University Professorship for Ophthalmology (m/f/d) at the University Medical Center Mainz


With around 8,000 employees in a wide range of professional groups, the University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz is one of the largest employers in Rhineland-Palatinate. We care for over 300,000 patients every year – and are also an important research and training center. As a maximum care provider, we offer interested parties a wide range of opportunities to develop professionally and personally.

At the University Medical Center Mainz, the University Professorship for Ophthalmology is the successor to Univ.-Prof. Dr. Norbert Pfeiffer (analogous to Sal. Gr. W3 LBesG)
to occupy.

We are looking for a proven personality (m/f/d) who visibly represents the field of ophthalmology in its entirety and in interdisciplinary networking in research, teaching and healthcare. The professorship is linked to the management of the eye clinic and polyclinic; close cooperation with clinical partner disciplines in a future head and neck center is required. Therefore, in addition to the professional qualifications, a high level of management skills is expected. This includes a cooperative, team-oriented and creative way of working, strong communication skills and the willingness to drive the further development of the clinic in an integrative manner and with one’s own impulses. The non-professional skills of the shortlisted candidates will be individually evaluated during the selection process; further information will be provided with the invitation to the hearing.

In the area of ​​patient care, the eye clinic has a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services, the professional organization of which is part of the professorship’s range of tasks. One focus of the clinic is glaucoma, so expertise in the treatment of the anterior segment of the eye is required; specialization in the area of ​​glaucoma surgery is desirable. The establishment of other focal areas such as tumor surgery and the expansion of the existing cornea bank are also part of the job profile. In the future, an increased number of patients is expected due to demographic change and the age-related onset of many eye diseases, while at the same time the field of ophthalmology is changing towards more outpatient patient care. The tasks of the professorship therefore include the development and implementation of appropriate treatment options. A prerequisite for employment is recognition as a specialist in ophthalmology.
