The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics seeks a Clinician Investigator to join the faculty in the Division of Adolescent Medicine at the rank of Instructor, Assistant Professor, or Associate Professor. The position will involve providing direct patient care during four half-day sessions in the Johns Hopkins Chronic Fatigue Clinic each week. For the first three years, the remaining 60% of time will be protected for academic work (research, administrative, and educational activities). Academic support includes access to a wide range of career development programs and services, including 20 hours of epidemiological and biostatistics research consultation services each year. The candidate must be BC/BE in Pediatrics or Medicine-Pediatrics, and interested in working with adolescents and young adults with chronic health impairments that include myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), orthostatic intolerance, and joint hypermobility spectrum disorders, including Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

This is an opportunity to join a nationally recognized group in a dynamic academic environment.

Required to have M.D. and specialty training in Pediatrics or Medicine/Pediatrics. Fellowship training in Adolescent Medicine, clinical research training, and prior experience working with this patient population are preferred.
