Posting Department: Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Expire Date: 10/10/2014
The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Assistant or Associate Professor positions in either the tenure track or the non-tenure clinician-educator track. Track and rank will be commensurate with experience. The successful applicant will have experience in the field of Personalized Diagnostics with a focus on Bioinformatics. Applicants must have an M.D and/or Ph.D or equivalent degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research, clinical care, and education.

The newly formed Center for Personalized Diagnostics will provide clinical grade high throughput sequencing based diagnostics in a CAP/CLIA environment to enhance our delivery of personalized diagnostics of a wide variety of diseases. The Center will also serve as a nidus of faculty expertise in the area of genomic analysis, bioinformatics, cancer genetics, and related areas to facilitate the development of new methods, new technologies, and new applications.

Faculty members will lead a group of software developers and trainees at all levels to develop pipelines for analysis of the large amounts of sequence data derived from our clinical sequencing program. This person will also participate in developing platforms capable of integrating sequence information with other diagnostic information and developing integrated reports that will be clinically useful. This will include development and teaching of new software, new methods, and new applications, all areas that can be supported in part by extramural grant funds generated through translational/collaborative efforts.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
