Job Type: Faculty
Job Title: Assistant Professor Term
Date Available: Immediate
Institution: University of Louisville
Location: Louisville, KY
Description: The Division of Plastic Surgery at the University of Louisville is recruiting a new faculty member. The position would be tenure or clinical track at the Assistant or Associate Professor level depending on qualifications. University of Louisville has recently acquired the Jewish Hospital network and this is a tremendous opportunity to join an expanding and vibrant program.

Candidates are required to have experience in all aspects of plastic surgery including a commitment to academic and clinical excellence. We have some flexibility in qualifications and candidates would be able to develop a diverse clinical practice with emphasis in their desired area, including cancer reconstruction, trauma reconstruction, microsurgery, lymphatic reconstruction, peripheral nerve, bariatric plastic surgery and extremity. Fellowship training is favorable but not mandatory.

We currently have several full-time faculty members, but we are in need of expansion to cover the vast amount of plastic surgery referrals for routine and complex cases. We have an excellent independent Plastic Surgery Residency, with two residents per year, which is accredited. We are starting an integrated program next year. We also have a state of the art Microsurgery lab and Acland Fresh Tissue Anatomy Lab. The UofL is a research institution with opportunities to collaborate in basic science areas of cancer, fat transfer, wound healing, and transplant. We, therefore, have much potential for development of an academic career.

Our University hospital rests on a campus with two private hospitals, Jewish Hospital (now owned by ULH but separate standing), Norton Hospital, and a separate standing children's hospital, Norton Children's Hospital. We already have a staff Plastic Surgeon at our nearby Veterans Hospital but there is opportunity to join that staff as well. Our salary for the incoming faculty is competitive and includes a generous base plus private practice like clinical incentive. We have several outpatient clinic offices at the University of Louisville ACB, University of Louisville (Faculty Office Building with a separate Plastic Surgery wing) and Outpatient Surgery Center and East and South end opportunities.
