Position Details


Position Description

The Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Hospital is seeking a full-time neonatologist to join our faculty as a full-time Assistant Professor (without tenure) or a full-time Associate Professor (without tenure) on the Clinician-Educator track. This is a 12-month service period position with an anticipated start date of July 2020. This is an exceptional opportunity for a neonatologist who also wishes to spend time in education, scholarship and to participate in research at an outstanding academic center, as all University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service. Our Division has three primary areas of research focus: translational and clinical neonatal neuroprotection/neuroscience, simulation as an educational and clinical competency tool, and global neonatal-perinatal health.

The 36-faculty member Division of Neonatology has an outstanding fellowship training program, robust clinical/translational and basic research, and provides clinical care at two academic NICUs and several regional NICUs. The division’s highly valued clinical faculty are fully integrated into the division’s educational and scholarly activities and each spends several weeks per year attending at one of the two academic NICUs.

The Seattle-Tacoma/South Puget Sound region is widely recognized as one of the most desirable locations in the US to live and work, with a wide spectrum of cultural, educational and sporting events, and with year-round recreational opportunities for boaters, hikers, bikers and skiers—to name but a few!

Qualifications

This position requires an MD or DO (or foreign equivalent), board certification, or board eligibility in Neonatology.

In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-U.S.) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
