Friedrich Alexander University of Erlangen Nuremberg, Faculty of Medicine

The Faculty of Medicine at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) invites applications for a


Tenure Track Professorship for Translational Orthodontics

(W2 / Associate Professor)


at the Department of Orthodontics. The professorship is to be filled by the earliest possible starting date for an initial period of six years. FAU offers a long-term perspective of a permanent appointment to a W2 professorship if the requirements of the tenure evaluation are met.


We seek to appoint an expert who will develop an internationally visible research and teaching profile at the Department of Orthodontics. The successful candidate will also be responsible for expanding and encouraging links between the various research priorities in the field of orthodontics, in particular 3D imaging and/or osteo-immunological processes in relation to orthodontic treatment.


We are looking for an expert who has made a name for him or herself internationally, documented with excellent publications and proven success in acquiring third-party funding. The successful candidate is expected to collaborate closely with the other Departments at Universitätsklinikum, the Institutes of the Faculty of Medicine and institutes at the other Faculties, as well as take part in research networks such as DFG collaborative research centres and interdisciplinary centres. The Faculty of Medicine offers degree programmes in medicine, dentistry, molecular medicine, medical process management and logopaedics. Ideally, applicants should have experience in patient care.


Successful candidates demonstrate excellent academic achievements in research and teaching at the highest international standards. You have substantial research experience as well as experience in managing research projects and in raising third-party funding. A university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as a passion for education and pertinent teaching experience are prerequisites. Candidates who are able and willing to teach in German are desired. The position also requires additional postdoctoral qualifications. These should be in the form of a habilitation (postdoctoral thesis) or equivalent academic qualifications. You may also have acquired the necessary qualifications in a non-university context or through a junior faculty position (for example as W1 Professor or Assistant Professor). Ideally, candidates should have a license to practice dental medicine and have qualified as an orthodontic specialist.


FAU expects applicants to become actively involved in administering academic affairs and in developing strategic initiatives. FAU pursues a policy of intense student mentoring and therefore expects its teaching staff to be present during lecture periods.


FAU offers an outstandingly productive research environment as well as a passionate and multi-disciplinary scholarly community within a vibrant institutional network.


In its pursuit of academic excellence, FAU is committed to equality of opportunity and to a proactive and inclusive approach, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture and values diversity. FAU is a family-friendly employer and is also responsive to the needs of dual career couples.


Please submit your complete application documents (CV, list of publications, list of lectures and courses taught, list of any operations, copies of certificates and degrees, list of third-party funding) online at https://berufungen.fau.de by 08.09.2019, addressed to the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine.
