Organization Type

The Landau Campus of the University of Koblenz-Landau and Technische Universität Kaiserslautern are in the process of forming a joint university for engineering and technology. We are looking for you to help us as early as now to shape the start of our new university in 2023 at the Kaiserslautern location. 

The Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) is a research university with a focus on engineering and natural sciences with a strong international profile. In the field of basic research, the main focus lies on six collaborative research centres (CRCs) and transregio-CRCs. Important subject areas of applied research are developed in close cooperation with the ten research institutes in the vicinity. TUK is a campus university characterised by close relationships and a cooperative environment for all its members. 

At TUK in the Department of Biology the following position is to be filled as soon as possible: 

W 3 Professorship for ‘Animal Physiology’ (m/f/d) 

The successful candidate should represent the subject in research and teaching. 

The professorship (succeeding Prof. Friauf) should represent a current area of animal physiology in a research-oriented department and complement existing research priorities in membrane biology and systems biology. We are looking for a person with internationally recognized research achievements in animal physiology, successful and continuous third-party funding, specific didactic skills and suitable teaching experience. Methodologically, the candidate should strengthen and complement the existing expertise available at the department. The professorship will represent the subject of animal physiology in its full extent in the Bachelor program and will be involved in at least one of the three specialisations Ecology, Molecular Cell Biology or Neurobiology in the Master program. Competitive resources, including funding, positions, and space, will be provided. 

The State of Rhineland-Palatinate and TUK represent a support concept, in which a regular presence of the professors at the university is expected. Besides the general staff regulations, the appointment requirements stipulated in the University Act of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate apply.

TUK strives to promote an increase in the representation of women in research and teaching, and thus strongly invites qualified female academics to apply. Applicants with disabilities will receive preferential treatment when equally qualified (please enclose evidence). TUK is a family-friendly university; it values the diversity of its members and endorses equality of opportunity for all members. Applications of scientists from abroad are particularly welcome. 

By submitting your application form, you agree to the internal processing of your data for official purposes in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act of Rhineland-Palatinate. 

Applications including curriculum vitae, current and planned research activities, teaching experience, sources of external funding, and a publication list with up to four reprints should be submitted via E-Mail as one combined PDF-document by 1 October 2021 to: E-Mail: dekanat@biologie.uni-kl.de 

In addition , the candidates are requested to fill out and submit a form. The form can be downloaded at: https://www.bio.uni-kl.de/aktuelles/stellenangebote
