Bioprocess Engineering Professor Job @ FAU | Germany

Bioprocess Engineering Professor Job @ FAU | Germany: Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (German: Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, FAU) is a public research university in the cities of Erlangen and Nuremberg in Bavaria, Germany. The name Friedrich-Alexander comes from the university’s first founder Friedrich, Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth, and its benefactor Christian Frederick Charles Alexander, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach. In Germany, traditional liberal arts universities do not usually have an engineering school or department. However, FAU does have a distinct engineering faculty. FAU is the second largest state university in the state Bavaria. It has 5 faculties, 23 departments/schools, 30 clinical departments, 19 autonomous departments, 656 professors, 3,404 members of academic staff and roughly 13,000 employees.

The Faculty of Engineering invites applications for a

W3 Professorship for Bioprocess Engineering at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering to be filled by the earliest possible starting date.


The successful candidate will hold the Chair of Bioprocess Engineering and is expected to represent the field adequately in teaching and research. The scientific focus of the professorship shall be on the fundamentals and methods of bioprocess engineering, as well as future-orientated applications in areas such as biocatalysis, industrial bioprocess engineering or systems biotechnology.
The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the degree programmes of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and related degree programmes of the Faculty of Engineering. Additional desired qualities include the willingness to co-operate in interdisciplinary research, to engage in inter-university collaboration projects related to the field, and to initiate and lead co-ordinated bioengineering research projects.


Prerequisites for the position are a university degree, university level teaching experience, a doctoral degree, and additional academic qualifications. These should be in the form of a Habilitation (post-doctoral thesis) or equivalent academic publications. The necessary qualifications may also have been acquired in a non-university context or through a junior faculty position (e.g. W1 Professor or Assistant Professor).

FAU expects applicants to become actively involved in the administration of academic affairs and welcomes experience in managing research projects and raising third-party funding.
The University of Erlangen-Nürnberg pursues a policy of intensive student mentoring and therefore expects its teaching staff to be present during lecture periods.
