Director of Clinical Chemistry Faculty Position – Yale Department of Laboratory Medicine
July 25, 2018
The Department of Laboratory Medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine seeks a physician with expertise in Clinical Chemistry for a full-time ladder faculty position in the Department as a Director of the Yale New Haven Hospital Clinical Chemistry Laboratory. The successful candidate would be expected to spend the majority of their time in clinical endeavors; educational and scholarly responsibilities are also an important part of the position. There are multiple opportunities for those with clinical and scholarly interests in all of the subdisciplines of Chemistry; a focus on informatics (computational healthcare), laboratory stewardship, leading edge “omics” test development and precision medicine, or system-based laboratory collaborations, are of special interest. Candidates should be MDs or MD/PhDs who are Board certified/eligible in Clinical Pathology; formal subspecialty training in an appropriate laboratory medicine subdiscipline is especially welcome but is not required. Rank is dependent on the successful candidate’s qualifications. There are many opportunities for independent research as well as collaborative translational and clinical investigation.
Yale School of Medicine, the sixth-oldest medical school in the United States, is one of the world’s leading centers for biomedical research, advanced clinical care and medical education. It ranks sixth among medical schools receiving funds from the NIH. Yale New Haven Hospital is a 1,519-bed tertiary referral center, which includes the 200-bed Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, the 76-bed Yale New Haven Psychiatric Hospital and the 128-bed Smilow Cancer Hospital. It is the flagship member of the Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS), which includes Bridgeport, Greenwich, Lawrence + Memorial and Westerly Hospitals, the Northeast Medical Group, and other entities. The Department of Laboratory Medicine at Yale has a long and proud tradition of providing leading edge clinical care, outstanding biomedical research, and comprehensive education. Its roots can be traced back to the work of John Peters, who, as head of the Metabolic Division of the Department of Medicine in the 1920's and 30's, established methodologies for the rigorous examination of the chemical composition of blood and urine that brought quantitative discipline to the study of human metabolism.
The Department supports residency (CP-only and AP/CP) and fellowship programs, the latter including Transfusion Medicine, Hematopathology, Clinical Chemistry, Medical Microbiology, Clinical Informatics and Molecular Genetic Pathology. The Clinical Chemistry Fellowship program is also accredited by COMACC for PhD trainees.
