Associate or Full Professor of Human Biology

Updated: 2 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 14 Nov 2022

Are you an enthusiastic and highly motivated scientist studying human biology with a translational focus? Then the RIMLS-Science Institute of the Faculty of Science at Radboud University (Nijmegen, Netherlands), which is looking for an associate/full professor in Human Biology, may be the perfect place for you.

We are looking for a tenured faculty member in Human Biology at the associate or full professor level. As a new faculty member, you will enrich the current research, education and management activities of the RIMLS-Science Institute. We will invite you based on scientific excellence, potential impact, and complementarity to existing research lines. We broadly define the required area of expertise as follows:

RIMLS-Science sees opportunities for complementary molecular, cell biological and computational research focusing on human pathophysiology. These opportunities arise, for example, from recent technological developments in single cell DNA and RNA sequencing, which have revolutionised the 'omics' field by, inter alia, facilitating the identification of rare cell types and by disentangling cellular heterogeneity and cell-cell communication in health and disease. Predictions made from computational modelling can be interrogated using unbiased functional genomics screens and orthogonal sequencing and proteomics approaches. These technologies can either be applied to primary (patient-derived) cells or in advanced in vitro culture systems such as organoids to mechanistically address fundamental questions in human biology and pathophysiology. These approaches also hold great promise for translation to medical applications in disease modelling or cancer research. Other potential areas of interest include single molecule imaging, spatial transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering.

It is of great importance that you will establish links with other Science faculty and/or Radboud UMC departments. Scientific excellence should ensure ample external funding opportunities. You will be expected to contribute to the teaching activities of the institute up to a maximum of 40%, including the Human Biology Medical Biology specialisation and a Human Biology course in the Bachelor's degree programme in Biology.
