The Faculty of Medicine is one of the four founding faculties of the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen. With its non-clinical facilities and the research and teaching area corresponding to the organizational units of the University Hospital, it is one of the largest medical training and research institutions in the state of Baden-Württemberg.
Tübingen is one of the world’s leading science locations in the fields of
The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Tübingen is looking for excellent, highly motivated Clinician Scientists (up to eight positions) for participation in the new German Research Foundation-funded Clinician Scientist Program Medical Innovation through Interdisciplinarity Clinician Scientist program (MINT-CS). The goal is to support the qualification of scientifically and clinically competent physicians of all disciplines in basic and translational research.
Clinician scientists are translationally trained physicians who at the same time pursue a structured and long-term scientific career. A significant hurdle lies in the "researching clinician" career path. There is rarely any time left over after the daily clinical tasks are completed. As a result, there are not enough clinician scientists.
The MINT-CS program supports eight participants with personnel resources (fixed share of 50% of the total working time for scientific work, the remaining 50% will be covered by the host clinical department)) and flexible funds (3.000 Euro per year). The first phase of the program will start in summer 2023.
The program supports Clinician scientists for three years. During this time, you will be accompanied by a structured program, trained in key skills (third-party funding acquisition, leadership skills, patent matters, etc.) and supported in mobility projects. All participants will select a clinical and a scientific supervisor. The proposed research project should be related to basic sciences.
