Candidates with a track record in the development and application of molecular, cytogenetic, genomic, and epigenomic diagnostic approaches to benign and malignant hematologic disorders, with evidence of scholarly contributions in clinical, translational and/or basic research, are encouraged to apply. Those eligible for appointment in the Ladder Rank (tenure-track) series will also be expected to develop and sustain an independent research program and compete for extramural grant support.
