Universitätsklinikum Essen / Universität Duisburg-Essen / University Hospital Essen / University of Duisburg-Essen
We are one of the youngest universities in Germany and think in terms of
unlimited possibilities instead of possible limitations. Located in the heart
of the Ruhr metropolis, our 11 faculties develop ideas for the future. We are
strong in research and teaching, we embrace diversity, promote academic
potential, and we are highly committed to educational equality.
University Medicine Essen is on its way to becoming a SMART Hospital, where digital technologies will enable employees to
further improve patient care, research and education.We are convinced that truly personalized medicine can only be realized,
if we combine digitization in medicine with artificial intelligence. We have therefore decided to establish an Institute for
Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Medicine. In its founding stage, this institute will be staffed with four professorships dealing with
different aspects of AI in medicine.We envision these professorships to synergistically lead the successful development of our
innovative concept. It is our aim to identify highly motivated individuals with a broad and complementary range of expertise
with whom we undertake this journey.
