The University of Tübingen is one of Germany’s top-level research universities, with a broad spectrum of subjects based on long tradition. With its ambitious institutional strategy the University has been successful in the government’s Excellence Initiative.

In order to support young researchers in achieving independence at an early stage of their scientific careers, the university offers up to six positions for Junior Research Group Leaders for young scientists with a highly promising track record. Candidates with an excellent doctorate and postdoctoral experience of two to four years will be enabled to lead a cutting-edge project in one of the University’s core research areas in the Life Sciences, Medicine, Mathematics, Science, Social Sciences or the Humanities. Interest in collaboration with University research groups is essential.

The University of Tübingen actively seeks to foster career opportunities for female researchers and therefore strongly encourages qualified women to apply.
