ZIK HALOmem /
Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg

Since its foundation in 2008, the Centre for Innovation Competence (ZIK) HALOmem at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg has devoted itself to the structural characterisation of membrane proteins together with analysis of the role played by the surrounding membrane.
HALOmem is expanding its expertise platform with the establishment of a new independent research group "Cryo-EM of membrane protein complexes", working and collaborating within the stimulating multidisciplinary environment that has established Halle as an internationally recognised centre for pure and applied protein biochemistry, biotechnology and biophysics.
HALOmem and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) seek a highly motivated and out-standing junior scientist for the position of:

Tenure Track Research Group Leader
"Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Membrane Protein Complexes"

Logo
The successful candidate will establish a team to study membrane protein complexes using cryo-electron microscopy (single particle reconstruction and/or tomography). The applicant will have trained in cryo-EM of biological samples, with documented experience at postgraduate and postdoctoral level. The candidate will enjoy unrestricted access to the 300 kV JEOL JEM-3200FSC (equipped with field emission gun, cryo-stage, in-line energy filter and GATAN K2 direct electron detector).
Ideally, the applicant should have experience in:
  • Working in an international scientific environment
  • Project coordination and leadership
  • Obtaining third party funding
  • Interacting within an interdisciplinary milieu
The group will receive funding from the BMBF, including an additional four co-workers and consumables for five years, as well as laboratory equipment necessary for the project. Implementation of the supplementary ZIK HALOmem Strategy Concept is a requirement, and the successful candidate is expected to contribute to establishment of the Research training programme „Halle School of Molecular Life Sciences (HaMol)“.
The group leader may be awarded the status of Junior Professor, in which case active participation in academic and administrative duties within the University is expected according to the Hochschulgesetz Sachsen-Anhalt
(§ 34 HSG-LSA), with corresponding requirements for recruitment according to § 35 HSG-LSA. Junior Professor­ships are awarded initially for a period of three years, after which a further three years may be granted upon positive evaluation. In such a case, the position offers the possibility of subsequent tenure at the Martin Luther University, which may or may not be submitted for tender depending on the success of the group leader.
The Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg strives to promote equal opportunities in science. Female and disabled applicants, qualified according to the above criteria, will be given preference over other candidates with equivalent relevant qualifications. Salary scale is subject to legal and budgetary policies of the University. The University provides arrangements for coordinating occupation and family.
