Clinician Scientists (MD)

University Hospital and the University of Würzburg

Würzburg, Germany

The Faculty of Medicine is currently establishing a new center for cancer research, which is funded by a grant from the German Cancer Aid (Deutsche Krebshilfe). This center (“Mildred-Scheel Nachwuchszentrum” (MSNZ)) will house independent research groups led by both medical and life sciences researchers and is dedicated to excellent tumor research. It will interact closely with the Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) Mainfranken, a joint institution of the University Hospital and the University of Würzburg focusing on cancer medicine and tumor research. For the MSNZ, we look for

Clinician Scientists (MD)


  • Joint appointment by the MSNZ and a clinical department or a research group of the University or the University Hospital
  • Intellectual support and funding for your own research project including funding for a technician or a Ph.D. student and consumables

  • For Clinician Scientist: License to practice medicine in Germany, i.e. “Approbation als * Arzt/Ärztin” or “Berufserlaubnis nach §10 der Bundesärzteordnung”

We are broadly interested in current topics of molecular oncology, including, for example, the role of deregulated transcription and protein turnover in tumorigenesis, interactions of tumor cells with the host immune system as well as new chemical-biological approaches to control tumor growth. Information about the research groups and clinical departments that participate in the MSNZ can be found at
