Professor (W2) “Marine Biosensors

July 23, 2012


The Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) of the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg (Germany) investigates the significance of shelf seas and coastal regions. At our location Wilhelmshaven with six working groups we are offering a position for a

Professor (W2) “Marine Biosensors”.

The main research areas of the successful applicant will effectively complement the existing research activities of ICBM with regard to development, application and optimization of in-situ methods for the assessment of biological and chemical processes in the water column and sediment. Priority is given to research and development of (semi)autonomic measuring systems for realtime assessment of organisms, genes and metabolites in complex marine ecosystems.

The successful applicant is expected to cooperate closely with our microbiological and geochemical working groups as well as with our Max-Planck research groups.  The successful applicant will contribute to teaching in the planned Master programme “Marine Sensors”, the Bachelor programme “Environmental Science” and the Master programmes “Marine Environmental Sciences” and “Microbiology”.

In cooperation with the Jade University of Applied Sciences, the successful applicant will establish a scientific competence field “Marine Technology” in Wilhelmshaven. Active participation in joint research projects is expected, as well as close cooperation with the members of the Northwest Marine Research Network and the University of Bremen.

The University is seeking to employ a personality with excellent scientific qualifications and proven record in external funding within a seminal field of biological and/or chemical sensor technology. The successful applicant will be capable of developing structures and cooperation in the marine science and technology community. She or he is expected to bring in expertises in one or more of the following areas: mini- and micro-fluidic analyzer, sampling and detection systems for molecular biological analyses (meta-omics, micro arrays), in situ mass spectrometry, surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy, optical-chemical transducers (optodes) as well as analyzing the physiology and primary production of phytoplankton by means of fluorometry.

General qualifications for this professorship are specified in §25 of the Lower Saxonian Law of Academics (NHG) and shall encompass an above-average doctoral degree in natural sciences, a proven record of scientific performance, educational and didactic skills.

The Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg is an equal opportunity employer.  In order to increase the percentage of female faculty members, female candidates with equal qualification will be given priority. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered in case of equal qualification.

Applications (including CV, list of publications, certificates, summary of previous teaching activities, research and teaching perspective) should be sent by 31.08.2012 to Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, Director of the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment, 26111 Oldenburg, Germany, or alternatively as pdf document to
