Group Leader - Cell Biology and Biophysics (m/f/d)

You will lead a research group to pursue highly ambitious and original research goals. The future group leader will be embedded in the multidisciplinary and collaborative environment of EMBL, which provides many opportunities for interaction with other research groups.

The successful candidate should have a concise research plan with clearly outlined highly original and ambitious research goals. A PhD degree in natural sciences is required, with an interest in the wider field of Cell Biology and Biophysics. Applicants with a degree in (bio)informatics/mathematics, engineering, chemistry, physics and a keen interest in cell biological applications of their discipline are especially encouraged to apply.

We are seeking to recruit two highly motivated group leaders who wish to carry out cutting-edge molecular cell biology research or imaging technology development. In the area of cell biology, we would for example welcome applications that plan to work in unusual, including marine, model systems, or that take a theoretical approach to model dynamic cell biological processes. In the area of imaging technology, we would for example welcome applications that develop novel microscopy technologies to probe the molecular or physical structure and function of cells.
