Institute for Molecular Biology (IMB), Mainz, Germany
The Institute of Molecular Biology
funded by the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation is looking for Research Group Leaders (#HURGL01)
The Institute of Molecular Biology gGmbH (IMB, www.imb.de) is a research centre situated on the campus of Mainz University, Germany. We are generously funded by the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation, which has committed 100 million Euros to IMB. Our research focus is on gene regulation and nuclear function, ranging from the structural and molecular to the organismic level. The researchers at IMB are supported by strong core facilities that offer state-of-the-art services in bioinformatics, cytometry, genomics, histology and microscopy, proteomics and protein production.
We seek outstanding, interactive candidates with a strong publication record and an innovative research profile in chromatin or RNA biology, transcription, DNA damage and genome integrity, DNA editing, nuclear architecture and cell biology, or computational biology in these areas. Possibilities to co-operate with local and regional research networks, e.g. in the neurosciences, are encouraged (see DFG-funded coordinated programmes SFB 1080 and 1193, and SFB-TR 128).
Positions are initially offered for a period of 5 years and can be renewed for an additional 5 years following positive evaluation. The package for group leaders includes an attractive salary, generous start-up funding and an annual budget sufficient to fund a postdoc, a PhD student and a technician as well as corresponding consumables and core facility services. There are no teaching obligations, but teaching opportunities are available at Mainz University.
The deadline for applications is 31 March 2018. Interviews will take place in Mainz on 22-23 May 2018.
