The University of Washington’s (UW) Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology is seeking applicants for one full-time (1.0 FTE) faculty position at the University of Washington Medical Center Montlake or Harborview Medical Center sites. This position will be at the rank of Assistant Professor (without tenure due to funding [WOT]) or Associate Professor (WOT) and may begin as soon as October 2024. Salary and academic appointment at University of Washington will be commensurate with experience, qualifications, and academic rank. Assistant professors (WOT) are eligible for multi-year appointments and associate professors (WOT) hold indefinite appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30). Faculty with 12-month service periods are paid for 11 months of service over a 12-month period (July-June), meaning the equivalent of one month is available for paid time off. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.

Clinical duties will be based primarily at UWMC-Montlake or Harborview, attending on the inpatient nephrology consult service and outpatient clinics. The number of weeks on consult service and the number of outpatient clinics will be based on the need and at the discretion of the Section Head and Division Head. Although this position’s clinical focus will be on general nephrology, we expect the person in this position will develop one to two clinical subspecialty areas of interest and expertise. This position would also see patients at one or more outpatient dialysis units, and at the discretion of the Division Head and Section Head.

This position would be responsible for teaching nephrology fellows, medical residents and medical students during time as attending, as well as participate in divisional teaching conferences as assigned.

This range is inclusive of base salary provided through the UW Physicians (UWP) practice plan, in addition to base salary provided by the University.
