Professor (W3) of Physical Chemistry (Magnetic Resonance with focus on Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy)

Goethe University Frankfurt am Main invites applications for the above position at the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry within the Faculty of Biochemistry, Chemistry and Pharmacy. This civil servant or public employee position will be filled at the earliest opportunity.

We seek to appoint an internationally outstanding researcher in the field of magnetic resonance with focus on EPR spectroscopy and/or diverse hyperpolarization techniques, who is expected to represent and develop these methods within a broad scope. The candidate should have a proven track record in method development (theory and experiment) and a well-defined profile in a relevant application area in chemistry, biochemistry or physics, with preference for the (bio)molecular sciences. Various joint initiatives are open for participation within the profile areas of Goethe University, i.e., “Structure and Dynamics of Life” and “Time, Space, Matter”. Notably, the candidate is encouraged to establish collaborations within the SFB 1507 “Membrane-Associated Protein Assemblies, Machineries, and Supercomplexes”, the Cluster of Excellence project “SCALE – Subcellular Architectures of Life”, or other ongoing initiatives. The professorship is associated with the renowned Center for Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (BMRZ) of Goethe University and is meant to represent its third methodological pillar, besides solution-phase and solid-state NMR spectroscopy. Possible cross-linkages result from joint application projects, e.g., in the fields of hyperfine spectroscopy or hyperpolarization, which are to be further developed.

The position holder will be involved in teaching (lectures, seminars and practical courses) in the Bachelor and Master program in Chemistry and should represent the subject Physical Chemistry within its full scope.

The formal hiring requirements are defined in sections 67 and 68 of the Hessian Higher Education Act (Hessisches Hochschulgesetz).

Goethe University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to diversity and inclusion. In particular, we are welcoming applications by qualified women and people with a migrant background. At Goethe University, a special emphasis is placed on creating and sustaining a family-friendly work and research environment. Where applicants are otherwise equally qualified, preference is given to candidates with disabilities or equivalent. The same applies to women in fields in which they are under-represented.
