Deadline for applications(250 days ago)
University Medicine Essen / University Hospital EssenEssen
We are one of the youngest universities in Germany and think in terms of unlimited possibilities instead of possible limitations.
Located in the heart of the Ruhr metropolis, our 11 faculties develop ideas for the future. We are strong in research and teaching,
we embrace diversity, promote academic potential, and we are highly committed to educational equality.
University Medicine Essen is on its way to becoming a SMART Hospital, where digital technologies will enable employees to further
improve patient care, research and education. We are convinced that truly personalized medicine can only be realized, if we combine
digitization in medicine with artificial intelligence. We have therefore decided to establish an Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in
Medicine. In its founding stage, this institute will be staffed with four professorships dealing with different aspects of AI in medicine. We
envision these professorships to synergistically lead the successful development of our innovative concept. It is our aim to identify
highly motivated individuals with a broad and complementary range of expertise with whom we undertake this journey.
