The Department of Preclinical Imaging and Radiopharmacy (Director Prof. Bernd Pichler) at the University Hospital of the Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen competes on scientific top level in preclinical imaging with international research groups. Therefore we are looking for a top motivated and research minded colleague. We are enlarging our team and are offering a position as a

Group leader (Postdoc)
Inflammation / Infection (f/m)

The Department of Preclinical Imaging and Radiopharmacy is a powerful research oriented group focusing on new tracers and biomarkers as well as in vivo biomedical research utilizing novel imaging and molecular biology technologies. We are an interdisciplinary team of ~65 researchers and technical employees with various backgrounds such as medicine, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, physics and mathematics. We maintain many collaborations with basic researchers and clinical colleagues at our university hospital, the science faculty of the University of Tübingen as well as with many scientific partners worldwide.

The successful candidate will be embedded in a very stimulating and interdisciplinary field of research, a well-equipped molecular biology and imaging laboratory with technical support by experienced technicians. We are looking for an outstanding postdoctoral researcher who is strongly interested to work independently on new projects. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in the field of inflammation and / or infection and holds a Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) in medicine, biology, biochemistry or a related field. Solid experience with mouse models and / or cell and molecular biology techniques is essential. Experience in imaging is not mandatory, but we expect that the successful candidate is willing to widen its scope towards imaging science. Excellent communication skills in English are an absolute requirement. The candidate has strong writing skills with a proven track record of successful research and publications and has experience in writing grants and funding applications. We seek a team player who is used to supervise students, who is rigorous and able to independently perform research, but also shares our division’s spirit of collaboration, both in preclinical research and the clinical translation.

This position is initially limited to three years with plans for a further extension.
