  • Professorship @ Charite in Berlin: Engineering Basis ofRegeneration

    The DFG Graduate School GSC 203
    “Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies”
    invites applications for the following position:

    University Professorship
    “Engineering Basis of Regeneration”
    Salary Group W2 BBesG

    The BSRT seeks to fill this position with an outstanding,
    internationally recognised scientist preferably with a
    track record in teaching. This chair should link the pure
    scientist’s perspective on regeneration with the
    translational aspects of regeneration as driven by
    clinical needs. Candidates are expected to have a track
    record in research and proven success in obtaining
    third-party funding. Preferably, the focus will be
    placed on teaching the engineering aspects of the
    field of regenerative medicine in a multidisciplinary
    environment. PhD students will be from a biological,
    bio-technological, material science, veterinary or
    medical environment. In addition, in depth education
    within the domains of engineering, physic and chemistry
    will need to be elaborated by the candidate for
    specialised PhD students in these domains. It is
    expected that the candidate is interested in at
    least one of the medical fields of the BCRT.
    Future participation in an associated Collaborative
    Research Centre such as e.g, the SFB 760 is encouraged.

    Further details regarding the school, the research
    center or the collaborative research activities may
    be obtained from

    Prof. Georg Duda
    (+49 30 450 559079 or

    The initial appointment is for five years with the
    possibility of further extension following a successful
    evaluation. Successful candidates will conduct visionary
    independent research, obtain external funding and engage
    in collaborative projects with groups at the BCRT, the
    CHARITÉ, the MDC, the GKSS and with cooperating partners
    of Berlin’s universities and other research foundations.

    Candidates should be committed to teaching and be able to
    demonstrate strong didactic qualities and an interest in
    innovative teaching methods.
    Qualifications: Junior Professorship, postdoctoral thesis
    (Habilitation) or equivalent scientific achievement and
    teaching qualifications.

    The CHARITÉ is an equal opportunity employer committed
    to excellence through diversity. As women are under-
    represented in scientific work, we particularly encourage
    women to submit their application.

    Written applications in accordance with the format
    specified on the Internet-link
    should be submitted by 10.04.2008 to

    Prof. Dr. Martin Paul, Dean
    Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, 10098 Berlin

    The CHARITÉ is the medical school of the Humboldt-Universität
    zu Berlin and the Freie Universität Berlin. For further

    The recently established Berlin-Brandenburg School for
    Regenerative Therapies is a facility of the
    Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and is closely
    linked to the BMBF/Helmholtz-Association funded Translation
    Center Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies.
    The highly interactive research program of the center
    comprises work in four medical research fields (musculoskeletal,
    immunological, cardiovascular and nervous system), each of
    which is linked to the overlapping platforms of basic
    research, bioengineering, and translational research. With
    the establishment of a total of more than 20 new research
    groups, the school, together with the center, focuses on the
    development and clinical translation of novel therapies and
    products in the field of regenerative medicine. Based on the
    collaboration of a range of partner research institutions and,
    with the support of the regional development agencies and local
    industry partners, the Berlin-Brandenburg region offers optimal
    conditions for the education of young scientists eager to develop
    and successfully transfer research findings into clinical
