The faculty is looking for a broad research area on metabolism and its effects in a joint appointment procedure with the Leibniz Institute for Aging Research - Fritz-Lipmann-Institut (FLI) - an international researcher Molecular damage and the aging of the organism. The candidate should have a strong scientific background in the biochemical, metabolic, and molecular study of model organisms and use them to analyze complex biological processes relevant to aging. The professorship is linked to the management of a research group at the FLI. The FLI provides an excellent academic environment for aging research as well as excellent laboratory facilities and core facilities. Candidates should be credited with outstanding publications and the proven ability to attract third-party funding. Experience in project coordination is welcome. Research on aging is one of the four research foci in the FSU's profi- tal line of life. The cooperation in the Center for Aging Research Jena of the FSU is expected. Collaboration in coordinated research programs involving groups of the university as well as from non-university institutions in the areas of regeneration, immunology or host-microbial interactions within aging is desirable. Teaching in the B.Sc. course "Biochemistry / Molecular Biology" and M.Sc. Course "Biochemistry" at the FSU Jena is expected to be 6 hours per week.



The Friedrich Schiller University is striving to increase the proportion of female researchers in research and teaching. Applications from female scientists are therefore expressly welcomed. People with disabilities are given preference if they have the same suitability.



Prerequisites for admission are the habilitation or comparable academic achievements. Active third-party advertising is expected. In the case of a first appointment to a professorship, the employment relationship is initially limited in principle; Exceptions to this rule are possible (§ 79 para. 2 ThürHG).
