Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of Germany’s leading research universities and a progressive campus university, which uniquely covers the entire range of the major fields of science in one place. The dynamic get-together of subjects and subject cultures offers both researchers and students special chances for interdisciplinary co-operations in equal measure.
The Hospital of Ruhr-Universität Bochum (UK-RUB) is a merger of qualified hospitals and special medical institutes in the area of Bochum, Herne and East-Westphalia-Lippe co-operating with Ruhr-Universität. The UK-RUB is synonymous for health care on the utmost level and excellent research and teaching in the field of university medicine. With effect as of September 30th, 2020, Johannes Wesling Klinikum Minden, university hospital of Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB), has a vacancy:

University professor (W3-analogue) as Director

Johannes Wesling Klinikum is part of Muehlenkreiskliniken and as a university hospital of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, together with the other university hospitals in Luebbecke, Bad Oeynhausen and Herford, responsible for the practical part of the medical education in East-Westphalia-Lippe within the framework of Bochum’s university medicine.
Being part of the association of Muehlenkreiskliniken (AÖR), the hospitals in Minden, Luebbecke, Rahden and Bad Oeynhausen treat about 200,000 patients every year. Johannes Wesling Klinikum has a total of 19 in-patient departments and five institutes.
More than 3100 in-patients were treated at the ENT clinic in 2017. The department for otolaryngology has more than 35 stationary beds on the ward used jointly with the oral and maxillofacial department.
The department focuses on the treatment of malignant tumours in the head-neck area, on congenital and vested auditory defects as well as on nose surgery. The establishment of further focuses is highly appreciated. The candidate shall have a special research focus on oncology related to the specific field and/or
on corrective surgeries to improve hearing.


The director of the university hospital is a specialist for otolaryngology and will represent and be responsible for the entire department regarding research, teaching and patient care. We are particularly looking for a candidate with comprehensive practical experience in the diagnostics and therapy of tumour diseases in the head-neck area, allergic diseases related to his/her specific field as well as auditory defects and speech disorders.

We are looking for an excellent personality with a high professional competence that stands out due to its great scientific qualification and commitment. Apart from leading experience in a position with responsibility, we do also expect an interdisciplinary co-operation with the other departments of the head
