The Department of Pathology of UHCMC/CWRU in Cleveland, Ohio, seeks an academic clinical microbiologist to serve as Assistant or Associate Director of Clinical Microbiology. The Assistant/Associate Director will share clinical oversight of a state of the art clinical microbiology lab, which is an early adopter of bacteriology total laboratory automation.

The lab is centrally located at UHCMC, which fosters daily collaborative interaction with adult and pediatric infectious disease teams. The successful candidate will be expected to engage in clinical result interpretation, provide diagnostic expertise to healthcare providers and laboratory colleagues, be actively involved in medical student, resident and fellow training, demonstrate an aptitude for constructive engagement with clinical colleagues and laboratory staff to ensure high quality clinical care, and participate in clinical or basic research programs. Opportunities for engagement in other pathology services will be available if of interest to the candidate. A variety of opportunities for scholarly research are in place as the UHCMC clinical microbiology lab has a long history of engaging in translational research projects, and the CWRU Department of Pathology is in the top 10 nationally in NIH funding. Involvement in clinical, translational, or basic research will be encouraged and supported.
