The Department of Medicine is seeking applications for a part-time, tenure/non-tenure or clinical track position for the Division of Rheumatology & Clinical Immunology at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor level. Rank & Tenure status 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. This position also includes time to conduct research in a field of rheumatology and clinical immunology. Applicants will be expected to secure independent funding within three years to maintain research activities. We enjoy a collaborative relationship with Shands Hospital and pride ourselves in professional and cooperative interdisciplinary care.

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.
