The University of Chicago’s Department of Medicine, Section of Rheumatology, and the Committee on Immunology are searching for full-time faculty members at any rank to join an established, integrated and vibrant immunology community. We are interested in applicants from any area of immunology and especially welcome those whose research uses current molecular and computational approaches to understand important questions in autoimmunity, tolerance, peripheral immunity, lymphocyte biology, and inflammation. There are ample resources and opportunities for developing impactful research programs that seek to understand fundamental immunological mechanisms and how they contribute to human disease pathogenesis. In addition to research, successful applicants will be expected to engage in teaching and supervision of trainees and students, including undergraduates and graduates. Clinical appointees will have a mix of inpatient and outpatient clinical responsibilities primarily at our Hyde Park campus. Academic rank, tenure and compensation (including a generous package of fringe benefits) are dependent upon qualifications.
We anticipate that appointees will develop close interactions with other departments, divisions, centers and institutes at the University of Chicago, and the University of Chicago Medical Center Argonne National Laboratory, and/or the Marine Biological Laboratory. Appointees will have access to state-of-the-art core facilities and to outstanding colleagues and graduate students affiliated with numerous degree-granting programs within and outside the biological sciences including molecular engineering and the physical sciences. Competitive research space and start-up funding will be available. 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.
