Assistant/Associate/Full Professor - Rheumatology
The Department of Medicine is seeking applications for a full-time tenure or clinical track position for the Division of Rheumatology & Clinical Immunology at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor level. Rank & tenure will be determined based on education and experience.
Responsibilities will include patient care in the inpatient and outpatient settings as well as supervision/teaching of Rheumatology Fellows, residents, and medical students. Along with general Rheumatology clinics, successful applicants will be expected to participate in a weekly half-day multidisciplinary clinic specializing in either muscle disease or vasculitis and to collaborate with a basic scientist in the capacity of "clinical mentor" for one or more research trainees in our NIH-funded T32 training program. An interest in translational research is highly desirable. We enjoy a collaborative relationship with Shands Hospital and pride ourselves in professional and cooperative interdisciplinary care. The UF Department of Medicine is a national leader in cancer, cardiology, gastroenterology, kidney disorders, and pulmonology. In addition, UF Health Shands Hospital is ranked among the top-50 in eight specialties in the 2010 edition of America's Best Hospitals, published by U.S. News & World Report. Resources available for professional development at the University of Florida Health Sciences Center include leadership, education, and research tracks within a Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI), formal mentorship programs, and supported opportunities for teaching and research. These faculty positions will be based at our University teaching hospital with a potential option for part-time patient care duties at our immediately adjacent VA Hospital. Both hospitals serve a designated shortage area and/or a medically undeserved area/population.
Requisite attributes include a commitment to service, a strong sense of teamwork and a desire to train tomorrow's doctors. Substantial start-up packages are available for appropriate research applicants.
The Gainesville area has superb weather, inexpensive living, nationally ranked schools, and multiple year-round recreational opportunities. Foreign national candidates whose employment conditions meet federal and University requirements under an immigrant classification are eligible to apply.
