Associate or Full Professor - Tenure Track - "Perinatal Research Center Director" - Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Department of Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seek candidates for an Associate or Full Professor position in the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of basic or translational perinatal research. The successful candidate will serve as the Director of a newly formed Perinatal Research Center (PRC). Applicants must have an M.D. and/or Ph.D degree.
Teaching responsibilities may include working with medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and other trainees.
Research or scholarship responsibilities may include an integrative approach to research in perinatal biology that extends before and after birth. Within the center, investigators from different fields will participate in collaborative multidisciplinary research with the goal of improving outcomes associated with perinatal/neonatal diseases and to understand the fundamentals of developmental biology. The mission of faculty in the PRC will not only be to foster innovative research focused on fundamental questions in developmental biology and the developmental origins of health and disease, but also to address improvement of neonatal outcomes, health care delivery, and health inequities.
The PRC Director will engage, lead, and energize the scientific community across the CHOP Research Institute to build new programs and collaborations at CHOP and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The PRC Director will be provided with space, financial resources and new faculty positions to both advance their own research program and develop a world-class investigative group committed to the mission of the Perinatal Research Center.
We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are EOEs. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
