Universität Regensburg

The Faculty of Medicine invites applications for a

Professorship of Hepatobiliary Immunology (grade W 3).

The position provides the legal status of civil servant (Beamtenverhältnis) for life and is to be filled as soon as possible.

The professor should strengthen the faculty in the area immunomedicine. We expect this to also strengthen the faculty's focal points in tumor research and transplantation medicine. In particular, the professor should research the role of immuno­logical processes in the liver, for example in relation to organ transplantation, inflammation of the liver and / or bile ducts, tumors and / or regenerative processes.

We are looking for a person of any gender who has shown excellence in hepatobiliary immunology research, has great willingness to cooperate with other disciplines in regional, national and international networks, and has a significant interest in translational aspects. In the future, the professor should integrate their work with that of other professorships, which have not yet been filled, creating an innovative interdisciplinary department for immunomedical research. The conditions provided by the Faculty of Medicine and Universität Regensburg to do this are attractive: including existing connections to immunology research areas, and the non-university research institutions, the Leibniz Institute for Immunotherapy (LIT) and the Fraunhofer group for personalized tumor therapy. Involvement in medical, biomedical or scientific teaching is expected.

Prerequisites for taking up the position are, alongside the general conditions from public sector employment law, a completed university degree, pedagogic suitability, particular aptitude for academic work, generally shown by a doctoral degree, and further academic performance shown via a habilitation or equivalent which may have been performed outside higher educational institutions or as part of the duties of a junior professor.

Universität Regensburg is particularly committed to reconciling family and working life (for more information, see www.uni-regensburg.de/familienservice). To fulfill the equality directive and increase the number of female professors, we explicitly encourage applications from qualified women.

In case of essentially similar suitability, applicants with severe disabilities are given preferential consideration.

The prerequisites for appointment under civil servant law are based on the provisions of the Bavarian Public Service Code (BayBG) and the Bavarian University Staff Act (BayHSchPG). Please note the age limit specified in Art. 10 Para. 3 BayHSchPG.

Applications containing the normal documents (resume, certificates, list of publications with copies of the most important papers) should be submitted (preferably electronically)

by 31 October 2022

to the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine of Universität Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauß-Allee 11, 93053 Regensburg. Please send your application in writing or by email to berufungen.medizin@ur.de.
