Junior Group Leader Position in Neuroimaging
The call is embedded in an ambitious recruitment effort aimed at complementing interdiscplinary research in the Munich Cluster for Systems Neurology (SyNergy) funded by the German Excellence Strategy. The position will be located at the Institute for Stroke and Dementia Research (www.isd-research.de). The position initially is for 5 years, but can be extended subject to positive evaluation.
We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in human MR imaging of stroke and dementia. A track record in biomarker discovery, integration of MR imaging with other imaging modalities and omics data, risk prediction, and interventional studies will be a plus, but outstanding candidates working in all fields of neuroimaging including experimental imaging using light sheet microscopy, 2- and 3-photon imaging, STED, and SCAPE are encouraged to apply.
Prerequisites for this position include a doctoral degree preferably within the last 2 to 6 years. The successful candidate is expected to have an excellent record of innovative research and academic performance as well as high potential for establishing a rigorous and independent research program. International research exposure is a plus. Applications of women are explicitly encouraged.
The position is equipped with an attractive package and offers direct access to patients, animal facilities, and technology platforms in the Center for Stroke and Dementia research building, which hosts the Institute for Stroke and Dementia Research (ISD) and the Munich site of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE). Specifically, the ISD hosts an inpatient clinic for stroke and dementia, dedicated human MR research scanner, microMRI/PET, light-sheet microscopes, and 2- and 3-photon microscopes amongst other equipment.
The ISD and the SyNergy cluster strive to provide newly appointed research group leaders with various types of support. The appointment is made at the LMU University Hospital (LMU Klinikum). LMU Klinikum is an equal opportunity employer. LMU Klinikum and the University continue to be very successful in increasing the number of female faculty members and strongly encourage applications from female candidates.
