DIRECTOR OF ICRI-BioM
ICRI-BioM is seeking an academic leader to serve as the Director. This individual will be
responsible for vision and implementation of the research within this new institution and
initiation of collaborative activities with other scientific institutions.
ICRI-BioM is new research institution, established under the Foundation for Polish Science MAB PLUS Program in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz. It aims at the creation of an excellent scientific unit that focuses on combining polymer chemistry with molecular biosystems engineering experimentally and with the aid of computational sciences. Initially three groups, led by Principal Investigators (one of which will be the Director) of highest scientific standings, are expected to be organized. They will be subsequently augmented by two junior PI groups. It is expected that the collaboration and synergy between these groups, local scientific environment, and international cooperation will lead to breakthrough research in basic and in applied sciences.
Candidates should have at least PhD degree and 10 years of experience in at least one of the main fields of the planned research areas as described above, international recognition for research accomplishments (ideally comparable to the Advanced ERC level), and possess effective leadership, managerial, and collaborative skills as well as a record as a mentor to young scientists.
The selection is a two-steps process. Interested candidates are requested to e-mail the following documentation (in pdf format):
