Tenure Track Assistant Professorship in Molecular Microbiology

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark, invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor of Molecular Microbiology. We are looking for an outstanding junior researcher with an innovative mindset and intellectual curiosity to strengthen and complement the research profile of the Research Unit for Molecular Microbiology. The position is for a duration of three years, after which a position at the level of associate professor will be made available, subject to a positive assessment. This is an exciting opportunity for highly motivated research talents to develop their independent research programme in a well- equipped and highly supportive environment.

Application deadline: 31 March 2022. Starting date: 1 August 2022, or soon thereafter.

All research areas within Molecular Microbiology are considered, but candidates with research interests in bacterial pathogenesis and antimicrobial resistance, the human microbiome or synthetic biology are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will establish their research programme, ideally with national or international collaborations, within the Research Unit for Molecular Microbiology. They are expected to supervise student projects from Bachelor to PhD level, disseminate their results through publication in international peer-reviewed journals and seek external research funding.

The Research Unit for Molecular Microbiology offers shared fully equipped biosafety level 1 and 2 laboratories, including a climate-controlled fluorescence microscope, FACS instrument and a medium-throughput semi- automated chemical screening platform within the BSL-2 laboratory. We also cultivate our links to the other sections of the department that contain absolute state-of-the-art research infrastructure for biomolecular mass spectrometry, advanced bioimaging and high-throughput sequencing. Furthermore, we aim to strengthen our joint research activities with clinicians working in Odense University Hospital, which is currently being built immediately adjacent to the department.

The successful candidate should have:

  • A PhD in Microbiology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology or a related field
  • At least three years of postdoctoral experience
  • A strong publication record with first-author publications in leading international journals
  • Experience of teaching at undergraduate level, and a strong commitment to teach and supervise students
  • A track record of successful collaborations
  • Proficiency in spoken and written English.
  • Additional factors that will be evaluated positively (but are not mandatory) include:

  • Having previously obtained external funding as primary applicant
  • Formal pedagogical qualifications
  • Prior experience of student supervision.
  • We offer:

  • An assistant professor position of three years followed by the possibility of subsequent full tenure as associate professor.
  • A stimulating, collaborative, and international research environment
  • Relevant courses in university teaching, research management, grantsmanship, and Danish language to develop the applicant's academic career
  • Dedicated assistance and support with various practical, social, and legal aspects (housing, visa, administration, tax etc.), especially for international candidates through our international staff office (ISO) and department.
  • For further information please consult our Department brochure or contact Head of Section Birgitte H. Kallipolitis bhk@bmb.sdu.dk or Head of Department Jakob Møller-Jensen jakobm@bmb.sdu.dk.
