its proximity to the Eifel and the Ardennes, to Maastricht and Brussels with their linguistic and cultural distinctiveness, give the city that lies in the shadow of Charlemagne's palace chapel a particular charm.
