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 ( 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.

Work­ing field:

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.
