Endowed Chair in Immunology Research
Department of Pathology
University of Iowa Health Care
IOWA CITY, IOWA (USA). 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 have a record of ongoing immunology research with robust
extramural funding. Candidates should also have excellent communication skills. Successful
candidates will be expected to run a strong research program in immunology, 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 terms of the specific focus of immunology research, although there
are natural departmental and institutional synergies in the areas of autoimmunity, basic T- and B-
cell biology, neuroinflammation and infectious disease immunology. In addition to appointment
on 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 a range of
outstanding research groups and centers that foster a collaborative and supportive environment
for basic and clinical scientists.
Letters of application should include a CV, statement of career goals, research plans, and the
names and addresses of three individuals who can provide letters of reference.
The University of Iowa is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer. All qualified
applicants are encouraged to apply and will receive consideration for employment free from
