Technische Universität Dresden - Center for Molecular Bioengineering (B CUBE)
The TU Dresden is one of eleven German universities that were identified as an “excellence university”. TUD has about 36.500 students and almost 5319 employees, 507 professors among them, and, thus, is the largest university in Saxony, today.
Having been committed to sciences and the engineering before the reunification of Germany, TU Dresden now is a multi-discipline university, also offering humanities and social sciences as well as medicine.
Chair (W3) of Bioprospecting
The position is to be filled starting at winter semester 2018. The B CUBE (www.tu-dresden.de/bcube) is an interdisciplinary centre at the Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB) focusing on research and teaching in the areas of Bioprospecting, BioNano Tools and Biomimetic Materials.
The holder of the chair will represent the area of Bioprospecting in research and teaching, e.g., in the Bachelor and Master programs of the Faculty of Science, in the international Master programs „Molecular Bioengineering“ and “Nanobiophysics” of the CMCB, as well as in the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB). A willingness and ability to conduct classes in English is expected. The candidate is expected to lead an innovative research program to identify and study technologically promising biological phenomena on the macroscopic, mesoscopic or molecular scale from animals, plants or microorganisms. The biological phenomena under study may fall within a wide range of research topics including, for example, structural colors, self-healing materials, bio-adhesion, mechanical actuation and sensorics.
The Technische Universität Dresden provides a rich environment for scientific collaboration including the Faculty of Science, the Carl Gustav Carus Faculty of Medicine, the Biotechnology Centre, the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden and other partner, like the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research and the Max Plank Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics. The duties include participation in academic self-administration.
We are seeking an outstanding applicant with international scientific qualification. The successful applicant should have a distinguished international reputation in the field of Bioprospecting or related areas, and a strong track record in the acquisition of third-party funding. Experience in interdisciplinary cooperation with university and non-university research groups is highly desirable.
Applicants must fulfil the employment qualification requirements § 58 of the Act Governing Academic Freedom in Higher Education in the Free State of Saxony (Saxon Academic Free-dom in Higher Education Act – SächsHSFG). They must have a university degree in natural sciences and a habilitation or equivalent outstanding record of research achievements.
