Position description

The Department of Pathology (http://pathology.ucsd.edu) at the University of California San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body and is seeking research faculty in a discipline relevant to organ transplantation to join the new Center for Transplantation Science.

The Department is comprised of 65 faculty members and is currently ranked 14th nationally among Pathology departments in NIH funding, with active research programs in cancer biology, immunology, placental biology, microbiology, and neurobiology. The successful candidate will benefit from the highly stimulating and collaborative environment within the department and the Center. The UCSD Pathology Department is interested in candidates who have demonstrated commitment to research excellence and participation in teaching, research, service and building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

The Center for Transplantation Science is a new interdepartmental research program designed to foster clinical, translational, and basic science research related to transplantation. Relevant research areas including immunology, computational biology, cellular biology, vascular biology, and regenerative medicine are among the areas of focus that would be considered to fit within the interests and scope of the Center. The successful candidate will benefit from the highly stimulating and collaborative environment within the Department and the Center.

The opportunity exists for qualified individuals to have clinical effort in Laboratory and Genomic Medicine or Anatomic Pathology, particularly related to transplantation.

The successful candidates will be responsible for developing and maintaining an independent extramurally-funded and productive research program in transplantation science. It is expected that the research will have the potential for collaboration with other Departments in the School of Medicine. Additional responsibilities will include providing high-quality training and teaching within the School of Medicine.

The appropriate series and appointment at the Associate or Full Professor level will be based on the candidate's background and experience. Series will include 50% Ladder Rank / 50% In-Residence with secured extramural funding or 100% Ladder Rank.
