The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for a full-time academic appointment at the Assistant, Associate, or full Professor level to serve as an Associate Director of Transfusion Medicine. The academic appointment may be in the Health Sciences (HS) Clinical or Clinical X series, depending on experience and extent of research effort.

Clinical X appointments confer membership in the UCI Academic Senate.

The successful applicant will have a track record of working cooperatively and collegially within an academic and clinical environment and will contribute to the teaching, clinical service, and research missions of the department.
