The University Medical Center Tübingen is part of the University of Excellence Tübingen. It provides medical services at the highest level and covers the entire spectrum of modern medicine, research, teaching and clinical care.
The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Tübingen (University Hospital for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Department of General Psychiatry and Psychotherapy with Polyclinic) invites applications for a position as
Full Professor (W3) for Computational Psychiatry
The successful candidate is expected to represent the field of Computational Psychiatry in research and teaching at the highest level. The aim is to develop innovative data analysis methods for the integration of data collected with very different approaches (e.g. clinical data, psychometry, neuropsychology, brain function with EEG and NIRS, MRI-based imaging of the brain, genetics, epigenetics, microbiome). Thereby the classification of common mental diseases (e.g. depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, addiction, Alzheimer’s disease) should be improved and individualized treatment algorithms should be developed and tested with regard to the prediction of treatment success.
Cooperation with other (neuro)scientific working groups at the Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, the center for mental health, the Tübingen Neurocampus, the DZNE, the Faculty of Medicine and the University of Tübingen, the Max Planck Institutes for Biological Cybernetics and Intelligent Systems, the Cluster of Excellence Machine Learning and the Cyber Valley Tübingen/Stuttgart is expected.
In the field of teaching, comprehensive experience evaluated as outstanding, and involvement, particularly in view of innovative curricula in the degree programs taught at the Tübingen Faculty of Medicine, as well as the active participation in lectures and other teaching formats are expected. Required qualifications include a PhD or equivalent international degree and postdoctoral qualifications equivalent to the requirements for tenure. This includes evidence of teaching effectiveness.
The University of Tübingen is particularly interested in increasing the number of women in research and teaching and therefore strongly encourages women candidates to apply. In line with its internationalization agenda, the university welcomes applications from researchers outside Germany.
Applications from equally qualified candidates with disabilities will be given preference. The German-language advertisement is the sole legally binding advertisement of this position.
Please submit your entire application using the web-based application platform https://berufungsportal.medizin.uni-tuebingen.de. The deadline for applications is January 28th, 2021.
Enquiries may be directed to the dean.
