The Faculty of Technology at Bielefeld University, Germany, working in cooperation with the Leibniz-Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften (ISAS) would like to appoint a


W1 professor with tenure track to W2 for multi-dimensional omics analysis


to start at the earliest possible opportunity.


On appointment as a university professor, the successful applicant is to be granted leave in order to take on the professional duties of a leader of the working group "Data analysis and visualisation" at the Leibniz-Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften – ISAS – e.V. in Dortmund, Germany (so-called "Jülich model").

To fill this role, we are looking for an outstanding young academic whose main area of research within the context of multi-dimensional omics analysis addresses topics such as the algorithms of data analysis, visualisation or effects analysis. The holder of the position will represent their focal area in both research and in teaching. They will cooperate with the Bioinformatics working group in the Faculty of Technology and will set up a working group at ISAS in Dortmund. The goal of ISAS is to develop analytical procedures, methods and instruments for precision medicine tailored to the needs of the patient in order to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, thereby making a significant contribution towards meeting the challenges facing society in the fields of medicine and healthcare. To achieve this, ISAS develops efficient measurement strategies and interlinks these with analytical methods on the basis of an integrative multi-method concept for the application in biomedicine and medical research. There are opportunities at Bielefeld University for interdisciplinary and cross-faculty collaboration with establishments such as the Centre for Biotechnology (CeBiTec) and the Bielefeld Institute for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (BIBI).

In line with the "Jülich model", the leave of absence to work at ISAS also involves a teaching commitment of 4 courses. During the junior professor phase, there is an expectation that competitive third-party funds will be procured.


In accordance with Section 36 of the Higher Education Act for North Rhine-Westphalia (HG NRW), the prerequisites for the appointment are a completed university degree and PhD in a relevant field (preferably Informatics), as well as pedagogical aptitude.

Applications from suitable persons with a serious disability and disabled persons of equal ability are expressly encouraged.
