Professorship (W2) for basic mechanisms of stem cell biology in cardiology

The successful candidate should cover the full spectrum of molecular cardiology with special emphasis on translational research.

Prerequisites for the application are a university degree, teaching ability, doctorate, scientific achievements such as habilitation or comparable scientific achievements at a non-university institution. Goethe-University is committed to increasing the proportion of female scientific staff and therefore particularly encourages women to apply. The designated salary for the position is based on “W2” of the German university scale or equivalent.

Scientists with proven exceptional research and teaching accomplishments are invited to submit their applications according to the guidelines of the Faculty of Medicine at Goethe-University within 6 weeks after publication of this advertisement to the Dean of the Medical Faculty, Goethe-University, Theodor-Stern-Kai 7, 60590 Frankfurt a.
