The Department of Pediatrics at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin, in partnership with the Dell Children's Medical Center, is seeking faculty members who specialize in Pediatric Hepatology with experience in liver transplantation to join the Division of Gastroenterology. Pediatric Hepatology candidates will be recruited at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor on a tenured or non-tenured track. Candidates should have an M.D., or equivalent, or M.D./Ph.D., with board certification in Pediatric Gastroenterology with training in hepatology.

We are particularly interested in candidates who are interested in building a Hepatology program and eventual Liver Transplant program. Clinical responsibilities will be primarily Pediatric Hepatology but will also include general pediatric gastroenterology as the program grows and develops. Diagnoses include the array of pediatric liver disease including biliary atresia, Alagille syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, primary and secondary sclerosing cholangitis, CF-associated liver disease, chronic infectious hepatitis, liver cysts and tumors, NAFLD, various metabolic liver disease (alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency, tyrosinemia, Niemann Pick, Wilson's disease), liver failure, portal vein thrombosis, autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease and liver disease associated with congenital heart disease. The hepatologist will provide support for the Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Transplant program, our new Kidney Transplant program and a developing Bone Marrow Transplant program.
