Our Division of Allergy-Immunology-Rheumatology and Rady Children's Specialists of San Diego (a Medical Foundation) is seeking applicants for Academic Clinicians in Pediatric Allergy/Immunology.
The Allergy/Immunology section is made up of a multidisciplinary team including 6 core and 3 affiliate physicians, 2 nurse practitioners, a clinical research coordinator, and several dedicated nurses and respiratory therapists. The team cares for a wide variety of patients from a large catchment area from Southern California, Western Arizona, and Northern Mexico and participates actively in national multicenter clinical trials.

This position is a unique opportunity to continue the tradition of strong clinical care and further develop clinical and translational research at Rady Children's Hospital.

Rady Children's Hospital has more than 200 medical and surgical specialists who are University physicians and have strong relationships with community pediatricians. Resources in the Department of Pediatrics' 21 divisions include a Division of Host-Microbe Systems and Therapeutics Discovery, a Division of Genome Information Sciences, along with the California Teratogen Information Service and Clinical Research Program, a National Children's Study Base Location, and strong basic, clinical, translational and community-based research programs.

In addition, there is a thriving biotechnology and pharmaceutical environment in San Diego. Furthermore, San Diego offers the opportunity to work with diverse populations including a border community and 18 Indian tribes/bands.
