PROGRAM FOR LIVER DISEASE RESEARCH

DEPARTMENT OF INFLAMMATION AND IMMUNITY

 

 


The Program for Liver Disease Research (Laura Nagy, Ph.D., Director) in the Department of Inflammation and Immunity in the Lerner Research Institute at the Cleveland Clinic seeks experienced investigators who use multidisciplinary approaches to determine the underlying causes of and develop new treatments for liver diseases and/or systemic diseases that prominently involve the liver, particularly alcohol- and non-alcohol associated liver disease. Individuals must be able to communicate across fields to tackle fundamental issues in this field, and those with demonstrated potential for creativity and excellence in the fields of multi-organ physiology (liver-brain, liver-gut axes, reticulo-endothelial system as examples) or experts in targeting metabolism (genetic and environment influences), fibrosis, stem cell biology, immunology, and vascular biology are ideal candidates. Individuals with interest and experience in computational methods, -omics technologies, and use of human biospecimens in the context of liver biology are also desired.  

Individuals will receive faculty appointments at the Associate or Full Staff  (equivalent to Associate or Full Professor) in the Department of Inflammation and Immunity in the Lerner Research Institute and joint appointments in clinical institutes, as appropriate. New recruits will join a highly collaborative environment within the Department of Inflammation and Immunity (https://www.lerner.ccf.org/inflammation-immunity/) and the Northern Ohio Alcohol Center (https://www.lerner.ccf.org/alcoholcenter/). The successful candidate will take advantage of Liver Center expertise and biobank resources to investigate and develop new diagnostics and therapies and to mentor junior members in the Center, with opportunities for leadership growth. Cleveland Clinic provides exceptional opportunities for partnerships with basic and translational investigators, as well as with clinicians from multiple specialties. Outstanding facilities, generous start-up funds, and ongoing operational support will be provided. Research programs are supported by world class core facilities with the opportunity for growth with the substantial expansion of the Lerner Research Institute through the formation of  the Global Center for Pathogen Research and Human Health.

 

The Lerner Research Institute, with >1800 researchers in 12 departments and an annual budget of >$400 million, has a commitment to excellence in basic, translational and clinical research, with an emphasis on interactive, collaborative research. Faculty typically also become members of the Molecular Medicine Graduate Training Program and other graduate and medical training programs at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, providing access to excellent Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows.

 

Candidates should submit a complete curriculum vitae and brief statement of research interests and names of 3 references by email to: Sarah Krafcik (krafcis@ccf.org)

Cleveland Clinic is pleased to be an equal opportunity employment/affirmative action employer: Women/Minorities/Veterans/Individuals with Disabilities. Smoke/drug free environment.
