The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seek candidates for an Associate or Full Professor position in the non-tenure clinician-educator track. Rank will be commensurate with experience. The successful applicant will be accomplished in the area of Hematopathology. Responsibilities include leading the Joint Program in Hematopathology (JPHP) between the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Pathology Departments, attending on the hematopathology service, working with related laboratories such as molecular diagnostics and flow cytometry on assay development, teaching of medical students, pathology residents, fellows and technologists, and scholarly activities. Applicants must have an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in clinical care, education, and research. Board certification in Anatomic Pathology and/or Clinical Pathology from the American Board of Pathology as well as certification in Hematopathology. Eligibility/licensing in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is required.
The JPHP will maximize resources to provide outstanding clinical diagnostic services, comprehensive and integrated training of pathology residents, advanced fellowship training programs, and research activities. Coupled with major genomics initiatives at Penn’s Center for Personalized Diagnostics (CPD) and CHOP’s Division of Genomic Diagnostics, this fully integrated hematopathology program will enable us to leverage our considerable strengths and resources to make our program the destination of choice for faculty, fellows and residents. Given the major advancements in both adult and pediatric hematopathology and the adoptive T cell therapy trials that have met with such recent clinical success, integration of hematopathology services across the spectrum of clinical programs at Penn and CHOP will ensure that this new joint program will be in the forefront of hematopathogy programs.
The ideal candidate will have relevant training, clinical and administrative experience in the field of Hematopathology, with additional interests or expertise in molecular pathology and/or genomics. The Perelman School of Medicine is known for its emphasis on translational research and the candidate will be expected to have a demonstrated track record in scholarly activity and ability to further develop a strong, collaborative research program.
The primary practice location is the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania but will also entail clinical service at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia as part of the Joint Program in Hematopathology, affording faculty a very broad array of clinical material at two of the top adult and children’s hospitals in the country. The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine has made major investments in next generation sequencing-based molecular diagnostics, and on-going adoptive T cell therapy clinical trials for adult and childhood leukemias affording hematopathologists numerous opportunities for scholarly work in cutting-edge basic and translational research efforts.
We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
The University of Pennsylvania and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are EOEs. Minorities/Women/Individuals with disabilities/Protected Veterans are encouraged to apply.
