Please, bring this to attention of potential candidates
----------

1. W3-Professorship “Systems Neurobiology” at the Werner Reichardt 
Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) in Tübingen

The Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) is an 
interdisciplinary institution at the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen 
funded by the German Excellence Initiative program. The CIN strives to 
deepen our understanding of how the brain generates function and how 
brain diseases impair functions. It tries to make use of newly acquired 
insights to help people with brain disorders and to launch new mind- and 
brain-inspired applications in many areas of engineering and computer 
science.

The new professor is expected to direct innovative research on 
subcortical systems and cortico-subcortical interactions. Possible, but 
not exclusive, research areas are the functional role of the basal 
ganglia, the spinal cord, the vestibular system or the 
cortical-subcortical underpinnings of motor control. Candidates for 
professorships should have a long-standing experience in 
interdisciplinary research in the respective area. The candidate should 
have a proven track record of international excellence and external 
grant funding and be willing to contribute to research oriented training 
in the neurosciences at University of Tübingen. The new CIN professor 
will be a member of the Faculty of Science (Department of Biology). The 
position is tenured.

According to German law, disabled persons with equal occupational 
aptitude will be given preferred consideration. The University of 
Tübingen and CIN strive to promote equal opportunities in science and is 
committed to increasing the percentage of female scientists in teaching 
and research. Qualified female candidates are strongly encouraged to 
apply. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, pdf files of up to 5 
key publications, statements of research achievements and future 
directions together by February 26th, 2013 to the Dean of the Faculty of 
Science, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Rosenstiel, at dekanat at mnf.uni-tuebingen.de.

2. Junior Research Group for Neuroscientists at the Werner Reichardt 
Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) in Tübingen
The Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) is an 
interdisciplinary institution at the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen 
funded by the German Excellence Initiative program. The CIN strives to 
deepen our understanding of how the brain generates function and how 
brain diseases impair functions. It tries to make use of newly acquired 
insights to help people with brain disorders and to launch new mind- and 
brain-inspired applications in many areas of engineering and computer 
science. Its scientific program is guided by the conviction that 
progress in the understanding of brain function can only be achieved by 
an integrative approach spanning multiple levels of organization and 
pooling the knowledge of researchers from many different fields.
The CIN is offering a junior group leader (JRG) position with tenure 
track option for up-and-coming young scientists with a promising track 
record in any area of the neurosciences. Since the CIN strives to 
increase the number of women scientists, topics well represented by 
qualified female candidates will be preferred. Hence we explicitly 
encourage female candidates to apply. Submission deadline is February 
15th 2013.

Framework
The intended duration of the position is for 5 years with evaluations by 
external experts at regular intervals. In the event of positive 
evaluations after 3 years, the JRG will obtain a tenure track option, 
which may ultimately lead to a professorship at the University of 
Tübingen. Start-up funds as well as substantial funding for personnel 
and running costs will be available, but will depend on the applicant’s 
qualifications and prior experience. Appointees will be full members of 
and active participants in the CIN, which will also provide laboratory 
and/or office space. The JRG leader will be provided with opportunities 
to contribute to research oriented training within the framework of the 
CIN Graduate Training Centre and the faculties involved in the CIN will 
provide opportunities for the German Habilitation according to 
established rules, if desired. According to German law, severely 
disabled persons with equal occupational aptitude will be given 
preferential consideration.

Application
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, pdf files of up to 5 key 
publications, a statement of research achievements and future directions 
(not to exceed 3 pages) as well as the names and addresses of at least 
three referees. All documents should be submitted electronically to the 
Chairman of the Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience 
Tübingen, Prof. Dr. Peter Thier, at cin at uni-tuebingen.de. For further 
information on the CIN see: http://www.cin.uni-tuebingen.de/.
