Research Group Leader Positions (f/m/x)

The School of Medicine at the Technische Universität Dresden wants to strengthen translational research and career development strategies for clinician and medical scientists in precision oncology. Therefore the new Mildred-Scheel Nachwuchszentrum (MSNZ) ‘Personalized career development in precision oncology: P2’ is being established, which is funded by the German Cancer Aid (Deutsche Krebshilfe) for initially 5 years. Situated at the NCT/UCC of the University hospital, the MSNZ is embedded in the Dresden life science-medical campus.

At the next possible point of time we would like to recruit
