The University of Greifswald’s Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences is seeking candidates for the position of
“Professor” of Biochemistry III (W2)
for appointment by 01 April 2024.
We are looking for a scholar whose research and teaching fits in with the current degree courses at the Institute of Biochemistry. These are currently the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree courses "Biochemistry" and the M.Sc. degree course "Bioeconomy" starting in winter semester 2022/23.
The applicant should be an expert in a current field of biochemical research (e.g. protein biochemistry and/or modern biochemical-analytical methods) and able to represent the full scope of teaching in the subject discipline. The professorship should meaningfully complement the existing research areas at the Institute of Biochemistry and the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and actively participate in the University of Greifswald’s key field of research "Proteomics and Protein Technologies".
The successful candidate is expected to be willing to participate in committees of academic self-administration. International experience and willingness to teach in English are desirable.
Applicants must fulfil the requirements for a university professor according to § 58(1) of the Landeshochschulgesetz – LHG M-V (State Higher Education Act): a university degree, teaching experience and a high level of scientific research, which is generally documented by an outstanding doctoral degree. Further academic achievements are expected. § 58(2) LHG M-V stipulates that these are usually proven by a junior professorship, habilitation or equivalent.
In accordance with § 61 LHG M-V, the appointed professor will be assigned the status of a civil servant (Beamtenverhältnis) with unlimited tenure; alternatively, if the applicant is not permanently available: limited tenure as a civil servant or public service employee. As a general rule, permanent tenure as a civil servant (Beamtenverhältnis auf Lebenszeit) can only be awarded for the first time to persons who have not yet ended their 50th year of life when they enter employment.
This vacancy is open to all applicants, irrespective of gender. The University would like to increase the proportion of women in areas in which they are underrepresented and thus applications from women are particularly welcome and will be treated with priority if they have the same qualifications and as long as there are no clear reasons which make a fellow applicant more suitable. Women are specifically encouraged to apply for the position. Severely disabled applicants with the same professional and personal qualifications will be considered with preference. Unfortunately, application costs (e.g. travel expenses for interviews) will not be reimbursed by the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
For more information please contact Prof. Dr. Gerald Kerth, Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
Applications with all usual documents (Curriculum Vitae (CV) detailing the academic career, list of scholarly publications and courses taught, academic certificates, proof of teaching experience, details of externally raised funds, teaching and research concept) must be sent via email (one PDF file) by 24 June 2022, addressed to:
