Position Description:

The Department of Pathology at The University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine is seeking basic scientist and physician scientist candidates for a tenure-track faculty position associated with an endowed chair appointment. Candidates must have a doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent) and a record of ongoing cancer research with robust extramural funding. Candidates should also have excellent communication skills. Successful candidates will be expected to run a strong research program in some aspect of cancer biology, in addition to participating in clinical service and education (as appropriate). For appropriately board certified M.D. or Ph.D. candidates, any area of clinical expertise in Pathology will be considered.

There is broad flexibility in the specific focus of cancer research, and there are natural departmental and institutional synergies in both hematopoietic and solid tumors. In addition to appointment as an endowed chair, lucrative startup packages are available that may include resources for programmatic development beyond the candidate’s own laboratory. The selected applicant will receive a primary appointment in the Department of Pathology, with opportunities for secondary appointments in other departments and programs. The University of Iowa is home to the NCI designated Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center which fosters a collaborative and supportive environment for basic and clinical scientists.

Iowa City is part of a cosmopolitan area with a population of almost 100,000.

The area also boasts a multitude of local, state and national recreation areas, with many hiking and biking trails as well as water related activities. Location is approximately 4-5 hours by car from Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Omaha and Kansas City and within 20 minutes of the Eastern Iowa airport.
