The Faculty of Biology at the University of Münster, Germany, invites applications for the

Maria Sibylla Merian Professorship
with tenure-track (salary level W 1, 100%)

We are conducting an open search looking for an enthusiastic young researcher in the biosciences, whose line of research shows extraordinary promise for the development of an internationally recognized research program at our faculty.

The Faculty of Biology broadly represents the diversity and interdisciplinarity in modern biological research. Our six focus areas (biochemistry and biotechnology, bioenergetics and metabolism, evolution and biodiversity, the multiscale analysis of cellular systems, neuroscience and behaviour, plants) mirror the current research landscape and connect multiple biological institutes and university faculties.

The selected candidate will initially receive a 3+3-year appointment. Tenure and promotion will be based on internal and external evaluation (⁠​karriere/​en/​tenure-track/​index.shtml). A flexible and competitive funding package will cover staff and running costs for their research. The new Tenure Track Professor will be scientifically independent and associated with the institute of their choice ensuring suitable rooms, infrastructure and a stimulating scientific environment.

We encourage early career researchers with postdoctoral research experience and evidence of creative and high-quality research to apply. Active time in academia will be considered in the evaluation process. Parental and caregiving time, as well as part-time employment due to childcare and pandemic-related restrictions (e.g. closed childcare facilities), will be taken into account if indicated in the application documents.

The University of Münster strongly supports equal opportunity and diversity. We welcome all applicants regardless of sex, nationality, ethnic or social background, religion or worldview, disability, age, sexual orientation or gender identity. We are committed to creating family-friendly working conditions.

We actively encourage applications by women. Female candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements will be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal possibilities.

Please send your application, including a CV, list of publications, acquired third-party funds and a short research proposal (2-3 pages) by email, in a single PDF document, to the "Apply" button by 23 April 2023.
