Two Group Leader positions in Aarhus/Denmark within Molecular and Translational Neuroscience

Two group leader positions are available at the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine at the Danish Research Institute of Translational Neuroscience – DANDRITE https://dandrite.au.dk/ hosted by Aarhus University.

We seek two group leaders in neuroscience to establish independent research programs that exploit and complement the expertise and research programs of current groups (see https://dandrite.au.dk/people/group-leaders/). Group leaders are expected to introduce novel topics and tools, and strengthen synergies of on-going DANDRITE, AU and the EMBL neuroscience network, and build a program at international level that can support also collaborations of interdisciplinary and translational neuroscience.

The group leader position follows the EMBL model with a 5-year appointment and the possibility for a 4-year extension for a total of 9 years depending on a review concluding in the fourth year. Candidates are offered a competitive start package of EUR 1.6M for the first five years.

Group leaders are offered state-of-the-art laboratory facilities embedded in existing research infrastructures for neuroscience at all levels ranging from structure and function of molecules to advanced imaging, electrophysiology and functional/behavioral studies in transgenic models including for example induced pluripotent stem cells, brain organoids, fruit fly, zebrafish, mouse, and rat. Research at Aarhus University is in close proximity to clinical research at the Aarhus University Hospital (number one in Denmark and top-ranked worldwide), and biotech support facilities are available.
