The University of Tübingen and the University of Stuttgart are seeking an

Independent Research Group Leader (m/f/d)
for “Tailor-Made Stimuli-Responsive Polymer Materials for Pharmaceutical Applications”

at the earliest opportunity.

Within the Excellence Strategy of the University of Tübingen and a collaborative effort between the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen, we are seeking a young, highly motivated and emerging researcher, who will take the lead in building up a new group and a competitive research program in the area of Polymers for Pharmaceutical Applications.

The focus of the group should be on synthesis of novel stimuli-responsive polymer materials with tailor-made architectures for pharmaceutical applications. The polymers should be suitable for 2D and/or 3D printing of topical and/or peroral dosage forms. The goal is to develop new polymers that enable controlled drug release upon a stimulus such as pH, temperature, humidity, electric fields.

The scientific background of the young research group leader should be on polymer synthesis with a strong affinity to polymer technology and pharmaceutical / medical appli­cations. The ideal candidate should have an excellent international early-career track record with interdisciplinary collaborations and successful third-party funding.

The Young Research Group Leader Position is located both at the University of Stuttgart and at the University of Tübingen: The funding includes a group leader position (TV-L E14), as well as one E13 and one 0.65 E13 position as well as running budgets. The duration of the appointment is linked to the funding period of the Excellence Strategy at the University of Tübingen (until 31/10/2025). The group will be embedded into the Chair of Structure and Properties of the Institute of Polymer Chemistry (IPOC) at the University of Stuttgart and the Pharmaceutical Technology at the University of Tübingen, and will benefit from both support structures. Interested candidates may contact Prof. Dr. D. Lunter (dominique.lunterspam prevention@uni-tuebingen.de) or Prof. Dr. S. Ludwigs (sabine.ludwigsspam prevention@ipoc.uni-stuttgart.de) for further information.

Applications should contain a description of past and future research activities (up to three pages), a CV and publication list, and three reference letters submitted directly by the referees. Applications should be submitted in English and sent as a single file to infospam prevention@ipoc.uni-stuttgart.de. The closing date for applications is 11.11.2020.

The University of Stuttgart and the University of Tübingen are equal opportunity employers and strive for gender diversity. We welcome applications from all backgrounds. We are committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in our workforce and therefore encourage applications from such qualified individuals. The University of Tübingen is striving to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and is therefore asking qualified female scientists to apply.
