    Position description

The Division of Nephrology in the Department of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA invites applications for a tenured faculty position, to serve as Medical Director of the Kidney Transplantation Program. The candidate should be a clinically accomplished, and creative transplant nephrologist-scientist with a proven track record of academic achievement/research funding, and eligible for the full Professor level appointment. The candidate must have an M.D., D.O., or equivalent degree, be board certified in Internal Medicine and Nephrology and meet the OPTN/UNOS requirements for a medical director of a kidney transplant program. We seek a candidate with strong leadership, administrative, and clinical skills to oversee a large and growing transplant program. The starting salary will be commensurate based upon experience.

The kidney transplant program at UCLA is one of the most prominent in the US, performing over 400 transplants per year. The transplant program has over 60 dedicated personnel. The director’s clinical duties will consist of both inpatient and outpatient clinical professional leadership. Other responsibilities include leading a transplant-oriented research program, quality assurance and improvement, medical administration, professional recruitment, and participation in Transplant, Division, Department and Hospital meetings. This faculty position is expected to contribute to the research, clinical, and overall academic mission of the Department of Medicine and the Division of Nephrology. The Medical Director will also participate in the teaching of students, residents and fellows, as well as the mentoring junior faculty towards success in research and clinical activities.

We welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to the University of California commitment to diversity and excellence. We seek to recruit and retain a diverse workforce as a reflection of our commitment to serve the people of California, and to offer our students richly varied disciplines, perspectives and ways of knowing and learning.

The shared values of the DGSOM are expressed in the Cultural North Star, which was developed by members of our community and affirms our unswerving commitment to doing what’s right, making things better, and being kind. These are the standards to which we hold ourselves, and one another. Please read more about this important DGSOM program at https://medschool.ucla.edu/cultural-north-star.

All aspects of searches are confidential and all candidates are expected to review and abide by UC Regents Policy 1111 on Statement on Ethical Values and Standards of Conduct https://regents.universityofcalifornia.edu/governance/policies/1111.html.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, bullying and other demeaning behavior, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists’ current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks.
