Application Deadline: 15/03/2017
Postdoctoral and senior researchers with excellent scientific record in the following topics (but not limited to): Synthetic Biology, Computational Bioengineering, Diagnostic Technologies, Systems Biology, Neuroengineering, 3D Bioprinting, and Regenerative Medicine are invited to apply for a Junior Group Leader position in IBEC’s non-tenure-track open call for 2017.
Applicants are expected to develop an ambitious project for their future group and to contribute to one or more IBEC’s core applications areas. Candidates will be evaluated by IBEC’s International Scientific Committee (ISC) based on scientific quality, feasibility of the proposed scientific approach, potential impact of the research, added value to the current IBEC research programme and structure, and their ability to carry out efficient leadership and management.
Apart from outstanding scientific output, the candidates must prove that they are active in the application of competitive proposals as principal investigators. Any mobility experience, e.g. a stay in another country/region, will be considered as a valuable contribution.
Desirable competencies and skills: Leadership; critical judgment in identifying and executing research activities; strategic vision for the future of the research field; proven record in securing research funding/budgets/resources; team building/collaboration; excellent communication and networking.
Junior Group Leaders at IBEC are offered a start-up package and provided with suitable laboratory space, access to the state-of-the-art core facilities at IBEC and access to outstanding predoc students and postdoc researchers. They are assigned a project manager to support their participation in competitive calls and the management of their projects, as well as their interaction with IBEC’s friendly and researcher-oriented administrative staff.
The successful candidate will be appointed for an initial 4-year period. At the end of the fourth year, the Junior Group Leader will be evaluated by the ISC. A positive evaluation will allow the candidate to extend their appointment for another 4 years.
IBEC aims for a representative gender balance at all levels of staff, so we strongly encourage women to apply. At least 40% of shortlisted applicants invited to interview will be women.
