We are seeking for an internationally recognized scientist working in the field of macromolecular chemistry and macromolecular materials, e.g. the synthesis of biobased or biocompatible polymers, biohybrid materials and the control and analysis of molecular interactions for functional use in chemistry, biology and medicine. Together with the chair of “Chemical Technology for Material Synthesis” and the chair of “Functional Materials in Medicine and Dentistry” the chair will also be one of the three directors of the newly-founded “Institute for Functional Materials and Biofabrication IFB”. A willingness to take an active role in ongoing and planned collaborative projects within the faculty, with the University Hospital and external research centers such as the “Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC” and the “German Plastics Center SKZ” is required.
We will consider candidates with an impactful research portfolio, as evidenced by an outstanding funding and publication record. The successful candidate will contribute to the teaching of macromolecular chemistry (Bachelor and Master degree programs). The University of Würzburg attaches great importance to excellence in the supervision of students and doctoral candidates and expects high levels of engagement from teaching staff.
