Position description

The University of California Irvine (UCI) School of Medicine, Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine invites applications from MD, MD-PhD, or equivalent board-certified neuropathologists to contribute to an active Alzheimer Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) research and clinical community. The full-time academic appointment may be at any professorial rank (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor) in the Line series (tenure track/tenured, state funded), which confers membership in the UCI Academic Senate.

The successful recruit will have the skills to carry out neuropathology and related research as a thought leader and collaborative team member. Opportunities to serve immediately or in the future in leadership roles will be concordant with rank and experience. Extramural research funding is an asset. Campus resources in neuroscience research include the UCI Alzheimer Disease Research Center (ADRC), Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND), Center for Autism Research and Translation (CART), Reeve-Irvine Spinal Cord Injury Center, Epilepsy Center (EpiCenter), Center for Complex Biological Systems (CCBS), Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center (SCRC), Center for Aging Research – Down syndrome (CFAR-DS), and graduate training programs in the neurosciences, biomedical sciences, experimental pathology, and systems biology.

The successful recruit will also have the administrative and interpersonal skills to effectively lead and coordinate clinical, teaching, and research activities within and beyond the Neuropathology division. As a member of the Neuropathology division and ADRC, candidates should have extensive and current autopsy neuropathology experience as well as expertise in the diagnosis and understanding of human neurodegenerations and dementia. Clinical licensure and board certification in neuropathology is not required at the time of application but will be necessary for the successful applicant, as is dedication to teaching and mentoring, which will involve medical students, graduate students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty. Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience. To apply for this position, candidates should upload their curriculum vitae, statements (research, teaching, and diversity), reference information, and additional items to UCI Recruit:

Founded in 1965, UCI is a top hospital and top-10 public university in U.S. News & World Report and home to several NIH-funded centers, including the ADRC, Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC), and Institute for Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS). With philanthropic support, the UCI School of Medicine is now joined by the Samueli Institute for Integrative Health and new Schools of Nursing, Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Population & Public Health in the UCI College of Health Sciences. As the centerpiece for UCI’s Brilliant Future campaign, a new hospital complex on the Irvine-Newport Beach campus is under construction and scheduled to begin operations in 2023. UCI Health is the only academic medical center in Orange County, the nation’s 6th largest county and one of the most desirable locations to live in the US. In support of its diverse citizenry, UCI is Orange County’s largest employer, contributing $7 billion annually to the local economy and $8 billion statewide.
