The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology invites applications for a
Max Planck Research Group Leader (m/f/div) in mass spectrometry-based proteomics or biomedical mass spectrometry
An exciting and competitive Max Planck Research Group Leader position is available immediately at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Physiology in Dortmund, Germany. This is a unique opportunity to become part of a world-renowned research institute with a diverse faculty with backgrounds in chemistry, biology and physics, and to perform interdisciplinary science in a lively and supportive environment!
We are seeking a highly motivated, self-driven and creative thinker who is prepared to take risks in defining and addressing important scientific problems. The successful candidate will develop an independent research program using their own budget, which will fund research positions, consumables, and equipment.
