The Department of Medicine and Life Sciences (MELIS) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) aims to fill a Group Leader position in the field of Cell Biology. We are looking for candidates in the early- to mid-stages of their career with an excellent track record of experimental research addressed to understanding living organisms at the scale of cells and/or tissues. The position is tenure track, but a fast track to tenure will be possible depending on the seniority of the candidate.

Successful candidates will be highly accomplished scientists with a PhD in Biology or a similar field, and a strong capacity to lead high-impact research projects (mid-stage career applicants must have a solid track record in leading such projects). The future group leader will be expected to attract national and international research funds, supervise doctoral theses, and actively engage in teaching cell biology courses in both undergraduate and graduate UPF programs. Selected applicants are also expected to collaborate with the other research groups of the Department in scientific interdisciplinary projects of common interest.
