Group leaders at MIMS (up to three positions)
MIMS (http://www.mims.umu.se/) seeks excellent young researchers who are interested in becoming new Group Leaders for innovative research in Molecular Infection Medicine. MIMS intends to finance up to three new Group Leader appointments in the coming year, and funding is primarily for at first at longest a five-year period, with the option of extension up to a total of nine years after external evaluation in the fourth year. Applicants should have documented successful research in areas relevant to molecular infection medicine. For one of the appointments, applicants should have research background and competence in cryo-electron microscopy, as the Group Leader also will be affiliated with The Cryo-EM Swedish National Facility (www.scilifelab.com/facilities/cryo-em/) as SciLifeLab Fellow.
The recruited researchers will receive extensive support in order to establish their own research group with participants at postdoctoral and doctoral level. Applicants are also expected to be able to supplement their research budget through their own national and international research grants. Applicants are expected to conduct a successful research program in synergy with the multidisciplinary research environment that surrounds MIMS and also participate in collaborations and joint activities promoting research and exchanges within the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine (www.embl.de/research/partnerships/remote/nordic/index.html).
