Position description

The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine, invites applications for a full-time faculty position to serve as a Clinical Pathologist/Medical Director. The academic appointment may be at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level, in the Health Sciences (HS) Clinical or Clinical X series, depending on experience and extent of research and teaching effort. Both HS and Clinical X faculty provide patient care; teach fellows, residents, and medical students; perform public and University service; and contribute to scholarly activities. Clinical X faculty are expected to conduct more substantial research and have demonstrated excellence in teaching. An academic appointment in the Clinical X series confers membership in the UCI Academic Senate.

Candidates should have an MD or DO degree, be eligible for a California medical license, and have board certification/eligibility in Clinical Pathology. Individuals with expertise in clinical chemistry, clinical/molecular microbiology, and transfusion medicine are encouraged to apply.

The successful applicant will have a track record of working cooperatively and collegially within an academic and clinical environment and will contribute to the teaching, clinical service, and research missions of the department. Responsibilities of the Medical Director on-site include effective management of administrative functions of a full-service clinical laboratory as well as their clinical specialty area(s). This position will primarily serve the laboratory needs of a new hospital complex on the Irvine-Newport Beach campus that is under construction and scheduled to begin operations in late 2023. In addition, the chosen applicant will share laboratory service needs of the 400+-bed state-of-the-art tertiary/quaternary care Douglas hospital located in the city of Orange and several outpatient clinics throughout Orange County.
