Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia — Assistant or Associate Professor, Immunometabolism and Tumor Immunity

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia seek candidates for an Assistant or Associate Professor position in the tenure track. The successful applicant will have experience in the field of Immunometabolism and Tumor Immunity and will be expected to establish and maintain an independent, extramurally funded research program. Teaching and mentoring of graduate and medical students is an integral component of this position as well as sufficient postdoctoral or fellowship experience to demonstrate accomplishments, independence and outstanding promise. Responsibilities include understanding how metabolic pathway choice affects lymphocyte differentiation into specific effector subsets, and how the immune system is affected by the altered metabolic landscape of the tumor microenvironment in which the nutrient/metabolite pools and environmental conditions (such as hypoxia and acidosis) have been dramatically altered by the metabolic state of the tumor. Applicants must have an M.D./Ph.D or equivalent degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in education and research.

The position is affiliated with the Division of Transplant Immunology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), immediately adjacent to Penn.

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

The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/Women/Individuals with disabilities/Protected Veterans are encouraged to apply.
