The Faculty of Medicine invites applications for a developing professorship of Experimental Cardiovascular Pharmacology in the University Heart Center Regensburg (grade W2 with tenure-track leading to professorship for life at grade W3) for a period of six years with the legal status of temporary civil servant (Beamtenverhältnis auf Zeit), to be appointed as soon as possible.

The tenure-track professorship is supported by the Federal/Länder program for the promotion of young scientists (tenure-track program). Universität Regensburg offers the prospect, upon positive tenure evaluation, of transferring to a permanent position as W3 grade professor with the legal status civil servant for life (Beamtenverhältnis auf Lebenszeit).

The requirements for the tenure evaluation can be found at tt-satzung. We seek candidates to professionally represent the field of Pharmacology in research and teaching.

Initially, the main focus of the professorship will refer to research activities. The successful candidate is expected to strengthen the field of cardiovascular research at the faculty as well as at the university. Teaching relates to medicine and dentistry and is welcome for other degree programmes.

Prerequisites for taking up the position are, alongside the general conditions from public sector employment law, a completed university degree; pedagogic suitability; a very good doctoral thesis grade; outstanding, preferably international, research experience; and further academic performance appropriate to the early career stage (for example exceptional publications in internationally peer-reviewed journals) and a two-year postdoc period.

Applicants with an MD degree desirably should have a specialization in Pharmacology and Toxicology and/or Clinical Pharmacology. Insofar as the candidate undertook employment as a research associate or research assistant after their doctorate, the duration of the doctoral studies and the employment should not sum to more than six years/or in the case of medicine not more than nine years.

Applicant must have changed universities following the doctorate or have been academically active for at least two years somewhere other than Universität Regensburg before the application.

Applications containing the normal documents (resume, certificates, list of publications with copies of the most important papers) should be submitted, preferentially electronically ( by 31.10.2020 to the
