As part of their clinical activities, the future holder of the W3 professorship will take over the leadership of the Department of Thoracic Surgery within the Surgery Clinic.
In research, the W 3 Professor for Specialized Surgical Oncology and Thoracic Surgery should focus in particular on oncological issues in the field of thoracic surgery, and in addition to strengthening the faculty research focus on oncology should also bolster the research areas of medical technology and vascular biology and medicine. The successful candidate is expected to enrich these research priorities with their own third-party funded research projects. With regard to patient care, the W 3 Professor for Specialized Surgery Oncology and Thoracic Surgery should ensure the comprehensive diagnosis and therapy of thoracic surgical conditions at the highest level. In teaching, intensive participation in the design and implementation of the teaching within the MaReCuM model medical degree program is expected.
Applicants should have acquired a university degree, a doctoral degree, and additional academic achievements that in accordance with § 47 para 2 of the Landeshochschulgesetz should be demonstrated by a Habilitation, a successfully evaluated Junior professorship or comparable qualifications. Licensing as a medical specialist for thoracic surgery is required. An international reputation in basic, translational or clinical research in the field of thoracic surgery and / or related fields is also expected, as well as broad clinical experience in caring for patients with acute, chronic and oncological diseases of the thorax and bronchopulmonary system.
We are looking for an innovative leader with excellent qualifications in open and video-assisted thoracic surgery, as well as extensive experience in robot-assisted thoracic surgery. In addition, the national reference center for robot-assisted thymus surgery should be further expanded and developed. In close cooperation with clinical partners from other disciplines, in particular pneumology, the successful applicant will also be responsible for the further expansion of operative thoracic medicine at the University Medical Center Mannheim. As well as proof of successful acquisition of third-party funding, cooperation and leadership abilities, commitment to the further development of the MaReCuMplus study program and engagement in academic self-governance are expected.
The position is a permanent W3 Professorship. If the general legal (German civil service law) and budgetary requirements are fulfilled, the appointment will, as a rule, be an appointment to a permanent professorship with civil service for life status (Beamtenverhältnis auf Lebenszeit).
The University of Heidelberg is striving to increase the proportion of female professors and therefore strongly encourages qualified female scientists to apply. People with disabilities will be preferred if they have equivalent qualifications and suitability.
Applications containing the documents prescribed in the application guide, together with the application form for W3 professorships (see
