Department Director

The Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology is seeking candidates for a position as Department Director that drives novel research directions in the field of marine microbiology. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: organismic microbiology focusing on marine microbial eukaryotes, marine virology, eukaryogenesis or the role of interspecies interactions in microbial evolution, and feedback between global change and marine microbial activity. The successful candidate will be expected to have a strong research profile in these or other areas in the broader field of marine microbiology.

The MPI-MM investigates the diversity and physiology of microorganisms, especially of Bacteria and Archaea, their interactions with each other and eukaryotes, and their impact on marine and other aquatic environments. Our research draws on concepts and methods from microbiology, physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, geochemistry, symbiosis, and ecology. Field expeditions form an important part of our research and in the spirit of our institute many expeditions are carried out in close collaboration across MPI research groups.

Expression of interest, and nominations of candidates should be sent to Dr. Marcel Kuypers, Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology Bremen, Celsiusstraße 1, 28359 Bremen, Germany ([Bitte aktivieren Sie Javascript]) by March 20th, 2023
