Leiter/Leiterin Forschungsgruppe

The Rudolf Virchow Center / Research Center for Experimental Biomedicine of the University of Würzburg (RVZ) was one of the first research centers founded by the German research foundation (DFG). The RVZ is part of the Medical Campus of University Hospital Würzburg and has a strong focus on biomedical imaging, structural biology and cardiovascular disease. We use state-of the art technologies to investigate proteins that regulate key cellular functions and whose study will advance our understanding of the etiology, diagnosis or treatment of diseases.

Research activities focus on protein structure and function, proteins in cellular signaling, and proteins in cell-cell interactions and motility, with a strong commitment to both basic and translational biomedical research. Among its diverse research areas, the center has a particular interest in platelet and megakaryocyte biology and related biomedical fields.

We are inviting applications for a

Group Leader (f/m/d)

The remuneration package comprises a competitive salary (according to salary agreement TV-L), a comprehensive pension scheme, medical, educational and other social benefits, as well as financial support for relocation and installation, including your family, and the availability of an excellent child care facility on campus.

Your role
You will lead a research group to pursue highly ambitious and original research at the frontier of vascular biology, hematopoiesis, cardiovascular disease or related fields. Research activities should complement ongoing activities in the center and at the university, in particular the Würzburg Platelet Group (www.platelets.eu) and the Collaborative Research Center / Transregio 240 „Platelets“ (www.platelets.eu/tr240/), a platelet research consortium that was established in 2018 to investigate the diverse functions of platelets beyond classical hemostasis. In general, the RVZ appoints group leaders early in their career and provides them with a very supportive, collaborative environment and generous work package for their independent position. Significant core funding and limited teaching responsibilities allow you undertake a farsighted research program.

Wissenschaft

The Rudolf Virchow Center / Research Center for Experimental Biomedicine of the University of Würzburg offers at the earliest possible date a position as

PhD student/Postdoctoral researcher (f/m/d)
(Biophysics / Physics / Engineering)
In the field of Nanophotonics & Biophysics

The Heinze Lab is a cross-disciplinary team of physicists and biologists and aims to combine high-resolution concepts of fluorescence microscopy with tricks from material sciences. Our approach involves designing and nanofabricating biocompatible nanostructured microscopy cover glasses for live cell applications that give rise to fundamentally new optical properties and the manipulation of light for super-resolution imaging.

The project involves modelling, design and development of such metamaterial based substrates that serve as modified cover glasses for live-cell imaging. The overall goal is to detect conformational changes and cellular receptor interactions, even for relatively large donor-acceptor-distances that are typically not accessible using classic (single molecule) imaging. The project particularly requires enthusiasm for biomolecular sciences, plasmonics and high-resolution microscopy.

What we offer

We offer a three years position, which will be initially funded for one year and be extended in the case of a positive evaluation, at the Rudolf Virchow Center of the University of Würzburg. The position can begin earliest in February 2020 and comes with a competitive TV-L salary. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to enroll in the Graduate School for Life Sciences (GSLS) in Würzburg, offering access to an extensive transferable skills program, travel funds and administrative support. For postdoctoral researchers the GSLS offers workshops and mentoring via their PostDoc Plus program.

The Rudolf Virchow Center is a highly competitive  international research institute with an outstanding infrastructure. We have in-house access to state-of-the-art instrumentation for nanofabrication and microscopy and to an extensive range of modern biophysical and cell biological equipment. We are integrated into a stimulating cross-disciplinary environment that includes our partners at the physics department, the Max Planck Research Group in Systems Immunology, the Biocenter, the Institute for Molecular Infection Biology, and the University Hospital in Würzburg.

Würzburg is located in the beautiful, wine-growing area of Franconia, in proximity of Frankfurt (1 hour by train) and Munich (2 hours).

You will have access to both national and public-service pension schemes (VBL), health care, and 30 days of holiday entitlement in addition to 13 annual public holidays in Bavaria. The JMU Welcome Center supports international candidates in finding accommodation as well as administrative matters - and the University also offers support for researchers with children, including flexible working hours and childcare.

Your qualification profile

We are interested in a PhD candidate or postdoctoral researcher with strong background in condensed matter physics holding a Master’s degree in Physics, Electrical Engineering or an equivalent level of professional qualification and experience. Additionally, a successful candidate should have passion for interdisciplinary projects beyond physics. Experience in super-resolution and single-molecule imaging is desired, however not a prerequisite. Ideally, the candidate has experience in thin film deposition and characterization. Basic skills in experimental and numerical modeling of nanophotonic systems are expected. A good command of English is mandatory as you will be working in an international team.  

Female scientists are particularly encouraged to apply. Disabled applicants will be preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualification.

Applications including cover letter, detailed CV, copies of certificates, and contact information of two referees, should be sent as a single pdf file (no more than 10 MB) via email to katrin.heinze@virchow.uni-wuerzburg.de until 1st of December 2019.
