The Professorship

The professorship is intended to strengthen the current research on biomolecular and supramolecular chemistry at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and the Center for Nanosystems Chemistry in the areas of synthetic, mechanistic, biomolecular and supramolecular chemistry. The ideal candidate is a visible early career molecular scientist, who is active in an emerging area of Organic Chemistry or Chemical Biology, has demonstrated interdisciplinary expertise, and proven ability to attract competitive external research funding. Active participation in ongoing and planned collaborative projects within the faculty is expected. Possible future research directions include but are not limited to the design, synthesis and functional analysis of biomolecular and/or supramolecular systems and processes, emerging topics and innovative methods in biological chemistry and organic functional materials based on natural or bioinspired artificial building blocks.  

The responsibilities include research and teaching as well as the promotion of early-career scientists. The successful candidate will contribute to teaching of organic chemistry in bachelor and master degree programs (including state examinations), as well as medicine and food chemistry study programs. The University of Würzburg puts emphasis on the excellent supervision of students and doctoral candidates, and expects high levels of engagement from teaching staff. 


Candidates are expected to have a relevant university degree, high pedagogical aptitude, a demonstrated ability for scientific research as usually proven by an excellent Doctoral degree, in addition to a Habilitation or proof of equivalent scientific achievements and independence in the field of structural organic chemistry (e.g. through a successful Junior or Assistant Professorship or equivalent performance in a non-university setting). According to Article 10 paragraph 3 of the Bavarian University Personnel Act, an appointment to civil service can only be made to a candidate under the age of 52. However, exceptions are possible in urgent cases.
The University of Würzburg aims to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and therefore strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female academics. Severely disabled applicants will be given preference in the case of equivalent qualifications.
