Jobs are expected to go at Aberdeen University medical school in a bid to save £1.5m.
The university is offering voluntary severance and early retirement to academic staff.
It said the cuts are necessary to "secure the long-term success" of the medical school.
A University of Aberdeen spokeswoman said: "The university has opened a voluntary severance and early retirement scheme for academic staff, with a focus on a small number of areas.
"We appreciate this this is an unsettling time for some staff, and we are committed to working with them to address any issues of individual concern.
"In the meantime, we would like to reassure all our staff and stakeholders of our commitment to maintaining a world-class, research-intensive school with a student experience of outstanding quality."
