The European Neuroscience Institute in Göttingen (ENI-G) Germany announces
positions for

*Group Leaders in Neuroscience*

About us: The ENI-G, a partnership between the University Medical Center
Göttingen and the Max-Planck-Society, provides an exceptional environment
for excellent young researchers in the neurosciences.

We seek: Applicants with an outstanding record of research in either
neuroscience or with excitable cells in general. Possible topics range from
molecular and cellular physiology, neuronal circuit analysis, imaging (at
all scales), as well as computational and cognitive neuroscience, with
emphasis on health and disease. Currently there is a focus of the group
leaders of the ENI-G on physiology, sensory processing and systems
neuroscience in multiple species, ranging from invertebrates to humans.
Research that either complements or goes beyond these already established
focal points at the ENI-G is welcome.

We offer: Group leaders a maximal amount of independence while also
providing the support necessary to build up a new research program. ENI-G
will provide office and laboratory space as well as a generous start-up
package. State of the art equipment, including dedicated microscopy
infrastructure, animal facilities, a precision workshop, IT and
administrative support are available in house. In addition, unparalleled
opportunities for scientific collaboration and interaction exist within the
Göttingen Research Campus, including the University of Göttingen and its
Medical School, three Max Planck Institutes (Biophysical Chemistry,
Experimental Medicine, and Dynamics and Self Organization), the German
Primate Center and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience. We
will work closely with the recently established cluster of Excellence
"Multiscale Bioimaging: from Molecular Machines to Networks of Excitable
Cells (https://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/579892.html)" as well as the newly
starting Heart and Brain Center Göttingen. In addition to the excellent
research environment that ENI-G provides, its independent group leaders can
benefit from the resources and funding opportunities offered by the
Collaborative Research Centers (CRC / SFB) within the Göttingen
Neuroscience community. The ENI-G also houses the distinguished graduate
program ‘IMPRS Neurosciences’, facilitating interactions with excellent
students as well as opportunities for teaching.

You will have an experienced mentor by your side, receive broad
administrative support, professional leadership training, and help with
relocation and establishing a life in Germany, including visa application,
housing, schooling, and day-care. Successful group leaders will have the
opportunity to obtain a permanent position after a two step internal and
external evaluation.

We look forward to: Applications from outstanding researchers who are
enthusiastic about pursuing an independent research program in an
environment that supports cutting edge research. The successful candidate
is expected to develop a vigorous research program and should have received
a Ph.D. within the past five years. Relevant research training and
outstanding research reflected by high-impact publications are a
prerequisite for consideration. The applicant is expected to acquire
competitive third-party funding, and eligibility for ERC Starting Grant /
DFG Emmy Noether level funding (or comparable) is a requirement. Details
about funding opportunities can be found here
<http://www.eni-g.de/career/group-leader/funding-opportunities>. Interested
candidates should submit their curriculum vitae and record of publications
highlighting their 3-5 most significant publications, as well as a research
statement (3-5 pages), preferably in one pdf. Application deadline:
17.3.2019. The University Medical Center Göttingen is a tertiary care
center. Its 7,400 employees work in over 65 departments and facilities to
provide top-quality patient care, excellent research and modern teaching
facilities. UMG is an equal opportunity employer and strictly prohibits
unlawful discrimination.
