Tenure Track Group Leader Position in Functional Population Genetics

at the Institute of Population Genetics (Vetmeduni Vienna)


We are searching for a dynamic and enthusiastic scientist with an excellent track record and preferably with proven ability to attract extramural funding. Candidates should have a keen interest to build a research group focusing on the functional analyses of natural variation in Drosophila.

 The position is associated with the Institute of Population Genetics at the Vetmeduni Vienna (http://i122server.vu-wien.ac.at/pop/). The successful candidate will have priority access to a state of the art core facility (including an Illumina sequencer) and well-equipped laboratory space. The Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics (http://www.popgen-vienna.at) attracts an international body of graduate students and will be open to the new faculty member. 

 In recent years Vienna has developed into one of the leading centers in population genetics and evolutionary biology (http://www.evolvienna.at) and is home to a high profile Drosophila research community and the VDRC Stock Center. In an addition to a stimulating scientific environment, Vienna also offers an extraordinary quality of living. Affordable housing, excellent public transport, great restaurants, a range of international schools, two operas, two music centers, many theaters and museums in combination with a pleasant climate make Vienna one of the most attractive cities in Europe.

 The position is available from April 2011. The application should be emailed to christian.schloetterer from vetmeduni.ac.at as a single pdf containing CV, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and the names of three references with contact details. While the search will continue until the position is filled, applications should be received by January, 30 to ensure full consideration.
