The Biotechnology Centre (BIOTEC) (, an institute at the Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB), developing innovative technologies and approaches for basic and applied research and teaching in the modern life sciences, with particular strengths in molecular cell- and developmental biology, physical biology, and computational biology, offers a 

Chair (W3) of Cellular Biochemistry

starting at 1. October 2018.

The successful applicant will represent the field of Cellular Biochemistry in research and teaching. Her/His research should integrate well with and complement the interdisciplinary research at the BIOTEC and the wider Dresden research campus (e.g., the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden, the Center for Molecular Bioengineering (B CUBE), the School Science- and the Carl Gustav Carus Faculty of Medicine, as well as the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics. Teaching (in English) is possible and expected in the CMCB’s international Master programmes in “Molecular Bioengineering”, “Nanobiophysics”, and “Regenerative Biology and Medicine”, in the Bachelor programme “Molecular Biotechnology” of the Faculty of Biology, and in the Dresden International PhD program DIPP. The duties include participation in academic selfadministration.

We are seeking outstanding applicants with an international scientific reputation in the field of Cellular Biochemistry. Research could be in any area of Cellular Biochemistry. A focus could be for example on the biochemical basis of forming macromolecular assemblies inside the cell, the role of weak biomolecular interactions in intracellular organisation, or dynamic regulatory processes leading to pattern formation in early development, including the setup of neuronal circuitry. An excellent publication track record and a proven ability to attract significant third-party funding are required. Applicants must fulfil the employment qualification requirements of § 58 of the Act on the Autonomy of Institutions of Higher Education in the Free State of Saxony (Higher Education Act of the Free State of Saxony – SächsHSFG).
