Location: Philadelphia, PA
Open Date: Oct 17, 2023
Deadline: Oct 17, 2025 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

The Colton Center for Autoimmunity at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Assistant Professor positions in the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of creative and exciting fundamental and/or translational research in the broad area of autoimmunity. The objective is to enhance our understanding of the underlying causes of autoimmune disorders and to catalyze progress in the way we diagnose, predict, and treat these diseases. We welcome candidates from all areas of immunology employing a spectrum of methodologies, spanning from computational biology to basic experimental immunology. Applicants must have an M.D. or Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree. Rank will be commensurate with experience.

The Colton Center for Autoimmunity operates under the umbrella of the Institute for Immunology and Immune Health (I3H) at the University of Pennsylvania. The faculty members within I3H have diverse backgrounds and expertise spanning various fields such as autoimmunity and tolerance, cancer immunology, host-pathogen interactions, mucosal immunology, immunometabolism, neuroimmunology, and systems immunology. Our dynamic research environment is designed to encourage vibrant interaction and collaboration, facilitating the exchange of ideas, expertise, and innovative approaches. The Colton Center for Autoimmunity and I3H maintains robust connections with multiple departments across the University of Pennsylvania, including but not limited to the Department of Medicine, the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, the Department of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics, the Department of Microbiology, and the Department of Genetics.

Clinical duties, if applicable, will be under the assignment of the academic department where the faculty appointment will be held and will be consistent with the clinical expertise of the candidate and needs of the department.

Teaching responsibilities may include opportunities to teach and mentor exceptional graduate and medical students, and to be an active member of several graduate groups across campus.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include establishing and overseeing a productive and vibrant research lab, publishing high impact papers in top tier journals, successfully obtaining external funding support to sustain the lab and achieving national/ international recognition as a leader in the field.

Applicants must have postdoctoral research experience that shows outstanding promise. The position includes a competitive salary, high-quality laboratory space and start-up funding. It is expected that the candidate chosen will establish an independent, extramurally funded research program and participate in teaching students in the School of Medicine.

The faculty appointment will be in a department in the School of Medicine that is consistent with the scientific expertise of the successful candidate. Depending on the applicant's credentials, academic appointments are available in the Department of Medicine, the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, the Department of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics, the Department of Microbiology or the Department of Genetics.

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.

Submit applications by December 1st, 2023 to be considered for this position. Applications received after this date might be considered for other additional positions at the Colton Center for Autoimmunity.
