The successful candidate will join our GI practice of 20 attendings and 4 nurse practitioners. The candidate will be expected to contribute to the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology's mission of delivering high quality inpatient and outpatient care, performing procedures, teaching Fellows, and engaging in scholarly activities. The candidate will join a well-established motility program with a GME approved advanced training in motility (motility fellowship already established with one fellow graduated already). Being an NIH-funded, our Motility Center is leading on different multicentre trials, and has an ongoing collaboration with bioengineering on HR-EGG.

Candidates must have an MD or equivalent and must be American Board of Pediatrics certified or eligible with a sub-specialty in Pediatric Gastroenterology.
