Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty II

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin (TU Ber­lin) - Fac­ulty II (Math­em­at­ics and Sci­ences) - Insti­tute of Chem­istry invites applic­a­tions for a pos­i­tion of a

Uni­versity Pro­fessor - salary grade W2

in the field of "Biocata­lysis/Bio­lo­gical Chem­istry".

Work­ing field:

The pos­i­tion requires research and teach­ing in the area of Bio­lo­gical Chem­istry at the Insti­tute of Chem­istry. Teach­ing will be required in the study pro­grams of Chem­istry (BSc/MSc) and Bio­lo­gical Chem­istry (MSc). Can­did­ates should be able to teach in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Fur­ther­more, can­did­ates are expec­ted to super­vise stu­dents’ theses on Bach­elor, Mas­ter and PhD level as well as to par­ti­cip­ate in the aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion of the uni­versity.
The research focus of suc­cess­ful can­did­ates should address the field of employ­ment, char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion and tar­geted design of pro­teins and other molecules as biocata­lysts up to the whole-cell level by applic­a­tion of state-of-the-art molecu­lar bio­lo­gical, chem­ical syn­thetic and (bio)phys­ical meth­ods. The area of research expert­ise should allow for co-oper­a­tions in the molecu­lar life sci­ences or other key research sub­jects of the Insti­tute of Chem­istry at TU Ber­lin as well as par­ti­cip­a­tion in cur­rent and future col­lab­or­at­ive research activ­it­ies, in par­tic­u­lar within the Cluster of Excel­lence “Uni­fy­ing Sys­tems in Cata­lysis (UniSy­sCat)” and the Research Train­ing Group “Bio­act­ive Pep­tides”.


Can­did­ates must ful­fill the require­ments for appoint­ment at the pro­fess­or­ial level in com­pli­ance with § 100 Ber­lHG (Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act). These include a com­pleted aca­demic edu­ca­tion in Chem­istry, Bio­chem­istry, Bio­lo­gical Chem­istry or a com­par­able dis­cip­line, ped­ago­gical-didactic qual­i­fic­a­tions, qual­i­fied achieve­ments in research (doc­tor­ate) and addi­tional aca­demic achieve­ments. Influ­en­tial and trend-set­ting research achieve­ments are doc­u­mented by pub­lic­a­tions in inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible peer-reviewed journ­als, and sub­stan­tial suc­cess in rais­ing third-party fund­ing (over the last 5 years). Sub­stan­tial ped­ago­gical-didactic qual­i­fic­a­tions are demon­strated by uni­versity-level teach­ing and super­vi­sion exper­i­ence and com­ple­men­ted by a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for fur­ther inform­a­tion see TUB Web­site, quick access 144242). Exper­i­ence in lead­ing lar­ger research groups are also expec­ted.
We are look­ing for can­did­ates with an inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible pro­file in the area of Biocata­lysis, Syn­thetic Bio­logy or Bio­lo­gical Chem­istry, who will rep­res­ent this area in research and teach­ing, and com­ple­ments the pro­file of the Insti­tute of Chem­istry. The research focus of the can­did­ate is expec­ted to be in the area of char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion and tar­geted design of bio­lo­gical or chem­ical molecu­lar sys­tems up to the whole-cell level, which may reach out into the manip­u­la­tion and re-design with the toolkit of Syn­thetic Bio­logy. A broad meth­od­ical scope and strong dis­pos­i­tion for inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research, e.g. for bridging between the­ory and exper­i­ment, are desir­able.

How to ap­ply:

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is determ­ined to increase the pro­por­tion of women in research and teach­ing and there­fore strongly encour­ages qual­i­fied female research­ers to apply. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored. The TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to the goals of equal oppor­tun­it­ies.

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is a cer­ti­fied fam­ily-friendly higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tion, and our Dual Career Ser­vice offers assist­ance to you and your fam­ily when relo­cat­ing to Ber­lin. Applic­a­tions from abroad are expli­citely wel­come.
