The University of Chicago's Department of Medicine is searching for full-time physician scientist faculty members at any rank.  Appointees will maintain a productive research program and provide patient care directly. Other responsibilities will include teaching and supervision of trainees and students. We are interested in applicants in any area of scientific investigation and clinical subspecialty, and especially welcome those whose research focus more broadly is in the areas of immunology/inflammation, diabetes, obesity, metabolism, sleep disorders, or cancer biology.  Academic rank, track, and compensation (including a generous package of fringe benefits) are dependent upon qualifications. 

Primary appointments will be in the Department of Medicine, although we anticipate that appointees will develop close interactions with other departments, divisions, centers and institutes at the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory, and/or the Marine Biological Laboratory.  Faculty recruited through this effort will strengthen and diversify a collegial and internationally acclaimed research base that is making major contributions to the advancement of human health.

Prior to the start of employment, qualified applicants must: 1) have a medical doctorate or equivalent, and 2) hold or be eligible for medical licensure in the State of Illinois.

To be considered, those interested must apply through The University of Chicago’s Academic Recruitment job board, which uses Interfolio to accept applications: http://apply.interfolio.com/80847.  Applicants must upload: CV including bibliography, cover letter, and research statement.
