The Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine (IBMM; ) of the University of Bern in Switzerland invites applications for an assistant lecturer with tenure track or lecturer position.
Assistant Lecturer with Tenure Track (Assistenzdozentur mit Tenure Track) or Lecturer Position (Dozentur)
The IBMM is an interdisciplinary institute focusing on the function, structure and pharmacology of membrane proteins such as transporters, ion channels and membrane receptors.
Towards these research aims we combine biochemistry, chemical synthesis, chemical biology / analytics, electrophysiology, molecular biology and structural biology.
A strong emphasis is put on the roles of membrane proteins in human diseases. Both, human ex vivo and genetically-modified mouse models are applied to study membrane proteins in different diseases, e.
g., cancer, cardiac disorders, preeclampsia and neuropsychiatric disorders.
Research on membrane transporters is driven by the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) TransCure (www.nccr-transcure.
ch). The IBMM is the leading house of this NCCR.
The IBMM is aiming at expanding its research portfolio in a complementary way. We therefore are looking for candidates with strong expertise in organoid technology, transgenic mouse models or in silico studies to explore fundamental questions in biology and human diseases.
Candidates should have a visionary research plan and strong teaching interests.
Candidates must hold a PhD degree and must have demonstrated their excellence in their corresponding expertise.
Please submit your application by email to info ibmm.unibe.ch as a single PDF file including a short motivation letter, CV, list of publications and a two-page summary of past, current and future research.
Please also indicate three references. The deadline for receipt of applications is June 14, 2021 . The IBMM of the University of Bern is an equal opportunity employer and women are strongly encouraged to apply.
