Position Overview

Professorship (payment category W3) for Adenine Nucleotide Signaling - Research

Center for Experimental Medicine – Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Cell Biology

Tenure track position reference code FK03-224/3 for 5 years according to § 16 Abs. 2 Nr. 4 HmbHG. To be filled from July 01, 2019 on. Tenure possible after positive evaluation.

The Professorship for Adenine Nucleotide Signaling should considerably strengthen research and academic education in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Cell Biology. Moreover, the new professor is considered a major research player in the newly founded Collaborative Research Center (Sonder­forschungsbereich) 1328 „Adenine Nucleotides in Immunity and Inflammation“. Collaborative Research Center (Sonderforschungsbereich) 1328 is dedicated to decipher the roles of adenine nucleotides as essential and ubiquitous signal molecules for cell-cell interaction or as intracellular second messengers. Collaborative Research Centers may be funded up to 12 years by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

We offer:

•  To perform research and academic teaching in biochemistry and molecular cell biology.

•  To establish a research group dedicated to adenine nucleotide signaling, preferably in the context of immunology and/or inflammation. 

•  To integrate the newly established research group into Collaborative Research Center 1328.

You can expect:

•  The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Cell Biology with its research groups „Calcium
Signaling” (head Professor Guse) and „Immunometabolism“ (head Professor Heeren) belongs to the  largest bio-medical departments within the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf. We offer a research-oriented environment with state-of-the-art instrumentation for world class research in biochemistry and molecular cell biology.

•  Within Collaborative Research Center (Sonderforschungsbereich) 1328 „Adenine Nucleotides in
Immunity and Inflammation“ that started work on July 01, 2018, we offer a multitude of collaborative
possibilities, either with basic biomedical subjects such as biochemistry or immunology, or with
clinical collaboration partners.

•  In 2022 the Department will move to a brand-new laboratory building.

Teaching obligations

•  9 hours teaching per week during two terms of 14 weeks/year, according to § 10 LVVO. Reduction of teaching obligation is possible according to §§ 15 ff. LVVO.



Requirements for employment

•  In general, as stated in § 15 Hamburgisches Hochschulgesetz dated July 18, 2001, and according to the latest version 

•  Certificate of „Habilitation“ for a bio-molecular subject or equivalent scientific achievement, both in research and teaching.

•  Internationally recognized research achievements in cell signaling, with special emphasis on adenine nucleotide signaling

•  In-depth experience in at least one of the following research areas: analysis of ion channels, enzymes, receptors or transporters involved in adenine nucleotide signaling; High resolution/super resolution live cell imaging; HPLC/HPLC-MS of adenine nucleotides.

•  Experience in acquiring and managing extramurally funded projects

•  Cooperation and leading skills as well as engagement within academic self-administration

We look forward to receiving your full application with the reference code FK03-224/3 including a
concept of gender equality by the April 1st 2019.

We offer a work environment that offers everyone the same chances, regardless of age, sex, sexual
preference, disability, ethnic background or religion. We are actively trying to increase the number of
women in senior roles, especially in research and teaching. In the event of equal levels of qualification, preference will be given to female candidates. The same rule will apply to all genders when one gender is deemed to be under represented in the department relevant to the available position. Severely disabled applicants with essentially identical technical and personal suitability will be preferentially selected.

Please sent us your application containing CV, a structured list of your publications, a research concept, a teaching concept related to Hamburg as well as evidence of acquired third-party funds. Please send these documents using the reference code FK03-224/3  per E-Mail at (pdf) and as a paper version at Dekan der Medizinischen Fakultät der Universität Hamburg, Fakultätsservice -SV-,
Martinistraße 52, 20246 Hamburg.
