Chief of Pediatric Nephrology

The Department of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine is currently seeking qualified individuals to assume the role of Chief of the Division of Pediatric Nephrology with an appointment at the Associate Professor or Professor rank. We are looking for a board-certified nephrologist to lead the Division and develop the program’s mission in the areas of clinical care, research and education who will address the challenges and opportunities in the field of pediatric nephrology.

Affiliated with the prestigious NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital at Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan, New York City, the Division of Pediatric Nephrology has an active inpatient and outpatient presence with a busy end stage renal disease program including dialysis and transplantation as well as procedures including acute dialysis (PD, HD and CRRT) and renal biopsies. It is also expected that the Chief will foster the development of collaborations within the Department and Medical College as well as with the Division of Pediatric Nephrology at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. Our affiliate, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, is New York’s No. 1 children’s hospital and among the best in the nation for children’s care (U.S. News & World Report’s 2022-23 “Best Children’s Hospitals” rankings).

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital hosts a comprehensive network of regional hospitals located in Lower Manhattan and the outer boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens. These three regional hospitals deliver a variety of pediatric services and are closely allied with the NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital. It is expected the Division Chief will oversee development and integration of the pediatric nephrology services at these locations.

The Division/Department especially welcomes applicants with interest and/or experience in research (basic, translational, or clinical), as well as dialysis and kidney transplant. This position requires a passion for teaching and education of medical students and pediatric residents as well as other members of the multidisciplinary team. The Division Chief is encouraged to consider developing a plan for creation of a pediatric nephrology fellowship in collaboration with the existing fellowship program at the NYP Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital.

The position offers a competitive salary and benefits package and academic rank commensurate with experience and academic achievement.

Please direct any inquiries to Dr. Gerald Loughlin, the search committee chair.
