The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Division of Rheumatology in the Department of Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seek candidates for an Associate or Full Professor position in either the non-tenure clinician-educator track or the tenure track. Track and rank will be commensurate with experience. Applicants must have an M.D or M.D./Ph.D. degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research, education, and clinical care.

We are seeking an experienced academician to serve as Chief of the Division of Pediatric Rheumatology.

Notable clinical programs include the Center for Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatic Diseases and the Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome (AMPS) program. The Division has nationally prominent laboratory and clinical research programs in autoimmune disease, with particular emphasis on systemic lupus erythematosus, Henoch-Schonlein purpura, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and macrophage activation syndrome. In addition, the Division has a longstanding ACGME-accredited fellowship program that consistently attracts the top candidates in the country. The successful candidate will have opportunities for major interactions with the Division of Allergy and Immunology, the Division of Human Genetics, the Department of Pathology, the Center for Applied Genomics, and other relevant groups at CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania and will benefit from resources and a stimulating, collaborative environment within the Department of Pediatrics, throughout CHOP, and across the University of Pennsylvania.

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