Assistant or Associate Professor, Pediatric Infectious Diseases (Immunocompromised)

The Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases of Weill Cornell Medicine is seeking to recruit a full-time physician at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to join our full-time faculty. Qualified candidates must be Board Certified/Board Eligible in Pediatric Infectious Disease, have a strong interest in the immunocompromised host population and general pediatric infectious diseases clinical care.

Our Division is composed of 4 full time clinical faculty members who are closely involved in the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and the Infection Control/Epidemiology Program at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, and have a close relationship with the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory. 

Interested candidates (MD or MD/PhD), who will provide additional support to our faculty for inpatient and outpatient coverage, will mainly be responsible in building an Immunocompromised Program and initiate collaboration with other nearby institutions. There will be the opportunity to provide care for all immunocompromised patients, which include patients on chemotherapy for hemato-oncology diseases, patients status pre- and post-solid organ transplant (i.e., kidney, liver), and patients on immunomodulators as in patients with gastrointestinal and/or rheumatological processes. Establishing collaborations with nearby institutions could further broaden the spectrum of clinical care.

Clinical and/or translational research is also encouraged in an area of interest of the candidate and should be closely connected with the immunocompromised host population.

Candidates will be eligible for a faculty appointment with Weill Cornell Medicine commensurate with their academic rank, experience and accomplishments and education.
