Position Description

The Division of Rheumatology, in the Department of Pediatrics, at the University of Washington, is seeking candidates for a full-time position at the level of Assistant Professor (without tenure by reason of funding), Associate Professor (without tenure by reason of funding), or full Professor (without tenure by reason of funding) on the Clinician-Scholar track.  Rank is commensurate with experience and qualifications. This is 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. The anticipated start date is Summer 2024.

The faculty member will engage in pediatric rheumatology clinical care in the outpatient, inpatient, and outreach settings, as well as immunosuppressive medication management and intraarticular aspirations/injections.

The successful candidate will spend 80% time in the clinical setting and 20% time in administrative and scholarly pursuit including teaching and mentoring.  Clinical effort may be reduced, commensurate with grant funding.

The Division of Rheumatology, at Seattle Children’s Hospital and Research Institute and the University of Washington, is world-renowned as one of the oldest programs in the world and is the largest in the United States – with 13 physicians and 4 nurses that serve the states of Washington, Alaska, and Idaho. Our diverse population of patients come primarily from these states, and represents a wide range of ethnicities and backgrounds as well as unique and rare diseases. The Division has an active research program at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Research Institute with a focus on autoimmune diseases and collaborates closely with Seattle Children’s Therapeutics, the Benaroya Research Institute, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and the Seattle area biotech industry. In addition to investigator-initiated studies, the division is actively involved in the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) projects, is a member of Pediatric Rheumatology Collaborative Research Group (PRCSG) and participates in pharmaceutical clinical trials. Seattle Children’s serves as the Coordinating Center for the Pediatric Rheumatology Care and Outcomes Improvement Network (PR-COIN). The division has an outstanding fellowship training program which has been supported by an NIH T32 for decades.

All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.

The base salary range for this position will be: $12,500 - $25,000 per month ($150,000 - $300,000 annually) commensurate with experience and qualifications, or as mandated by a U.S. Department of Labor prevailing wage determination. This range is inclusive of base salary provided through the Children’s University Medical Group (CUMG) practice plan, in addition to base salary provided by the University. Please note that only compensation provided by the University is included in University benefit determinations and calculations.
