(211-0107/19-2K) Full Professorship in Post-transcriptional gene regulation in plants

Full Professorship in Post-Transcriptional Gene Regulation in Plants
Department of Biology
Faculty of Science
University of Copenhagen

The Department of Biology at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for a professorship in Post-transcriptional gene regulation in plants. The position is to be filled by 1 January 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter, subject to negotiation.

The Department of Biology is among the largest Departments of the University of Copenhagen. It employs about 475 academic and technical staff and hosts research programmes and teaching curricula that cover all major biological sub-disciplines. University rankings typically place the field of Biology at the University of Copenhagen first in Denmark and among the top 30 universities internationally. In addition to a PhD-programme, three BSc study programmes (biology, biochemistry, molecular biomedicine) and four MSc study programmes (biology, biochemistry, molecular biomedicine, bioinformatics) engage close to 2000 students.

The new professorship will be embedded in the Section for Computational and RNA Biology. The Section's research spans the DNA, RNA and protein worlds and covers the methodological spectrum from wet-lab molecular biology to advanced computational model building and statistical inference.

The Section offers a cross-disciplinary research environment with state-of-the-art wet-lab and computational facilities and maintains an informal, trusting and collaborative working atmosphere. Section staff currently includes three professors, five associate professors, three laboratory technicians, and more than 40 post docs and PhD students. The Section is supported by substantial external funding.

Description of the position
With the position, the department wishes to strengthen its research on the molecular mechanisms governing control of gene expression in plants. Priority will be given to applicants who have made contributions to our understanding of different fields of post-transcriptional gene regulation, and we are especially interested in candidates with documented contributions within the field of mRNA modifications and at least one other field of post-transcriptional gene regulation in plants.

Complementarity with regard to the current research focus of the section is essential as is an interest in establishing interdisciplinary collaboration with the other sections at the department. In addition to research, duties also include teaching and supervision of students at the undergraduate, graduate and PhD-levels, with prime course assignments within the Biology and Biochemistry degree programmes, as well as some management tasks requested by the Department.

Applicants should have a scientific background within post-transcriptional gene control in plants. A significant track-record of attracting external research funding as well as a significant publication record in high-level, international, peer-reviewed ISI journals is required. Candidates are also required to have documented university level competencies in delivering high-quality undergraduate/graduate teaching and must be able to explain and reflect upon own teaching practice and portfolio. Formal pedagogical training or supervision equivalent to the University of Copenhagen Teaching and Learning in Higher Education programme is necessary. Finally, candidates are expected to have managerial qualifications and experience in leading a competitive research group, as well as out-reach qualifications.

For further information regarding qualification requirements, please refer to the criteria for the hiring and promotion of permanent academic staff at Department of Biology at

Assessment of applicants will primarily consider their level of documented, original scientific production at an international level, including contributions to developments in their field, scientific profile in relation to ongoing research at the section, as well as their documented teaching qualifications. Managerial and out-reach qualifications of applicants including ability to attract external funding will also be considered.

Terms of employment
The position is open from 1 January 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff. Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

Commencing salary for professors are currently DKK 621.105 including annual supplement (+ pension DKK 106.208). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.

The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
