The Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research (Bad Nauheim,
Germany) invites applications for Research Group Leaders (m/f/d) -
Cardiopulmonary Institute (CPI), Bad Nauheim, Frankfurt, Gießen.
The Cardiopulmonary Institute (CPI) is a joint research institute of the
Goethe University Frankfurt, the Justus Liebig University Giessen and the Max
Planck Society, supported by the German Cluster of Excellence Initiative.
The CPI strives to make groundbreaking contributions to cardiopulmonary
science with the long-term goal of reducing morbidity and mortality in
cardiopulmonary diseases. Basic research in the CPI is curiosity-driven with a
strong focus on gene regulation, nuclear function and cell signaling ranging
from the structural and molecular level to functional genomics and systems
approaches. Researchers are supported by state-of-the-art core facilities
which offer services in next generation sequencing, proteomics,
bioinformatics, cytometry, microscopy, and small animal imaging.
We seek outstanding, interactive candidates with a strong publication record
and an innovative research program in any area of cellular and molecular organ
tissue morphogenesis, remodeling, repair and regeneration
cellular plasticity and heterogeneity in tissue homeostasis and disease
surveillance mechanisms and quality control processes
Previous experience in cardio-pulmonary research is not required but we would
appreciate the willingness of a newly appointed group leader to address
questions relevant for cardio-pulmonary research in the future.
Positions are initially offered for a period of 6 years and can be extended
following positive evaluation. Group leaders are offered an attractive package
including an annual budget of 250.000 EUR, sufficient to fund a postdoc, a PhD
student, a technician and consumables. Additional funds are available from the
competitive internal CPI funding scheme and by participation in local and
regional research networks.
The groups will be located at the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung
Research in Bad Nauheim and will have full access to all facilities
available at the Max Planck Institute and the CPI.
The Max Planck Society is committed to increase the number of individuals with
disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such
qualified individuals. Furthermore, The Max Planck Society strives for gender
and diversity equality. We welcome applications from all backgrounds.
We especially welcome dual career applicants.
