The Division of Geriatrics, Gerontology, and Palliative Care at the University of California, San Diego, Department of Medicine ( ) is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body is actively recruiting academic faculty positions in Geriatrics and Palliative Care is seeking candidates for a tenured faculty position, at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.

The focus of this search is Geroscience, a field that seeks to understand biological mechanisms of aging to develop strategies that can delay the onset of multiple, rather than individual, age-related chronic diseases and conditions. New insights into the biological underpinnings of aging have tremendous potential to impact the development of promising prognostic tools and treatments for age-related conditions. These opportunities require interdisciplinary teams with complementary expertise in translational research, clinical trials, and human cohort studies. Successful candidates will be expected to establish a vigorous program of high-quality externally funded research. Specific focus areas include, but are not limited to: multi-omics, bioinformatics, epigenetics, and biodemography.

The Department of Medicine is a leading center for clinical care, research, and teaching. We are dedicated to translating laboratory discoveries into better methods to detect, prevent, and treat disease. As part of a research-intensive academic medical center, we offer training programs in both general internal medicine and subspecialties in an inclusive, rich educational environment. With nearly 500 full-time faculty members and over 100 academic researchers, the Department of Medicine is the largest of the distinguished departments in the UC San Diego School of Medicine. Our Geriatrics program was ranked 13th out of more than 1,500 national programs in the 2020-2021 U.S. News & World Report. Partnerships with research groups across the UCSD campus and with local research Institutes further strengthen the Division's research program.

The successful candidate will be expected to build and maintain a high-quality, extramurally funded research program, provide service to the University and broader academic community at a level commensurate with their career stage, and contribute to a collegial and collaborative academic environment with a focus on the promotion of justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion. The successful candidate will contribute to the division journal club and in the division Grand Rounds, teaching other seminar series, and will also mentor trainees/postdocs, helping to shape and expand the University's commitment to diversity initiatives.

Candidates must have a PhD or MD/PhD with an emphasis relevant to Gerontology and/or Geroscience. Candidates must have at least two years of postdoctoral experience in Geroscience and have a track record of research excellence.

Candidates with experience in collaborative geroscience research focused on older adults are preferred. Candidates with experience creating, participating in, and/or contributing to equity and inclusion programs that increase access and success of underrepresented students and faculty in the sciences are preferred. Candidates with expertise in establishing clinical studies and utilizing biorepositories and clinical data to understand the genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms that underlie common chronic conditions and diseases affecting older adults are preferred
