Dear all,

Since its foundation in 2008, the Centre for Innovation Competence (ZIK) 
HALOmem at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg has devoted 
itself to the structural characterisation of membrane proteins together 
with analysis of the role played by the surrounding membrane.
HALOmem is expanding its expertise platform with the establishment of a 
new independent research group “Cryo-EM of membrane protein complexes”, 
working and collaborating within the stimulating multidisciplinary 
environment that has established Halle as an internationally recognised 
centre for pure and applied protein biochemistry, biotechnology and 

HALOmem and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) 
seek a highly motivated and out-standing junior scientist for the 
position of:
*Tenure Track Research Group Leader**
**“Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Membrane Protein Complexes”*

The successful candidate will establish a team to study membrane protein 
complexes using cryo-electron microscopy (single particle reconstruction 
and/or tomography). The applicant will have trained in cryo-EM of 
biological samples, with documented experience at postgraduate and 
postdoctoral level. The candidate will enjoy unrestricted access to the 
300 kV JEOL JEM-3200FSC (equipped with field emission gun, cryo-stage, 
in-line energy filter and GATAN K2 direct electron detector).
Ideally, the applicant should have experience in:
• Working in an international scientific environment
• Project coordination and leadership
• Obtaining third party funding
• Interacting within an interdisciplinary milieu

The group leader may be awarded the status of Junior Professor, in which 
case active participation in academic and administrative duties within 
the University is expected according to the Hochschulgesetz 
Sachsen-Anhalt (§ 34 HSG-LSA), with corresponding requirements for 
recruitment according to § 35 HSG-LSA. Junior Professorships are awarded 
initially for a period of three years, after which a further three years 
may be granted upon positive evaluation. In such a case, the position 
offers the possibility of subsequent tenure at the Martin Luther 
University, which may or may not be submitted for tender depending on 
the success of the group leader.

Applications should be addressed to both ZIK HALOmem and the Project 
Management Jülich
(representing the BMBF), arriving not later than 10.03.2017 (see
