University of Nebraska Medical Center
Applications are invited from high energy, results-oriented individuals to fill the position of Chair, Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology (CIP) for the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine. The incoming Chair will also be the Director of the newly formed Cardiovascular Research Center.
This is a prime opportunity for a cardiovascular scientist to build a new program in conjunction with a new Chief of the Division of Cardiology. Cardiovascular and renal physiology research has always been a strength of the department of CIP. The new leader will work with existing members of CIP and Cardiology to help build a program in cardiovascular science, with the goal of eventually incorporating elements from all colleges at UNMC.
The Department currently consists of 14.5 full-time faculty with annual research income of approximately $4.5 M. The department is housed in modern research space in the Durham Research Center and administers a graduate program in Integrative Physiology and Molecular Medicine. Faculty members also participate in teaching at several levels including medical, allied health and graduate.
The successful Chair candidate will be an MD, MD/PhD or PhD. S/he will have a vibrant, well-funded cardiovascular research program and prior administrative experience. S/he will have a history of extramural research, ideally including training grant funding. As Director of Cardiovascular Research in UNMC/Nebraska Medicine, s/he will have a vision for building an interactive basic/translational program bridging multiple departments and groups. In addition, he/she will guide the department’s teaching programs and provide strong research mentorship to both basic science and clinical faculty and fellows.
UNMC is a premier academic medical center located in Omaha, NE with newly built research and clinical space. Total campus research space is approximately 1 million square feet. Active training programs exist in basic and clinical sciences. In addition, a large cardiology and cardiovascular surgery program exists at UNMC, providing outstanding resources for clinical and translational research.
The review of applications will begin immediately.
