Open Until Filled Yes
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. The UNC-CH Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine is seeking a physician-scientist for a translational research/translational medicine tenure-track position that will interface the basic science research programs and clinical departments in the School of Medicine. This new position represents an exciting opportunity in the Division, which requires application of molecular and cellular pathobiologic findings. A knowledge base of immunology, especially as it relates to glomerular autoimmune disease, is an integral part of the disease-focused programs. The research role necessitates a wide spectrum of research and teaching skills that encompass the full range of molecular biology approaches, with special focus on the molecular basis of inheritance and systems immunology. In addition, experience in preparing and obtaining NIH and foundational research grants and designing and overseeing mechanism-based, interventional clinical trials, with a demonstrated record of academic investigation, is highly preferred. The physician role will require comprehensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with glomerular disorders. The successful candidate will also become an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in order to serve as a mentor to doctoral students in the Molecular and Cellular Pathology Graduate Program. This position involves active participation and leadership in a large research group that is committed to investigating new approaches to answer ongoing questions that pertain not only to glomerular disease, but also to the general fields of autoimmunity, inflammation and basic neutrophil and monocyte biology.
