The Division of Renal-Electrolyte and Hypertension in the Department of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Assistant Professor positions in the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of investigation of mechanisms of kidney disease.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include studying the molecular and cellular basis of immunology, physiology, cell biology, metabolism, genetics or pathology, or applying modern experimental or discovery approaches to problems of kidney disease.

Exceptional Ph.D. applicants with a focus on kidney-related science will be considered. Physician candidates should be board certified/eligible in Nephrology. Appropriate resources will be made available to accelerate the applicant's research program.
