The Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care in the Department of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Assistant, Associate, and/or Full Professor position in the tenure track. Applicants must have an MD or MD/PhD degree. Board Certification is required.

The Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Division of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania has a newly established position for a Director of the COPD Program. The Director will have the opportunity of leveraging the existing strengths of an already prominent program in COPD based at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center while aiming to expand the research, clinical, and educational missions of this program.

The new Director will be a skilled physician-scientist nationally recognized for excellence in his/her area of focus with a strong track record of funded, impactful investigation in bench, translational, or clinical research in COPD. The Director should have an exceptional record of scientific accomplishments, including publications in top journals and success in extramural grants. Candidates for this position should possess both leadership and teaching experience. The candidate would be expected to integrate their own interests in the larger Penn Pulmonary research community as they grow a multidisciplinary research program which integrates with the comprehensive clinical program, led by the Medical Director. The applicant will be expected to mentor trainees at all levels, particularly pulmonary fellows interested in careers as physician scientists in obstructive lung disease. The role will involve leadership to position the COPD Program with other successful academic-clinical programs in the Division, the Department of Medicine, and Medical Center.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
