Open Positions

Independent Kassel & Schwiete-Foundation Research Group Leader for pharmacological probe development and characterization at FIAS

The research group leader position is funded for up to five years by the Alfons und Gertrud Kassel-Stiftung and the Dr. Rolf M. Schwiete Stiftung. The salary grade is based on the requirements of the collective agreement (TV-L-H) applicable to FIAS. The research group will be integrated into the state funded CMMS LOEWE project  unifying more than 20 different PIs with the aim of developing Methods and Applications for Multiscale Modeling in Life Sciences. Further, the activities of the group will be integrated into our efforts in the pharmaco-medical research fields associated with the strategic aims of the Open Science Initiative “Structure-Genome-Consortium – SGC”.   

The focus of the research group is the development of novel approaches for probe development using AI methods and their application. FIAS is open to all types of strategies and forms of applications. An interaction with the biological questions of CMMS & SGC would be beneficial. Frankfurt has a Tier-2 supercomputer, which is available for processing of data and programs.

We are looking for a candidate with Ph.D. in science with experience in the field of simulation of complex systems. In particular, useful would be experience with the analysis of biological systems. A co-affiliation with the Goethe University or a Max-Planck-Institute is possible, but is subject to negotiation. 

The FIAS would like to promote women in science and therefore strongly encourages female scientists to apply. People with disabilities are given preferential consideration if they have the same aptitude. The return to work after parental leave is encouraged. Jobs are generally divisible if the tasks do not conflict with this.
