Our department provides testing in all major disciplines including microbiology, chemistry, hematology, transfusion medicine, tissue typing/transplant, cytogenetics and molecular pathology including next generation sequencing along with an active surgical pathology service. The department’s expertise is shared not only with the UI Health Hospital and Clinics but with physicians and other medical facilities through the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System Reference Laboratory System. The Division of Pathology Informatics guides the maintenance, evaluation, and enhancement of the laboratory information and ancillary systems used throughout the department and hospital.

In addition, the incumbent will help lead the active learning curriculum for residents, graduate students, and clinical informatics fellows within our ACGME accredited programs.

Duties:  The position requires close interaction with the University and Hospital Information Services teams, Clinical Informatics team members, and AP/CP faculty and staff.

The position will have protected time to develop an investigational focus, with a goal of developing collaborative or independent research, especially in the areas of machine learning and digital imaging.

Qualifications:  The incumbent will be expected to maintain an active clinical practice and credentialing in an area of anatomic and/or clinical pathology service. Current medical license, board certification in AP/CP or AP is required.

Successful completion of a fellowship or equivalent training and/or experience in clinical or pathology informatics is strongly preferred. Special consideration will be given to those with demonstrated experience in teaching, development of an informatics curriculum, and machine learning expertise/interest.
