Within the framework of its strategic planning, the University Medical Centre Göttingen (UMG) is pursuing the development of its focal research areas neuroscience, cardiovascular medicine, and oncology consistently with translational and systems medicinal approaches. The UMG is closely interconnected with the University faculties in the natural and biosciences, as well as the non-university research institutions at the Göttingen Campus.

The UMG is currently seeking applicants for the position of a

junior professorship
in computational statistics
(salary grade W1 tenure track W2)

to be filled as soon as possible. The appointment is initially for the duration of three years, with a view to extending the position for a further three years on the basis of a positive interim evaluation. Positive assessment of the second period as a junior professor will be followed by appointment to a permanent W2 professorship.

The junior professorship is associated with the task of setting up and leading a junior research workgroup on computational statistics at the Department of Medical Statistics (Director: Professor Tim Friede). Applicants will be expected to have completed an academically outstanding PhD or equivalent research thesis in the field of statistics, mathematics, informatics, or another related subject including strong quantitative components, along with relevant experience in the field of computational statistics. The latter should be documented in form of independent scientific research in the field as well as appropriate publications. Furthermore, experience in teaching and an interest in collaborations within the research foci of the UMG are expected.

The requirements for employment pertaining to junior professorships are laid out in §30 Lower Saxony Higher Education Act (NHG) in its current applicable version.

Applications by scientists from countries other than Germany are encouraged.

Part-time occupation may be made possible under certain circumstances.

The UMG strives to increase the proportion of women in the workplace and as such, specifically invites qualified women to apply. Disabled persons will be considered preferentially, subject to suitability.
