UCI Health - Endowed Chair

CA, Orange

Irvine, CA – UCI Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute and the UCI School of Medicine are pleased to announce the search for a Susan and Henry Samueli Endowed Chair. This is a tremendous opportunity for one or more physician-scientists who have interests in integrative medicine and an appreciation for taking a balanced approach to wellness and prevention.

The Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute in the Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences at UCI offers integrative healthcare that incorporates research, teaching, and education into patient care, in the classroom and local community. The UCI School of Medicine’s mission is to promote biomedical sciences and medicine in Orange County, California, and beyond, through excellence in patient care, research, education and community service. To support these efforts, the Samueli Institute and UCI School of Medicine are recruiting for two endowed chair positions at the rank of associate or full professor, in the Ladder Rank Professor, Professor-in-Residence, or Professor of Clinical X series. The Endowed Chair will lead and/or conduct meaningful integrative health research and will support the mission of healthcare education by engaging faculty in the area of integrative medicine in medical school education and residency programs.

Confidential interest, nominations or referrals can be sent to Deborah (Dee) Wing, MD, MBA, or Tricia Porter via email at: tporter@wittkieffer.com or 508-369-0231 or you can apply on line at https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/apply/JPF06767.

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, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate 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 Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) positions will be subject to institutional reference checks.
