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 Professorship (W2) (6 years/tenure track) of Artificial intelligence-based telemonitoring commencing as soon as possible.

The professorship will be located at the Medical Clinic and Policlinic I at the University Hospital of LMU Munich.

This professorship is established in the context of the Hightech Agenda Bavaria. Willingness to engage in scientific exchange and to initiate joint research activities/projects with the different partner sites of the AI hub Health in Bavaria is required.

The professorship will follow innovative interdisciplinary approaches of artificial intelligence (AI) in combination with clinical applications. Data and AI-based approaches of telemonitoring will constitute the central focus of the research activities. To achieve this, the professorship will establish the methodological principles and develop the necessary data bases in collaboration with clinical partners. The professorship will develop methods to implement AI-based telemonitoring approaches into clinical practice and for outcome-oriented evaluation. In addition, the professorship will contribute to teaching in human medicine and to development of interdisciplinary courses. In this context, the qualified and liable use of AI by physicians in clinical practice and in clinical research will be a central focus.

Technical and methodological core topics of the professorship comprise:

  • Assessment and evaluation of biosignals for risk prediction and stratification through telemonitoring approaches and its implementation into personalized decision-making algorithms
  • Application of biosignals to tailor therapy escalation or de-escalation or to intensify or de-intensify monitoring of critically ill patients with the use of electronic health records (EHR)
  • Implantable devices and wearables for surveillance of therapy, for prediction of adverse effects as well as for out-of-hospital patient care
  • Acquisition and analysis of „patient reported outcomes” and dynamic patient monitoring
  • AI-based biosignal interpretation for patient triage in the emergency room and ICU
  • Telemonitoring for triage in post-transplant patients.

LMU Munich seeks to appoint a highly qualified junior academic to this professorship and, therefore, especially encourages early-career scholars to apply. Prerequisites for this position are a university degree and a doctoral degree or a comparable specific qualification. With an excellent record in research and teaching to date, prospective candidates will have demonstrated the potential for an outstanding academic career.

The initial appointment will be for six years. After a minimum of three years, it can be converted into a permanent position pending a positive evaluation of the candidate’s performance in research and teaching as well as his or her personal aptitude and if all legal conditions are met.

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.
