The Medical Faculty, Otto-von-Guericke-University, Magdeburg, Germany offers an immediate appointment for a
W2 Professorship in Neuroanatomy (tenure-track)
in the Institute of Anatomy (Director: Prof. Dr. H.-J. Rothkötter). The initial employed appointment is for 5 years. Given positive evaluation the position will be continued permanently.
The appointee will represent the complete area of anatomy in research and medical education with a specific focus on neuroanatomy. We expect broad expertise in all areas of functional neuroanatomy. The German board certification for the medical specialization as anatomist or the certificate "specialist in anatomy' of the Anatomical Society is expected.
The candidate has an excellent scientific repertoire and research funding. The professor of neuroanatomy is instrumental in further development of the Faculty’s main research topics “Neurosciences” and "Immunology and Molecular Medicine of Inflammation" and cooperates with the local research institutions (Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology and German Center of Neurodegenerative Diseases -DZNE). Scientific concepts combining the molecular, cellular and genetic principles of neuroanatomy are expected. The aim is the integration into local collaborative research initiatives funded e.g. by the German Research Council.
All members of the Institute of Anatomy contribute to the teaching in anatomy, based on an integration of gross anatomy, microscopical anatomy, neuroanatomy and embryology. Excellent skills in teaching anatomy and experience in the development of modern education concepts are required.
Prerequisites for the position are the habilitation thesis or equivalent scientific achievements. The Otto-von-Guericke-University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the number of female faculty members and therefore strongly encourages applications by female candidates. Disabled candidates with essentially equal qualifications and professional achievements will be given preference.
