Join us in shaping the new Medical School OWL at Bielefeld University:
Future-oriented, interprofessional, and strong in research and teaching

The Medical School EWL at Bielefeld University intends to fill at the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at the Evangelisches Klinikum Bethel (EvKB) a

Professorship for Neuroradiology (W3)

as an executive position at the earliest possible date.

At Bielefeld University, an innovative Medical School with an interdisciplinary individual and population medicine orientation and the University Medical Center East Westphalia Lippe (UMC EWL), with the Klinikum Bielefeld, Evangelisches Klinikum Bethel (EvKB), and Klinikum Lippe as holders, are established. We are looking for personalities who want to seize the development situation and its challenges as a chance and actively participate in research, teaching, patient care, and organization. We offer an exciting environment that opens up a wide range of opportunities. You will be significantly involved in the further planning and implementation of the model study program in human medicine (according to ÄApprO), as well as in implementing the "clinician" and "advanced clinician scientist" programs, and you will have the opportunity to apply innovative concepts in teaching. At the same time, you will take on a significant role in developing an interconnected, inter/nationally competitive research profile "Medicine for people with disabilities and chronic diseases". For more information, please visit

The call aims at personalities with an already established national and international profile who can represent the field of expertise in research, teaching, and patient care in its entirety.

The prerequisites are

  • specialist qualification for Radiology with a focus on Neuroradiology,
  • relevant doctorate, and additionally scientific achievements according to § 36 paras. 1; no. 4 HG NRW,
  • high-ranking scientific achievements reflected in corresponding publications and third- party funding,
  • experience with clinical studies and extensive experience in multidisciplinary and interprofessional clinical and scientific project work,
  • DeGIR/DGNR Certification Level 2, Modules E-F,
  • extensive competence in sectional imaging and interventions,
  • connectivity to the focal points and special outpatient clinics of the Neurocenter (vascular, immunological, oncological and neurodegenerative),
  • connectivity to the research profile of the Medical School EWL,
  • extensive teaching experience and experience with innovative teaching formats in the subject to be represented,
  • experience and active involvement in the equality-oriented promotion of young scientists.

As the holder of the position, you will manage the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology of the EvKB at the Campus Bielefeld-Bethel of the UMC EWL and develop it further in terms of university medicine.

We expect membership of the governing body of the university's cross-faculty and cross- departmental Core Facility MR Imaging (3T research MRI, 7T MRI optional) as well as committed participation in its establishment and the development of a relevant research program. Prior experience with novel MRI technologies is therefore desirable.
In particular, the broad clinical foci of the Neurocenter (neuro-oncology, neurovascular medicine, neuro-immunology, neuro-degeneration and epilepsy medicine) should be addressed scientifically and conceptually. In addition, the holder of the position is expected to develop projects on the topics of "Big Data", "Artificial Intelligence" and "Radiogenomics". In this context, it is desirable to be able to connect to and cooperate with the existing working groups of the faculty and those currently being established, in particular the "Clinical Radiology" working group. "Data Science" is also anchored as one of the focus of research at the Medical School.

Neuroradiology and Radiology are currently integrated in a joint model. In Neuroradiology, approx. 15,000 cross-sectional imaging examinations, approx. 230 thrombectomies and approx. 80 intracranial aneurysm treatments are performed annually. The Centre for Imaging and Intervention is equipped with a total of 15 specialist/ senior physician positions and 11 positions for doctors in training.

As the holder of the position you will also cover the clinical spectrum of care of the various neurological special outpatient clinics and the neurosurgical Medical Care Center, in addition to the advertised field of expertise. Interdisciplinary work in the context of the other university neurological subjects is also required, taking into account the integrative cooperation with the Department of Nuclear Medicine. The subject area also requires very close cooperation with the other organ- specific, surgical and conservative disciplines. In particular, participation in the stroke center and the supraregional trauma center is necessary.

The ability to work in a team and to think strategically with regard to the further expansion of a supra-regionally active neuro-center with national and supra-national significance is a prerequisite. We expect networking with other departments of the UMC EWL, other faculties of Bielefeld University, and the medical community in private practice in the region. Accordingly, we are looking for a personality with leadership experience and expertise in the entire field and excellent communication and coordination skills.

The EvKB would like to encourage female candidates, in particular, to apply for this position. Through a family-conscious personnel policy, EvKB promotes a viable balance between personal lifestyle and career. Competent support is provided in arranging childcare places.

For the appeal applies:

A private-law employment contract with the University is envisaged for the performance of the duties of the professorship. The requirements for employment follow § 36 HG. The tasks within patient care, including the right to liquidation, will be regulated via a contract for chief physicians with the EvKB.

Applications from suitable persons with severe disabilities and persons with disabilities of equal status are expressly encouraged.

Bielefeld University has received several awards for its successes within equality and is certified as a family-friendly university. The university pursues a committed equal opportunities policy concerning the appointment of professorships, among other things, and would expressly like to invite qualified female applicants to apply. Applications are treated in concert with the State Equality Act. Family times will be considered in the context of the selection decision.

The Medical School EWL and the EvKB consider equality between women and men to be one main task, and the future jobholder will be involved in its implementation. Bielefeld University supports dual-career constellations to establish a common centre of life and work.

Please submit your application by 31/08/2023 via the online appointment portal of Bielefeld University:

In addition to the usual application documents and information, we ask you to submit each a 2-page teaching and research concept paper and a concept concerning patient care. These concept papers should integrate gender- and diversity-specific content relevant to the advertised professorship. We expect a brief description of your previous and planned gender equality activities, besides, particularly for the promotion of young female scientists and the compatibility of career and family.
