The Gregor Mendel Institute (GMI) is recruiting a Senior Group Leader. The appointment is for 5 years, renewable indefinitely. The position is similar to Associate or Full Professor, but has no teaching obligations, and comes with a substantial annual research budget as well as access to state-of-the-art facilities. It thus provides an opportunity to carry out curiosity-driven research unhindered by the limitations of funding agencies.
The goal of the GMI is to advance basic research that can be related to plant biology. We welcome all applications from broad and diverse fields of research. Our main criterion is scientific excellence, and questions with the potential to change how we view or interact with the world.
