Tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Division of Hematology

The Division of Hematology at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for a physician-scientist at the level of Assistant Professor on the tenure track. The successful applicant will establish an independent, laboratory-based basic research program. The appointee will complement, expand, and strengthen the current research program in the Division of Hematology and Washington University academic community. Current Hematology Division faculty members are actively engaged in diverse research areas, including hematopoiesis, thrombosis, inflammation, stem cell biology, myeloproliferative neoplasms, and lysosomal storage diseases (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 state-of-the-art clinical and basic science core facilities, including the Genome Engineering & Stem Cell Center, Washington University Center for Cellular Imaging, Genome Technology Access Center, Immunomonitoring Laboratory, Mass Spectrometry Technology Access Center, and Tissue Procurement Core. Numerous opportunities are available to engage with trainees through the Division of Biological & Biomedical Sciences, Medical Scientist Training Program, as well as a longstanding NHLBI-supported Molecular Hematology T32 training program.

Washington University’s outstanding training atmosphere and leading-edge research are testimony to the benefits of recruiting a diverse, dynamic, and enriching talent. St. Louis and surrounding areas offer a wide range of networking, mentoring, and development opportunities.

Candidates should have an M.D. or combined M.D./Ph.D. degree. The successful applicant will establish an independent, laboratory-based basic research program and will participate in the inpatient 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. 

Enthusiastic physicians with the skills and interest to pursue an academic career that advances healthcare, medicine, and institutional service are encouraged to apply.
