Career & Funding

Clinician Scientist Programs at the University Medicine Rostock

  1. To improve the recruiting of young medical scientific researchers and to support their specific challenges concerning compatibility of research and clinical work, the University Medicine Rostock (UMR) established a Rostock Academy for Clinician Scientists (RACS). In order to create efficient incentives for an academic/research career besides medical training, 15 positions for an advanced training in a clinical specialty/subspecialty (ärztliche Weiterbildungsstellen) are advertised. The key element of the program is the research protected time of two years within the specialist/subspecialist training time to conduct a theoretical research project. The program consists of an individual clinical, scientific and soft skill educational curriculum and is structured into a Junior and an Advanced Clinician Scientist Program. The positions are available now: job advertisement. More information about the Rostock Academy for Clinician Scientists (in German).
     
  2. In addition to RACS, the CTNR offers two Clinician Scientist positions in the Neurosciences for the research protected time of two years within the specialist/subspecialist training time to conduct a theoretical research project in the field of Neurosciences. The program consists of an individual clinical, scientific and soft skill educational curriculum under the umbrella of the Rostock Academy for Clinician Scientists (RACS, see above).
