The Division of Pediatric Pulmonology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the North Carolina Children's Hospital is seeking an individual to join a busy and productive academic practice. This is a full-time clinician-educator, fixed-term faculty position, with focus on outpatient outreach clinics but also to include some coverage of bronchoscopy and inpatient/consultation services. Position will dedicate approximately 50% time to clinician-educator roles based at East Carolina University (Greenville, NC) while remaining 50% of time will be dedicated to activities at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Rank will be determined at a level commensurate with the applicant's experience and accomplishments. The UNC Division of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine offers an exceptionally collaborative environment for the care of children with the full spectrum of pulmonary diseases including cystic fibrosis, asthma, primary ciliary dyskinesia, complex airway disease, bronchopulmonary dysplasia and other types of chronic lung disease. The program has outstanding expertise in flexible bronchoscopy, facilities for infant/preschool and standard lung function testing, and a lung transplant program. The clinical programs provide a multidisciplinary care approach and stress continuity of care through partnership with primary care providers. Clinical care is provided at the NC Children's Hospital and at the NC Children's Specialty Clinic in Raleigh; and at outreach or collaborating sites including clinics in Greensboro, Greenville, Sanford, and Wilmington. In addition, strong basic and translational research programs provide opportunities to participate in clinical trials for innovative therapies through collaborative work within the institution and as part of national research networks. This position is posted in collaboration with East Carolina University's Pediatric Pulmonology program, which serves patients at the Maynard Children’s Hospital, a 197-bed hospital with about 7,000 pediatric admissions a year; and the ECU Pediatric Specialty Clinics in Greenville. The ECU program cares for cystic fibrosis, asthma, sleep disorders and other respiratory conditions; and offers bronchoscopy services, polysomnography and pulmonary function testing.
