The Department of Internal Medicine at the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine, is recruiting a faculty member in the Regular (Tenure-Track)/In-Residence or Clinical X series at the Associate/Full Professor rank in the field of Pulmonary and Critical care.

The successful candidate will be a physician-leader who will serve as Chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine.

The Chief of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine reports to the Chair of the Department of Medicine, Dr. Timothy E. Albertson.
