Position description

The University of California in San Diego (UCSD) is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. The Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition in the Department of Pediatrics is currently in an exciting period of growth and expansion. As part of our ongoing pursuit of clinical innovation, we are seeking a Pediatric Gastroenterologist with expertise in motility and functional gastrointestinal disorders.

As a known major academic institute in southern California, UCSD offers a comprehensive benefit package and is affiliated with Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego; the tertiary care free-standing Children's Hospital that serves all San Diego counties and southern California. The Department of Pediatrics is deeply committed to promoting children's health in the community and across the state, while supporting innovative clinical programs and expanding research initiatives.

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.

Appointment will be at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. Series will be determined by the successful candidate's skills, qualifications and funding.
