The University Hospital of Würzburg is one of the oldest and largest university hospitals in Germany. 34 specialized clinics, departments and institutes provide excellent research and teaching and enable interprofessional and interdisciplinary patient care at the highest level. The joint mission of the University Hospital of Würzburg and the University of Würzburg is to create a vivid and favorable research environment for Clinical Research and Medical Translation. To this end, the Department of Translational Pediatrics has been recently appointed and commits themselves together with the Children’s Hospital to this goal. In concert, they have created a Pediatric Research Unit that operates local, national and international networks of active collaborations with scientists across the world.
The scientific manager (m/f/d) will operate at the interface between scientists, physicians, and the technical staff and support the head of the Department of Translational Pediatrics and the director of the Children’s Hospital to facilitate their role of overseeing and coordinating the different scientific activities on site and beyond. The duties will include internal project management including communication with collaborating laboratories, funding bodies and authorities, analytics, managing laboratory equipment, protocols, support of on- and off-boarding staff processes, information dissemination and bridging to non-scientific activities, serving its scientific community.
Candidates should have successfully completed a university degree in either life sciences or social sciences, law, business and management, or economics and finances and should have acquired a respective PhD/master. They should have very good oral and written language skills in German and English and strong organizing and communication skills. A scientific background in the area of pediatrics, immunology or infectious diseases including typical molecular and cell biological methods is of advantage. We look for a highly organized, integrative, and service oriented personality who wishes to coordinate and facilitate the research activities in an international and interdisciplinary team of scientists.
We provide an international, interdisciplinary, exciting and stimulating scientific environment at the University Hospital Würzburg and the Research Center for Infectious Diseases of the University of Würzburg (ZINF) with strong connections to the WüSI (Max-Planck Würzburg Institute of Systems Immunology), the HIRI (Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection Research), and the Biocenter of the University of Würzburg. Our research spans the entire pipeline from basic research with a focus on innate immunity, inflammation and host-pathogen interactions to randomized controlled clinical studies. We involve patient and birth cohorts and use various state-of-the-art techniques in cell biology, molecular biology and biochemistry, including deep phenotyping of cells by FACS analysis, chipcytometry, single cell sequencing, transcriptomics, cytokine measurements and well-established murine models.
