Professorship (W3) in Structural Biology of Infectious Processes
Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (CAU)
Kiel University and DESY intend to attract more qualified women for
The Centre for Structural Systems Biology (CSSB) has been established
at the campus of Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg
(Germany) as an interdisciplinary research centre with partners from
universities and non-university institutions. CSSB addresses challenges
in molecular infection biology by structural biology methods.
DESY, a research center of the Helmholtz Association, is one of the
world‘s leading centres for research with photons as well as particle,
astroparticle and accelerator physics. The brilliant synchrotron radiation
source PETRA III, the free-electron laser FLASH and the X-ray lasers
at the European XFEL GmbH offer a wide range of research possibilities,
ranging from life sciences to the various fields of fundamental studies.
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Kiel University,
in association with DESY, invite applications for the following joint
position to be filled as soon as possible:
