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 Neurology (Chair) at the Department of Neurology with Friedrich-Baur-Institut commencing on April 1st, 2022.

The Professorship is fully responsible for research and teaching in Neurology. This Professorship is attached to the position as Head of the Department of Neurology and the Friedrich-Baur-Institut at the University Hospital of LMU Munich.

The Department covers the whole spectrum of neurology. In patientcare, research and teaching, the Department of Neurology cooperates closely with the Institute for Stroke and Dementia Research (ISD) and the Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology (INIM). The successful candidate should have a research focus that complements these institutions and that supplements and strengthens the other existing clinical and scientific core areas (for example, the SyNergy excellence cluster, the German Center for Vertigo and Balance Disorders and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases). We are therefore looking for a candidate with strong integrative leadership skills, excellent communication skills and proven clinical and scientific leadership experience and expertise.

Prerequisites for this position are a university degree, a doctoral degree or a comparable specific qualification, a board certification as a specialist in neurology (Facharzt für Neurologie), 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, potentially be disregarded if a professor has already been a chair of a department in a fully tenured professorship (C4-/W3-status) with the authorization to bill private patients.

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.

People with disabilities who are equally as qualified as other applicants will receive preferential treatment.


Please submit your application (curriculum vitae, scientific career, references, certificates, a list of publications and lectures, external funds) as well as a structural concept for the chair in neurology, taking into account the scientific and clinical environment, and a short application form (see http://www.med.uni-muenchen.de) to the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Ludwig-Maximilians-UniversitätMünchen, Bavariaring 19, 80336 Munich, Germany, no later than July 8th 2021.
