The University Medical Center Göttingen is a tertiary care center and offers great de velopment potential. Its 7,700 employees work in over 65 departments and facilities to provide top-quality patient care, excellent research and modern teaching. Göttingen, “City of Science”, located near the center of Germany, the University Medical Center Göttingen is embedded in the city’s attractive network of scientific researchfacilities.

About us:
The ENI-G, a partnership between the University Medical Center Göttingen and the Max-Planck-Society, provides an exceptional environment for excellent researchers in theneurosciences.

We seek:
Applicants with an outstanding record of research in either neuroscience or with excitable cells in general. Possible topics range from molecular and cellular physiology, neuronal circuit analysis, imaging (at all scales), as well as computational and cognitive neuroscience, with emphasis on health and disease. Currently there is a focus of the group leaders of the ENI-G on physiology, sensory processing and systems neuroscience in multiple species, ranging from invertebrates to humans. Research that either complements or goes beyond these already established focal points at the ENI-Gis welcome.

We offer:
Group leaders a maximal amount of independence while also providing the support necessary to build
up a new research program. ENI-G will provide office and laboratory space as well as a generous start-up package. State of the art equipment, including dedicated microscopy infrastructure, animal  facilities, a precision workshop, IT and administrative support are available in-house. In addition,  unparalleled opportunities for Institutes (Biophysical Chemistry, Experimental Medicine, and Dynamics and Self Organization), the German Primate Center and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience. We will work closely with the recently established cluster of Excellence “Multiscale Bioimaging: from Molecular Machines to Networks of Excitable Cells (” as well as the newly starting Heart.

In addition to the excellent research environment that ENI-G provides, its independent group leaders can benefit from the resources and funding opportunities offered by the opportunities for teaching.

You will have an experienced mentor by your side, receive broad administrative support, professional leadership training, and help with relocation and establishing a life in Germany, including visa application, housing, schooling, and day-care. Successful group leaders will have the opportunity to obtain a permanent position after a two step internal and external evaluation.

We look forward to:
Applications from outstanding researchers who are enthusiastic about pursuing an independent research program in an environment that supports cutting edge research. The successful candidate is expected to develop a vigorous research program and should have received a Ph.D. within the past five years. Relevant research training and outstanding research reflected by high-impact publications are a prerequisite for consideration.The applicant is expected to acquire competitive third-party funding, and eligibility for ERCStartingGrant/DFGEmmy Noether level funding(or comparable) is a requirement.
