The Department of Biochemistry and Biology at the Faculty of Science of the University of Potsdam (UP) and the Leibniz-Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ) invite applications for a joint appointment (Jülicher Modell) in the following professorship
W3-Professorship for Genomics and Bioinformaticsin Horticultural Sciences
The professorship is expected to establish a new research group on genomics and bioin-formatics in horticultural crops, strengthening the cooperation between UP and IGZ as well as the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Golm (MPI-MP).
Candidates should have a proven capacity to integrate modern bioinformatics ap-proaches with the discovery and functional characterization of horticultural traits. A major research focus should be on the development of bioinformatics tools and on the analysis of genomics data from crop plants and their associated microorganisms. The successful candidate will lead the Department of Genomics and Bioinformatics at the IGZ. The can-didates’ research should focus on horticultural production constraints and global food security, and should contribute to the rapidly expanding technologies in plant bioinformatics.
Applicants should be internationally recognized in the relevant research field with an ex-cellent publication record in internationally renowned scientific journals and a proven ability to acquire externally funded projects. Experience in general science management, social skills and team-oriented leadership are also required.
The joint professorship is being filled under the Jülich Model, with a teaching obligation of at least 2 hours per week at the University of Potsdam.
The following application requirements for professors must be documented in accord-ance with Section 41 of the Brandenburg Higher Education Act (Brandenburgisches Hochschulgesetz, BbgHG): a completed university degree, pedagogical aptitude, and a special ability for scientific work, as is typically documented by a dissertation project; comprehensive competences in science management and additional scholarly achieve-ments as evidenced by a Habilitation (post-doctoral dissertation), a junior professorship or work as a research associate at an institution of higher education or an extramural re-search institution, or scholarly activity in the private sector, or in a similar social field, whether in Germany or abroad. The appointment procedure is conducted in accordance with Section 40 of the Brandenburg Higher Education Act.
The University strives for a balanced gender ratio at all levels. Severely disabled appli-cants will be given preferential consideration in the event of equal qualification. We ex-pressly invite applications from people with migration backgrounds.
The University of Potsdam supports newly appointed professors with its Dual Career Service and coaching support: www.uni-potsdam.de/berufungen.html
Please submit your application and relevant documentation (presentation of your research interests, CV, copies of academic certificates and credentials, list of pub-lications, list of courses taught, list of projects funded externally) until July 31st 2018 via email (in a single PDF file) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
