Department of Surgery – Associate or Assistant Professor, PhD Investigator

Job ID: 46414
Location: Chicago, Illinois

The Department of Surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine seeks a full-time tenure track Investigator at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. This person will help grow our federally funded research program, consistent with departmental and university missions. S/he will continue to develop and sustain ongoing collaborative relationships with research leadership throughout the department and the university. 

Qualified candidates may be a scientist or physician-scientist, with a PhD (with or without an MD), and must have an established record of extramural funding to support research efforts in the general areas of inflammation, immunology, and/or tissue healing, as these relate to surgical diseases. For physician applicants, additional requirements include: (1) board-certification or eligibility by the American Board of Surgery and pertinent subspecialty, if applicable; (2) completion of an accredited fellowship or equivalent training in their respective area of practice, and (3) eligibility to obtain permanent Illinois licensure. S/he must have federal grant funding with the potential of developing a National Research Service Award Institutional Research Training Program (T32) in the department, and be willing to engage in collaborative projects in basic/translational science and clinical research. 

Located at Northwestern Medicine’s downtown campus, the department offers state-of-the-art facilities and the opportunity to collaborate with experts across various fields of study. Northwestern Medicine is one of the premier academic medical systems in the nation, and the Department of Surgery is positioned among leading surgery departments in NIH funding. Northwestern University and Northwestern Memorial Hospital are both highly ranked nationally, and the Department of Surgery has long-standing collaborations with numerous educational, academic, and professional organizations. This rich environment provides an unmatched opportunity to join a thriving team of clinicians, educators and researchers. 

The start date is negotiable and the position will remain open until filled.
