UIC Department of Medicine – Posted by jtran40 Chicago, Illinois, United States

Job Description

Position Summary
The Assistant Professor (RT) will participate in the Research, Educational, and Service missions of the Department of Medicine. Faculty at this rank have demonstrated evidence of original research in the form of publications in refereed journals and demonstrated excellence in teaching. This is a tenure-track appointment. The candidate must have scholarly activities in the complex molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in granulomatous inflammation in the lungs using HLA-transgenic mice and human lung samples.

Duties & Responsibilities

  • This track is for faculty with significant research commitment in addition to teaching and service. Appointment or promotion of faculty in the RT Track depends primarily on documented achievement in scholarly research activities and excellence in education. The hallmark of academic achievement for this track is the generation of new knowledge through creative and original research, and excellence in this area is usually the primary basis for promotion. The quality of publications, consistency of performance, and the extent of the candidate’s involvement in research are more important than the overall quantity of articles. For advancement in rank to Associate Professor or Professor, demonstration of and potential for attainment of substantial peer-reviewed external support is required, as appropriate to the discipline and faculty role in the department and the College of Medicine. Invited papers presented at scholarly meetings and conferences, research seminars at other institutions, and service on national scientific advisory boards are additional criteria for promotion in the RT Track. Excellence in teaching may include outstanding performance in classroom teaching, as well as successful mentoring of undergraduate, medical, graduate, and postdoctoral trainees in laboratory settings. Service to the University is a vital faculty responsibility. It is, therefore, a factor in appointment and promotion considerations, but it is insufficient for promotion in the absence of research accomplishments, recognition, and excellence in teaching. A commitment to the College’s diversity, equity, and inclusion goals is expected.
