The candidates will be Principal Investigator, with the title Max Planck Tandem Research Leader of the MPTRG. The candidate must be at the beginning of a successful scientific career with postdoctoral experience, and be highly motivated to developed and carry out a competitive research program at the international level.

Solid, sustainable ties of collaboration will be developed between the Tandem Groups within their host institution and other universities and research institutes in Chile, and the Max Planck Institutes that are part of the Agreement.

The salary of the position is highly competitive according to local standards. Additional funds will be allocated for staff, supplies and research equipment. The successful candidate will be appointed initially for 5 years with the possibility of two year extension following an outstanding independent external evaluation. The MPG, CINV and UV seek to increase the number of women in those areas where they are under-represented and therefore explicitly encourage women to apply.

Applications, including curriculum vitae, list of publications, reprints of three selected papers, a two-page description of scientific achievements, a two-page research plan and two letters of recommendation should be sent electronically as one pdf file to:research.leaders@cinv.cl

Deadline for registration is July 31st 2015. Short-listed candidates will be invited to a selection symposium in Valparaíso, Chile, on November 18th-20th, 2015, at which they will have the opportunity to present their research. For further information and detailed instructions, click here.
