Rheumatology Assistant Professor

The Division of Rheumatic and Autoimmune Diseases in the Department of Medicine at the University of Minnesota is recruiting a full-time Assistant Professor position on the Clinical Scholar track. This faculty position will be 80% clinical and 20% academic.

Essential requirements include an M.D. or international equivalent and board certification (or eligibility based on successful completion of Rheumatology fellowship program) in Rheumatology.

Clinical practice will include outpatient clinics in the brand new, state of the art M Health Clinics and Surgery Center and at the Fairview Maple Grove Specialty Center, and inpatient consult service at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview. Inpatient call will be shared with other members of the Division. The Division currently has nine full-time, many who are world-renown clinicians and researchers.

The University of Minnesota Medical School has a strong history of training and graduating top-quality medical students, residents, and fellows, and this faculty position will be expected to contribute to the academic mission of the Department of Medicine and the Division of Renal Diseases and Hypertension.

The Department of Medicine is one of the top research departments in the United States, and our Division faculty researchers work actively to seek a cure for a diverse group of systemic diseases, including Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Polymyositis/Dermatomyositis.

The University of Minnesota is located in Minneapolis with the historic Mississippi River winding through the heart of campus, and boasts a culturally diverse group of faculty and students who are always excited to display their Golden Gopher pride. The U of M is surrounded by a community rich in cultural and sporting events, with top-notch museums like the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Institute of Art found alongside the beautiful, open-air baseball park Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, and the brand new US Bank Stadium, the future game day site of the Minnesota Vikings. Minneapolis has recently grown in recognition as a performance arts mecca, with USA Today naming us “the sleeping giant of the regional theater scene” and Time Magazine selecting our Children’s Theatre Company as the best in the country, and our live music scene boasts historic venues like First Avenue, which has nurtured the careers of industry greats like Prince and Bob Dylan. Though our campus is nestled in the heart of a bustling metropolis, cultivated outdoor spaces like the Chain of Lakes parks, Minnehaha Falls hiking trails, and the extensive chain of bike paths are reasons why Forbes Magazine ranked Minneapolis #1 on their 2016 list of America’s healthiest cities.
