This position is meant primarily for a research-intensive recruit, either in basic or clinical science research, with commensurate protected time and research resources. The division has a thriving research program with NIH-funded principal investigators in the area of mineral bone disorders and post-transplant complications. The division also has NIH-supported site investigators in the areas of adherence improvement, chronic kidney disease and glomerulonephritis, plus other research projects in the areas of CRRT and photopheresis. The adjacent adult nephrology division has a long-standing basic science interest in renal development. Washington University is consistently ranked in the top 5 for NIH funding. The division has consistently been listed in the US News and World Report top Pediatric Nephrology programs. Faculty members practice at the attached St Louis Children’s Hospital (ranked in all 10 specialties in 2022 US News and World Report), which is a part of the very large Barnes-Jewish Care health care system. The Wash U Medical Center campus is located next to the 1371 acre Forest Park, one of the largest public parks in the country.
