IPK Gatersleben, a member of the Leibniz Association, is a large internationally leading centre of fundamental and application-oriented plant research. It currently hosts 31 research groups with ~500 employees that use cutting-edge plant cultivation and phenotyping facilities, comprehensive top-level analytical platforms, and powerful IT-infrastructures and bioinformatics resources to gain novel insights regarding Genome Diversity, Evolution and Dynamics, Plant Performance and Adaptation, and Resources and Approaches for Crop Plant Improvement. A central goal is to promote the knowledge-based use of plant-genetic resources to enhance agricultural productivity and sustainability.
We seek talented, dynamic, and motivated scientists prepared to start their own independent careers. To this end, we are organising a two-day event for female scientists in May 2020 in order to find suitable candidates. The framework programme of the event includes presentations of potential third-party donors, whose representatives will be available at information stands for individual advice. In addition, lectures on career planning for women and experience reports of junior research group leaders are planned. The IPK covers the costs related to the event (travel and accommodation). The IPK is aware that women’s scientific careers often stagnate after PhD graduation despite scientific excellence. Due to this clear underrepresentation of women at this level, we would like to address women specifically with this format and encourage them to establish Independent Research Groups.
If you need further information, please feel free to contact Gwendolin Schneider: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For us, your qualifications and strengths count. Therefore, everyone – independent from gender, origin, age, or possible disability – is welcome. The IPK is striving to increase the proportion of women in sectors where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages qualified women to apply. As an institution which has been awarded the Certificate for Career and Family (“berufundfamilie”), we offer family-friendly working conditions and flexible working hours. The IPK has set a goal to employ more people with disabilities. Qualified applicants with a disability will be given preference.
We are looking forward to receive your complete application as one single pdf-document until 02.02.2020 via online-application (http://www.ipk-gatersleben.de/en/job-offers/). If you have questions or require more information, please do contact Ms. Stefanie Dressler (email@example.com). Please indicate the reference number 62/12/19 in your correspondence. Please note that incomplete application documents cannot be considered.
