We seek a candidate with an internationally recognized track record in publication and successful grant acquisitions. The professorship should pursue basic experimental research in hearing. Experimental and computational approaches should be integrated. The use of state-of-the-art methods for controlling or modifying neural activity, and the study of neuronal populations, are of advantage.
Close cooperation within our existing research centres and interdisciplinary research programmes, such as the Research Centre Neurosensory Sciences and the Cluster of Excellence Hearing4all is expected.
The professorship will contribute to the teaching of biology and neuroscience, and related programmes. This includes teaching of statistics and programming skills. Teaching is expected at both undergraduate and graduate levels, in Bachelor-, Master- and PhD programmes. Teaching is in both English and German. Basic courses must be taught in German language within a reasonable period of time.
