Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor - Research, Department of Hematology

The Hematology Division of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis invites applications for a physician scientist

at the level of Assistant Professor on the tenure track or Associate Professor with tenure. Candidates should have an M.D. degree

or combined M.D./Ph.D. The successful applicant will establish an independent, laboratory-based basic research program and

will participate in the in-patient and consult services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital; establishment of an outpatient clinic will be

optional. The hematology service sees a broad range of patients with classical hematological problems, including bleeding and

thrombotic disorders, myeloproliferative neoplasms, bone marrow failure syndromes, autoimmune hematologic diseases, and

hemoglobinopathies. The hematology service does not treat patients with lymphoma or acute leukemia or perform bone marrow

transplantation, although there are close collaborations with clinicians that perform these services as part of the joint

Hematology/Oncology fellowship program. Current Hematology Division faculty members conduct a wide range of biomedical

and basic science research (see http://hematology.wustl.edu/). The successful candidate will receive a generous start-up

package, excellent laboratory space, and guaranteed protected time to perform research. Faculty members have access to stateof-

the-art clinical and basic science core facilities, including microarray, proteomics and mass spectrometry, cyTOF and mass

cytometry, biomedical informatics, and mouse transgenics. Access to tissue banking at the Siteman Cancer Center, genome

engineering at the Genome Engineering & iPSC Center, and sequence analysis at the world renowned Genome Institute are

additional assets.

Please send curriculum vitae and a letter of inquiry to the Chair of the Search Committee (email is preferred).
