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 Trauma Immunology

(W2 / Associate Professor)


at the Department of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery. 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. Successful candidates demonstrate excellent academic achievements in research and teaching at the highest international standards with a focus on one or several areas of the pathophysiology of congenital or acquired immune response after trauma. In particular, fundamental research and relevant expertise in post-traumatic immune regulation is required.


The successful candidate is expected to represent and further develop the area of research both in experimental and translational fields. We also expect the professor to contribute to the research areas of infectiology and immunology at the Faculty of Medicine.


Successful candidates demonstrate excellent academic achievements in research and teaching at the highest international standards. You have substantial research experience abroad 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).


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.
