Successful candidates will establish a highly competitive, independent, extramurally-funded, potentially translational basic science research programs be highly interactive, and participate in graduate and undergraduate medical education. We are interested in physician-scientists who would have some anatomic or clinical pathology service responsibilities and excellent PhD candidates who are not physicians. We are particularly interested in faculty interested in applying image processing, bioinformatic, and computational approaches or the use of genetic models of human disease, including imaging-based computational phenomics. One position is targeted towards computation, which can be linked to a new image informatics and visualization initiative; we also encourage use of our new Zebrafish Functional Genomics Core facility. Departmental interests include genetic and reverse genetic models of human disease, viral oncogenesis, cancer, mechanisms of mutation, PCOS, and image informatics. We have an exceptionally collaborative research/clinical environment within the Department, College of Medicine and across Penn State University campuses. Physician-scientists should have an MD or equivalent degree, have completed residency training, be Board-certified or eligible, and be eligible for a PA medical license.  Applicants should apply online at:  http://tinyurl.com/qc9urxm.

Please submit a statement describing your research plan, accomplishments and strategy for development of an extramurally-funded program along with your CV and names and contact information for 3 references.
