Vacancy: tenure-track assistant professor in Tissue Assembly, Physiology, and Engineering
The Biozentrum of the University of Basel in Switzerland invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor in Tissue Assembly, Physiology, and Engineering.
This position is supported by the Biozentrum (https://www.biozentrum.unibas.ch/) and the National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) “AntiResist: New Approaches to Combat Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria” (2020-2032; https://nccr-antiresist.ch/). The Biozentrum is one of the leading Life Sciences Institutes in the world. It investigates how molecules and cells create life, spanning the scale from atom to organism. The NCCR “AntiResist”, whose home institution is the University of Basel, is a Swiss-wide interdisciplinary center for infection biology and antibiotic research. The mission of NCCR AntiResist is to bring about a paradigm shift in antibiotic research by first elucidating pathogen physiology in infected patients and then developing in-vitro models that faithfully mimic conditions in the patient. Our vision is to recruit an imaginative and creative individual who will both strengthen the leadership of the Biozentrum in the field of cell, tissue and developmental biology and add central competences in microtissue and organoid biology and engineering to the team of NCCR AntiResist.
This position is a fantastic opportunity for an early career scientist to develop an innovative research project. S/he will have the opportunity to work with basic and applied researchers benefiting from the collaborative and interdisciplinary environment that the Biozentrum and the NCCR team have to offer. Within the NCCR team, this new faculty member will collaborate with other research institutions across Switzerland, and will therefore be in a unique position to intensify and foster inter-facultative collaborations between the Biozentrum and the broader Life Sciences community of Switzerland.
