At the University Medical Center Greifswald, a legal entity of the University of Greifswald, a W2 professorship for ophthalmology (m/f/d) in the Clinic and Polyclinic for Ophthalmology (Director: Prof. Dr. A. Stahl) is to be filled as soon as possible. In accordance with § 62a of the State University Law of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (LHG M-V), the appointment to the W2 professorship, which is initially limited to five years, is linked to the promise of permanent employment under the condition that performance requirements specified in detail in advance are met during the term of the W2 professorship.

In accordance with the duties of the position, an internationally recognized, highly qualified scientist in an early career phase is sought to fully represent the subject in clinical, research and teaching activities. The professorship is intended to strengthen and further develop the spectrum of the clinic, especially in the area of anterior segment/glaucoma. Further specialties in other areas of ophthalmology such as eyelid/lacrimal surgery or retinal surgery are advantageous, but can also be acquired during the work at the University Medical Center Greifswald to complete the candidate’s personal clinical spectrum. Experience in conducting clinical studies, including multicenter studies and Investigator-Initiated Trials (IITs), is an advantage.

The personality to be appointed should have a very good surgical track record based on the surgical catalog as well as scientific track record based on publications and third-party funding. Active participation in the research priorities of the faculty (Digital Health Lab, Community Medicine, Molecular Medicine, Individualized Medicine), networking with University and non-University institutions at the scientific location Greifswald as well as commitment to teaching is expected. The clinical activity of a senior physician in Ophthalmology is expected. With appropriate suitability, the function of the deputy of the clinic director is planned in the medium term.

The University Medical Center Greifswald promotes family-friendly leadership behavior and supports dual-career couples in creating a common center of work and life. Prerequisites for employment are, in addition to the fulfillment of the general service regulations, a completed University degree, extensive experience in teaching, the doctorate and habilitation or habilitation-equivalent achievements in a relevant subject and the German Board certificate in Ophthalmology. Ability to speak and understand German fluently is also a prerequisite for this position.

The filling of the position is in accordance with § 61 LHG M-V. The position is intended to be employed under private law by the University Medical Center Greifswald with non-tariff remuneration.

This advertisement is aimed at all persons, regardless of gender. The University Medical Center aims to increase the proportion of women where women are underrepresented. For this reason, applications from women are particularly welcome and will be given priority in the case of equivalent qualifications, unless reasons relating to the person of the competitor prevail. Severely disabled persons will be given preference in the event of equal professional and personal suitability. Costs incurred in the application process will not be covered by Greifswald University Medical Center.

Applications are requested with the usual documents (curriculum vitae, surgery numbers, description of scientific career, list of publications, list of teaching courses, list of third-party funds raised to date, proof of academic examinations, appointments and teaching experience, five selected original publications) by 09.06.2023. Applications must be uploaded here: addressed to Universitätsmedizin Greifswald - KdöR -, Wissenschaftlicher Vorstand/Dekan, Fleischmannstraße 8, 17475 Greifswald. Applications by mail or e-mail cannot be considered.
