We are seeking a passionate, mid- or senior career Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician or translational physician-scientist to coordinate and direct research activities within the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine as Director of Maternal-Fetal Medicine Research.

The individual holding this position will direct research activities in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine and is expected to be a key senior mentor to junior faculty on the physician-scientist track and scientist track.

UWMC is a comprehensive healthcare facility dedicated to providing specialized care for a broad spectrum of patients from throughout a five-state region comprised of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI), and includes the region’s premier neonatal intensive care unit.
