OFFER DESCRIPTION

Institute of Physiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences (Prague, Czech Republic) announces a call for a:

 

Junior Research Group Leader proposal

 

in the area of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology, compatible with the present research conducted at the Institute (see http://www.fgu.cas.cz/en ). The candidate is expected to perform studies using rodent models, advanced techniques of molecular and cell biology and functional assessment, also in collaborations with clinical scientists. A three-to-five year grant including salary, lab space, and operating costs, allowing the prospective Junior Research Group Leader to set up and run his/her lab, start building a team, and eventually apply for a permanent job.

 

Eligibility:

Up to 12 years after PhD graduation (excluding maternity leave), as of 1 June 2021.

Selection criteria:

 

Candidates will be selected on the basis of academic merit, i.e., the quality of their research proposal, publication record, and postdoctoral training. A vital asset will be intellectual independence, as documented, e.g., by independent publications (corresponding author), or previous (grant) awards. Securing additional funding is not required to apply for this start-up, but it will be a significant condition for extending the start-up funding beyond the initial three years.

Two-stage application procedure (all documents in English):

 

Stage 1: Submission of the following documents to fgu@fgu.cas.cz by 1 June 2021:

(i) letter of intent (research proposal) outlining the project (2 pages A4); (ii) professional CV; (iii) PhD graduation certificate/diploma; (iv) two recommendation letters.

Stage 1 results will be announced by 15 July 2021.

Stage 2: Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit full proposals (max. 6 pages) and deliver a public lecture as part of their interview at the Institute of Physiology. Successful candidate will be expected to take up his/her position between 1 January and 31 December 2022.
