The University of Florida Department of Medicine is seeking applications for a full-time clinical or research track position in non-malignant hematology. The appointment will be at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor level commensurate with experience. Tenure accruing and non-tenure accruing tracks are available.

This position will require direct patient care, teaching, as well as clinical research. Interest in hemostasis/thrombosis, cancer-related thrombosis, anticoagulation, anemia management, and sickle cell disease with development of clinical/translational research in these areas is desirable.

We enjoy a collaborative relationship with UF Health Shands Hospital and pride ourselves in professional and cooperative interdisciplinary care. The UF Department of Medicine is a national leader in cancer, cardiology, gastroenterology, kidney disorders, and pulmonology. In addition, UF Health Shands Hospital is ranked among the top-50 in seven specialties in the 2015-16 edition of America’s Best Hospitals, published by U.S. News & World Report. UF Health Shands Hospital is poised for continued growth with the rise of a new UF Health Shands Specialty Hospital Tower, slated for completion in 2017. Resources available for professional development at the University of Florida Health Sciences Center include leadership, education, and research tracks within a Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI), formal mentorship programs, and supported opportunities for teaching and research. These faculty positions may be based at our University teaching hospital or at our immediately adjacent VA Hospital, both of which serve a designated shortage area and/or a medically underserved area/population. Requisite attributes include a commitment to service, a strong sense of teamwork, and a desire to train tomorrow’s doctors.

Applicants must have an MD degree and be board-certified or board eligible in Hematology, and be eligible for a Florida Medical License. The annual salary is negotiable and commensurate with experience and education. Substantial start-up packages are available for appropriate research applicants.
