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 Nuclear Medicine (Chair) commencing on January 1st, 2024.

The Professorship is fully responsible for research and teaching in Nuclear Medicine. This Professorship is attached to the position as Head of the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital of LMU Munich.

The Department is one of the largest in Germany and covers the whole spectrum of Nuclear Medicine. Preservation and further development of the cooperation with the research networks of the medical faculty and the university as well as with the German Centres for Health Research located at LMU Munich, the excellence cluster SyNergy and the large animal research facility ICON, currently under construction, is expected. 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 Nuclear Medicine (Facharzt für Nuklearmedizin), 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.
