Assistant Professor (W1) of Soil Microbial Interactions

Published 2023-09-15

The Department of Geosciences of the Faculty of Science at Tübingen University invites applications for the position of

Assistant Professor (W1) of Soil Microbial Interactions

The position is due to commence on 01.04.2024.

The position is initially limited to four years, with the possibility of extension by a further two years in case of a positive interim evaluation. Detailed information on the criteria underlying the interim and final evaluations may be found in our guidelines for review under the following link: https://uni-tuebingen.de/en/247915

The successful candidate will be responsible for the microbial ecology but also general biology curriculum. Specifically, it is expected that the candidate extends the portfolio of lab courses in the field of microbial ecology. The position has a teaching load of four hours per week prior to interim evaluation and six hours thereafter. Independent research activities in microbial ecology and environmental virology, specifically the impact of viruses on biogeochemical cycles, are expected. In the course of the contract, the W1 professor is expected to attain the research and teaching achievements that will qualify him or her for an appointment as a tenured professor at any university or equivalent institution (Habilitation). Those who have completed a habilitation will be excluded.

Required qualifications include an approved Emmy Noether Group, an outstanding doctoral thesis, internationally visible publications in leading peer-reviewed journals, and a record of teaching/supervision aptitude.

The University of Tübingen is committed to equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion. Female scientists, in particular, are explicitly invited to apply, as are applicants from outside Germany. Applications from equally qualified candidates with disabilities will be given preference.
