The Department of Allergy & Clinical Immunology at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center is
recruiting for an academic clinical allergy & immunology faculty member. The candidate will be expected to participate in clinical care and clinical teaching activities in the department, including the teaching of residents, and fellows within our Kaiser Los Angeles Allergy fellowship training program. Additional involvement in clinical research is encouraged. Clinical care will involve care of a breakdown of approximately 70% adult patients and 30% pediatric patients, involving primarily allergic/ hypersensitivity diseases, but also primary immunodeficiency. It is a unique opportunity to be a clinical faculty member in a department that truly combines an academic mission with clinical care within a large private multi-specialty medical group.
The position is officially a 4-day a week position (0.8 FTE) with 3.5 days spent in clinical activities and 0.5 days of protected academic time. This is a unique opportunity to have a clinically-oriented academic position in a thriving large multi-specialty integrated group practice. Salary scales are based on non-academic multi-specialty group practices, and are commensurate with experience. The Department of Allergy & Clinical Immunology is an independent department within the medical center, administratively independent from the departments of Pediatrics and Medicine. Opportunities for clinical research, either in conjunction with our fellows or independently, are excellent. In particular, population-level research is a strength of the Kaiser Permanente research program.
Teaching of medical students, and obtaining a faculty position with the new Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson Medical School is an option, depending on candidate interest, with faculty rank commensurate with credentials.
