Section Director, Neuromuscular Disorders Program at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia (Tenure or CE Track)

Location: Philadelphia, PA
Open Date: May 21, 2024
Deadline: May 21, 2026 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Department of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seek candidates for an Associate or Full Professor position in either the non-tenure clinician educator track or the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of Neuromuscular Medicine. Applicants must have an M.D or M.D./Ph.D. degree. Track will be commensurate with experience.

Teaching responsibilities may include supervision of medical students, residents, advanced practice providers, and fellows, as part of the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, and in partnership with the educational mission of the Departments of Pediatrics at CHOP and Neurology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Collaborative relationships with the adult neuromuscular program will be facilitated.

Clinical responsibilities may include outpatient and in-patient clinical services for children and adolescents with Neuromuscular Disorders. EMG and nerve conduction studies, if certified. Participation and/or leadership in clinical trials.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include organizational planning and potential leadership in clinical trials, directorship of the Muscular Dystrophy Association clinic, strategic leadership in new programs for neuromuscular disease care and research including gene therapies, and support and expand quality improvement, outcomes, translational or bench research in neuromuscular disorders. While both tenure and clinician-educator track faculty conduct methodological and collaborative research, tenure track faculty focus primarily on independent, investigator-driven research while clinician-educator track faculty focus primarily on collaboration.

The Pediatric Neuromuscular Section provides care to more than 800 children with neuromuscular disorders annually. Medical faculty are all subspeciality trained in neuromuscular disorders and we offer multidisciplinary clinics at the Philadelphia campus. In-hospital consultations for acute neuromuscular diagnoses are managed in conjunction with our neuromuscular fellows.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are EOEs. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
