As one of Europe’s leading research universities, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich is committed to the highest international standards of excellence in research and teaching. Building on its more than 500-year-long tradition, it offers a broad spectrum that covers all areas of knowledge within its 18 Faculties, ranging from the humanities, law, economics and social sciences, to medicine and the natural sciences.
The Faculty of Medicine invites applications for a
Full Professorship (W3) of Paediatric Surgery (Chair)
commencing on April 1st, 2020.
The professorship represents the speciality of paediatric surgery in its full extend in research and teaching. It is also combined with the directorship of the Department of Paediatric Surgery in the Dr. von Hauner Children’s Hospital at the University Hospital of LMU Munich.
The department treats patients of the complete spectrum of subspecialties of paediatric surgery with a special emphasis on surgery of neonatal malformations and paediatric surgical oncology. The high expertise in these two fields shall be preserved or even intensified in the future. In the context of the planned new construction of the Childrenís Hospital at the Grosshadern Campus a close interaction of paediatric surgery with all subspecialties of paediatrics and with the organ-oriented surgical specialities of adult surgery is anticipated. Here the new Professor of Paediatric Surgery should take over a coordinating leadership and therefore should have high communicative skills. Thus, the faculty searches for a paediatric surgeon with an extensive leadership experience as well as with a high expertise in perinatal surgery and at least in one other subspecialty of paediatric surgery.
Prerequisites for this position are a university degree, a doctoral degree or a comparable specific qualification, a board certification in paediatric surgery, teaching skills at university level, excellent academic achievements and a productive and promising research program.
The clinical duties and responsibilities of this professorship including the billing of private patients shall be reimbursed under the terms of a “Chefarztvertrag” (chairmanship contract) with a private-law contract for the professorship. This regulation can, however, be potentially disregarded when a professor has already been a chairman in a fully tenured professorship (C4-/W3-status).
LMU Munich makes a point of providing newly appointed professors with various types of support, such as welcoming services and assistance for dual career couples.
LMU Munich is an equal opportunity employer. The University continues to be very successful in increasing the number of female faculty members and strongly encourages applications from female candidates. LMU Munich intends to enhance the diversity of its faculty members. Furthermore, disabled candidates with essentially equal qualifications will be given preference.
Please submit your application (curriculum vitae, scientific career, references, certificates, a list of publications and lectures, external funds) as well as a short application form (see http://www.med.uni-muenchen.de) to the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Bavariaring 19, 80336 Munich, Germany, no later than 28.02.2019.
