The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Assistant or Associate Professor position in the non-tenure academic-clinician track. The successful applicant will have experience in the field of Clinical Pathology with a focus on Hematopathology. Responsibilities include diagnostic reporting of hematopoietic tissue specimens (including lymph nodes, bone marrows, peripheral smears), interpretation of flow cytometry, cytogenetic and molecular diagnostic studies, active interaction with clinical colleagues, and participating in quality improvement initiatives. Teaching and mentoring of medical students, pathology residents and fellows will be an integral component of the position. Candidates should be eligible for an unrestricted medical license in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The primary practice location is the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) but may also entail clinical service at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) as part of the Joint Program in Hematopathology (JPHP), thus affording the successful candidate a broad exposure to clinical material at two nationally recognized adult and pediatric hospitals. These two institutions share a single, compact campus, fostering an outstanding environment for collaborative clinical, translational and basic research. The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine has made major investments in next generation sequencing-based diagnostics at both HUP and CHOP, and numerous clinical trials, such as adoptive T cell therapy for adult and childhood leukemias, to afford hematopathologists numerous opportunities for collaborative scholarly activity.
Applicants must have an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in clinical care and education. American Board of Pathology certification is required in Anatomic and/or Clinical Pathology with subspecialty certification in Hematology (Hematopathology).
Faculty in the Academic Clinician track must be outstanding diagnosticians and educators and expected to develop programs supporting these missions.
