Job Description

The Department of Pathology at Duke University Medical Center is recruiting a full-time faculty member to serve as the Assistant Director of Clinical Chemistry for Duke University Health System Clinical Laboratories and as an Assistant or Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology.

- Duke Health has more than 290 locations providing quality health services across the entire continuum of care for our community. Duke also serves as a large tertiary care center with world-renowned expertise in transplant, oncology and cardiac care. Each year, our providers touch the lives of over 400,000 patients in our hospitals and hospital-based clinics and over twice as many in our primary care and outpatient diagnostic clinics. For these patients, our laboratories perform over 10 million tests/year across all laboratory disciplines in 42 different work centers located throughout the health system.

The Department is seeking an outstanding clinical chemist who possesses training across all areas of clinical chemistry including automated clinical chemistry, immunoassay based testing, and laboratory developed mass spectrometry based testing.

- The Assistant Director will provide technical expertise to our clinical chemistry laboratories across the health system to ensure the highest levels of patient care and to support our academic research and teaching missions.

- Serve as an active faculty member in our Department of Pathology at Duke University.
