2 Research Group Leaders (fields of proteomics, protein chemistry, biophysics, systems biology and stem cells)

The TU Dresden is one out of eleven German Universities of Excellence: strong in research with excellent post-graduate programs particularly in biomedical research, physics, material science, electronics and informatics. As a progressive full-status university with 14 faculties it is the largest technical university in Germany.
The Biotechnology Centre (BIOTEC) is an interdisciplinary centre focused on molecular bio-engineering, proteomics, genomics, biophysics, stem cells and computational biology (for more details please refer to: http://tu-dresden.de/die_tu_dresden/zentrale_einrichtungen/biotec).
BIOTEC is recruiting
2 Research Group Leaders (E 14 / E 15 TV-L)
- with the option leading to permanent positions -
with internationally outstanding scientific accomplishments to start their independent research careers working in the fields of the BIOTEC encompassing proteomics, protein chemistry, biophysics, systems biology and stem cells. BIOTEC would also consider applicants working in other research areas with relevance to our central themes. The initial appointment is for 6 years according to the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG). The positions will give you an excellent chance for further academic qualification. Depending on the results of an evaluation before the end of the 4th year, a permanent position in accordance with a tenure track procedure leading to a W2/W3 chair is available. To this end, based on positive evaluation of accomplishments and results in research and teaching, a result oriented competitive tenure procedure in the relevant research area will be initiated. 
Tasks: The successful applicant will conduct independent interdisciplinary research in their research field. This includes the conception and coordination of a research program, the involvement of collaborative partners and the successful implementation of research activities and publications as well as teaching, mainly in our Masters programs (see http://www.biotec.tu-dresden.de/teaching/masters-courses.html). Applicants establishing their first research group are encouraged to apply.
Requirements: Suitable applicants must hold a university degree in natural or related sciences, a doctoral degree and an outstanding international scientific track record from post-doctoral endeavors. The successful applicants will display a high degree of creativity and interdisciplinary thinking.
In addition to salary for 6 years, the positions each include a technical assistant, secretarial support, funding for a PhD student and a start-up package for running costs. BIOTEC also provides a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art technology platforms including massively parallel DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, FACS, advanced light microscopy, microstructuring and others (see http://www.biotec.tu-dresden.de/technology-platform/services.html).
BIOTEC is located on the Life Science Campus in the same building as the CRTD (www.crtd.tu-dresden.de), and near the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (www.mpi-cbg.de), the Faculty of Medicine “Carl Gustav Carus” (http://tu-dresden.de/die_tu_dresden/fakultaeten/medizinische_fakultaet). Collectively we operate an international PhD program that recruits outstanding candidates to Dresden twice annually (February and September). The successful applicants can participate in this program (see www.digs-bb.de).
