Director for the Biotech Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC), The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen

The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen is one of the largest health and medical science faculties in Europe, and a powerful player in the increasing competition for research talents and external research grants. Research is the foundation for our education, and ensures that our future graduates leave us with the best academic skills. Our goal is to provide new and ground-breaking knowledge, educate talented and innovative graduates, and contribute to increasing the growth and development of society. To obtain this goal, we focus significantly on healthy work environments, talents, infrastructure, and strategic collaborations, nationally and internationally.

We consider excellent leadership a necessity to obtaining these goals.

The Biotech Research & Innovation Centre
The Biotech Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC) is a world-leading centre of excellence within biomedical research with approximately 250 employees, including more than 60% international researchers. The centre is embedded in the health and natural science campus, in close proximity to the National Hospital of Denmark (Rigshospitalet). BRIC is organised in 26 independent research groups (17 BRIC groups, 6 groups affiliated via the Finsen Laboratory and 3 from other units), eight core facilities, and an administrative unit. BRIC hosts a PhD programme with 115 students and offers a postdoc career programme for the centre’s approximately 90 postdocs. At pre-graduate level, BRIC organises and teaches courses at three master programmes under the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. The centre aims to maintain an open dialogue with the surrounding world through outreach activities.

BRIC’s primary goal is to perform cutting-edge basic research in an open and diverse environment that fosters interdisciplinarity and collaboration. Apart from performing excellent basic biomedical research, the main aims of the centre are to offer outstanding research training of young scientists, translate research findings to hospitals and the industrial sector.

BRIC’s research groups (https://www.bric.ku.dk/Research) work with programmes relevant for understanding basic biological processes, cancer, inflammation, and neurological disorders, and the centre has established itself as internationally leading in the areas of epigenetics, transcriptional control, cell signalling, stem cell biology, cancer development, metastasis and neuroimmunology.

The Position
The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, is looking to recruit a BRIC director with a visionary approach to leadership and an internationally recognised research profile. The director should have experience in research leadership at institutional or research programme level, and have a natural ability and authority for leading scientific and support staff. The director is expected to be based full time at BRIC, where she/he will be expected to establish an active research laboratory addressing fundamental biological questions, complementing BRIC’s research efforts in the molecular mechanisms of disease. Scientifically, the director should have the level to be able to obtain a professorship at University of Copenhagen, which will be a criterion in the selection process.

We are looking for a director who will foster a supportive and collegial environment, in which the employees collectively strive for scientific excellence. The director will be given the opportunity to develop and shape BRIC further in order to maintain its status as a world-leading research centre of excellence. The director is expected to be active in the international research environment and to engage in the further development of BRIC’s international network and collaborations, within and beyond academia. Moreover, the director is responsible for ensuring the continuous development of BRIC’s infrastructure, research support, and administration, thereby securing the best possible frame for BRIC’s research, communication, and utilization of research as well as for BRIC’s research training and educational programmes.

The job
The director has the main responsibility for the scientific profile, strategic development, and focus areas of the centre. In addition, the director has the economic responsibility for BRIC’s activities. In partnership with the dean, the vice-deans, the faculty director, and the other heads of departments and centres, the director constitutes the faculty management, who are responsible for the strategic leadership of the faculty. The BRIC director reports to the dean.
