The Division of Geriatrics in the Department of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Associate Professor or Full Professor positions in the non-tenure clinician educator track. Applicants must have an M.D or M.D./Ph.D. degree. Candidates should be board certified in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine and board certified/eligible in Geriatric Medicine.

Teaching responsibilities may include teaching residents, fellows, and medical students. Candidates will have opportunities to participate in the Perelman School of Medicine's outstanding educational programs at the UME, GME, or post-graduate level.

Clinical responsibilities may include outpatient care in the ambulatory practice and/or inpatient care at Penn Presbyterian Acute Care for Elderly (ACE) Unit.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include submission of grants and writing research papers in the area of geriatrics. The successful candidate will be responsible for building a collaborative research program in areas of high relevance for geriatric medicine, including but not limited to geriatric syndromes (e.g., depression, delirium, dementia, falls, gait disorders, incontinence, osteoporosis, frailty, sensory loss, sleep disorders) or a focus on the pathology/pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment or care (at the individual, system or societal levels) of a medical or surgical disease in older adults. The division has a particular interest in research and educational activities that address neurodegenerative diseases, sleep, population health, surgical care, and oncology. A depth and breadth of scientific and educational approaches are welcomed. The candidate should have the potential to obtain NIH, NSF and not-for-profit funding as well as support from industry and philanthropy that is scientifically, educationally and mission appropriate.

Clinical and educational activities will be synergistic with divisional needs and the faculty member's scholarship and its translation into practice and policy. There will be an expectation of the ability of the candidate to provide management and/or leadership. Rank will be commensurate with experience.

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.
