The UMG aims to consistently advance its focal research areas neurosciences, cardiovascular medicine, and oncology by integrating approaches from both translational and systems medicine, and achieves this also as a partner location of the health research centers German Center for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK) and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE). The UMG is a consortium partner of the HiGHmed Consortium within the National Medical Informatics Initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). For the latter, the UMG is building a new Medical Research Data Integration Center (UMG-MeDIC) operated by the Institute for Medical Informatics.
The University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) invites applications for a full
University professorship Medical Informatics
(Pay grade W3)
(Successor to Prof. Dr. Otto Rienhoff)
Commencing as soon as possible.
The incumbent of the W3 professorship will assume the position as Head of the Institute for Medical Informatics (approximately 50 staff in four largely independent working groups). The target structure includes two W2 professorships and one W1 professorship.
The institute cooperates close with the institutions for informatics at the UMG and the University at the Göttingen Campus.
In the context of further appointments to digital medicine at the UMG, a scientific profile based on extensive general experience in medical informatics is expected. The applicant should have experience in building and operating integrative digital research infrastructure, e.g., in the area of bio signals/sensors or other clinical measurement data.
Experience in the competitive acquisition, implementation, and management of third-party funded projects is required.
With regard to teaching, the head of the institute coordinates the components of medical informatics in the curricula of the UMG, of the IMIA-certified Bachelor's and Master's degree programs "Medical Informatics" of the University of Göttingen as well as the HiGHmed-study modules and teaching on the Health Campus Göttingen.
A habilitation or an equivalent scientific qualification is required, as well as leadership skills and teaching experience. Further requirements for the appointment of university professors are laid out in the current version of § 25 of the Higher Education Act of the State of Lower Saxony (Niedersächsisches Hochschulgesetz). The UMG reserves the right of appointment.
We especially encourage applications from foreign candidates. The UMG strives to increase the number of women on its scientific staff and therefore particularly encourages qualified women to apply. In case of applicants of equal qualification, candidates with disabilities will be given preference.
