Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Cen­ter for Rege­ne­ra­tive The­ra­pies Dres­den (CRTD)

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Lea­der of an Inde­pen­dent Junior Rese­arch Group on Rege­ne­ra­tive Bio­logy

(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion, remu­ne­ra­tion accord­ing to salary group E 15 TV-L with Ten­ure-Track to W2)

The posi­tion is star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­tion is initi­ally limi­ted to six years accord­ing to the Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz – WissZeitVG (Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act) and aims at obtai­ning fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion. Com­pe­ti­tive fun­ding will be pro­vi­ded for the posi­tion of the junior rese­arch group lea­der and their group, depen­ding on qua­li­fi­ca­tion and sub­ject to nego­tia­tion. At the latest in the fifth year, a ten­ure eva­lua­tion will be car­ried out by an inter-faculty and inter-depart­mental com­mis­sion. Pro­vi­ded a posi­tive eva­lua­tion result, the suc­cess­ful can­di­date will be appoin­ted to a per­ma­nent Chair (W2) of Rege­ne­ra­tive Bio­logy wit­hout new selec­tion pro­cess. The eva­lua­tion pro­ce­dure is based on mutually agreed eva­lua­tion cri­te­ria at the start of the ser­vice. Essen­tial com­pon­ents of the eva­lua­tion are the sci­en­ti­fic suc­cess in the form of qua­lity and quan­tity of publi­ca­ti­ons, suc­cess in the acqui­si­tion and manage­ment of third-party funds and in the pro­mo­tion of young aca­de­mics, a posi­tively eva­lua­ted tea­ching per­for­mance, active par­ti­ci­pa­tion in coope­ra­tive pro­jects wit­hin and out­side the cen­tral aca­de­mic unit and uni­ver­sity, and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion in aca­de­mic self-admi­nis­tra­tion.

The CMCB unites the three insti­tu­tes Cen­ter for Mole­cu­lar Bio­en­gi­nee­ring (B CUBE), Bio­tech­no­logy Cen­ter (BIO­TEC) and the CRTD under one roof. Here, inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity, inno­va­tion and inter­na­tio­na­lity are empha­si­zed. The insti­tu­tes signi­fi­cantly shape the rese­arch pro­file line "Health Sci­en­ces, Bio­me­di­cine and Bio­en­gi­nee­ring" of the TU Dres­den. Tis­sue rege­ne­ra­tion and the deve­lop­ment of cell-based rege­ne­ra­tive the­ra­pies are the rese­arch topics of the CRTD. Hema­to­logy, immu­no­logy, dia­be­tes, bone rege­ne­ra­tion and neu­ro­de­ge­ne­ra­tive disea­ses are the main focus. Cur­r­ently, 20 chairs and rese­arch groups with 250 employees from 30 nati­ons are con­duc­ting rese­arch at the CRTD.

Working field:

You (m/f/x) will con­duct rese­arch at the inter­face bet­ween fun­da­men­tal bio­logy and trans­la­tio­nal rese­arch. Tog­e­ther with its stra­te­gic part­ners on cam­pus, the facul­ties of Bio­logy and Medi­cine, CRTD aims to streng­t­hen and fur­ther deve­lop new sci­en­ti­fic activi­ties wit­hin its focus on rege­ne­ra­tion (e.g. reju­ve­na­tion, cell meta­bo­lism, immu­no­logy, etc.). The use or adop­tion of the latest bre­akth­rough tech­no­lo­gies (e.g. in orga­no­ids, gene edi­t­ing, sin­gle cell geno­mics, phy­sio­logy, com­pu­ta­tio­nal approa­ches, syn­the­tic bio­logy, etc.) is also seen as an asset. There is par­ti­cu­lar inte­rest in iden­ti­fy­ing can­di­da­tes with the poten­tial to streng­t­hen future CMCB initia­ti­ves (e.g., new clus­ters of excel­lence, DFG Col­la­bo­ra­tive Rese­arch Cen­ters, or simi­lar) and col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons on the Life Sci­ence Cam­pus.

You will con­duct inde­pen­dent inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch in your rese­arch field at an inter­na­tio­nally com­pe­ti­tive level. This inclu­des the con­cep­tion and coor­di­na­tion of the group’s rese­arch pro­gram, recruit­ment of rele­vant part­ners and invol­ve­ment in col­la­bo­ra­tive efforts across the cam­pus with the suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­tion of the rese­arch activi­ties, publi­ca­ti­ons, and acqui­si­tion of third-party fun­ding. App­li­cants will also be invol­ved in the CMCB’s tea­ching efforts and will pre­do­mi­nantly be tea­ching (in Eng­lish) in the inter­na­tio­nal Mas­ter’s pro­gram “Rege­ne­ra­tive Bio­logy and Medi­cine” of the CMCB at TU Dres­den. Fur­ther­more, the sup­port of topic-rela­ted tea­ching offers of the Faculty of Bio­logy of the School of Sci­ence of TU Dres­den is plan­ned. App­li­cants estab­li­shing their first rese­arch group and app­ly­ing for/hol­ding an ERC star­ting grant, DFG Emmy Noe­ther pro­gram etc. are par­ti­cu­larly encou­ra­ged to apply.


Sui­ta­ble app­li­cants must have a uni­ver­sity degree in natu­ral or medi­cal sci­en­ces, a PhD degree or equi­va­lent, out­stan­ding achie­ve­ments in inter­na­tio­nal bio­me­di­cal rese­arch, and a pro­ven track record of excel­lence in their field of rese­arch. App­li­cants need to be expe­ri­en­ced in stee­ring rese­arch pro­jects inde­pendently. Know­ledge in acqui­ring third-party fun­ding is advan­ta­ge­ous. The pre­re­qui­si­tes for appoint­ment to the unli­mi­ted chair (W2) after the suc­cess­ful ten­ure track eva­lua­tion are based on § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (SächsHSFG).

What we offer:

The new junior rese­arch group will be housed - tog­e­ther with the exis­ting core groups - in a dedi­ca­ted labo­ra­tory area in the modern CRTD buil­ding and will be able to access a com­pre­hen­sive, sha­red cen­tral tech­no­logy plat­form. The CRTD is loca­ted on the Life Sci­ence Cam­pus in close pro­xi­mity to the Max Planck Insti­tute of Mole­cu­lar Cell Bio­logy and Gene­tics (MPI-CBG), the Dres­den Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal “Carl Gus­tav Carus” (, three Ger­man Cen­ters for Health Rese­arch, which include the local sites of the Ger­man Cen­ter for Dia­be­tes Rese­arch (DZD) and the Ger­man Cen­ter for Neu­ro­de­ge­ne­ra­tive Disea­ses (DZNE), and the Dres­den Inter­na­tio­nal Gra­duate School for Bio­me­di­cine and Bio­en­gi­nee­ring (DIGS-BB).

The TU Dres­den sup­ports ten­ure-track posi­tion hol­ders wit­hin the YOU PROF pro­gram. With men­to­ring, various coa­ching, spe­cial fur­ther trai­ning and sup­port offers, active pro­fes­sio­nal gui­d­ance and sup­port is pro­vi­ded throughout the dura­tion of qua­li­fi­ca­tion phase.

If you have any fur­ther ques­ti­ons regar­ding this posi­tion, please do not hesi­tate to con­tact the direc­tor of the CRTD, Prof. Feder­ico Cale­gari (Tel.: +49 351 458-82204;

TU Dres­den under­stands diver­sity as a cul­tu­ral mat­ter of course and as a qua­lity fea­ture of a uni­ver­sity of excel­lence. The­re­fore, we warmly wel­come all app­li­cants who are wil­ling to con­tri­bute with their per­for­mance and per­so­na­lity and thus con­tri­bute to the suc­cess of all.
