Call for applications for CEF Adjunct Investigator status

The Cluster of Excellence Frankfurt “Macromolecular Complexes” (CEF) invites applications from researchers in Frankfurt for CEF Adjunct Investigatorships.

The Cluster has set up and run a successful Adjunct Investigator Programme over the past six years supporting 16 scientists at the University of Frankfurt and the Max Planck Institutes.  

Adjunct Investigators will receive substantial research funding, with the possibility of extension. They will be Members of CEF. Eligible are outstanding scientists without a permanent position pursuing independent research in an area relevant to the Cluster at the participating university faculties and research institutes in Frankfurt. While Tenured W2 and W3 professors are not eligible, researchers on tenure-track W2 positions can apply for funding. Applications from junior researchers and from female scientists are especially encouraged.

Applications will be evaluated by external reviewers and an independent external selection committee. The selection will be based strictly on scientific excellence.

Applications should include a one-page CV, complete list of publications, pdf files of the three most important papers, a two-page summary of research achievements and a three-page statement of scientific objectives and interests for the next two to three years. Applications should be directed by e-mail to CEF at office@cef-mc.de.

The deadline for complete applications is 8 October 2012.
