The Arthritis and Clinical Immunology Research Program at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation(OMRF) seeks to understand roles of the immune system in health and disease. With a new expansion underway, we invite qualified candidates to apply for a clinical trialist faculty position to spearhead efforts directed towards investigator-initiated, sponsor-led and/or NIH clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Sjogren's syndrome and related disorders, as well as, associated comprehensive, optimal patient health care. We are currently recruiting at Assistant, Associate or Full Member levels (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor equivalents).
Successful candidates must be licensed physicians in good standing to practice in the United States. Applicants with an MD or MD/PhD who are Board-certified or Board-eligible in Internal Medicine/Rheumatology are preferred.

Successful candidates will be expected to collaborate with basic scientists who are interested in asking patient-oriented research questions. Successful candidates will also be expected to maintain vigorous, independent research programs with associated external funding that directly address clinically relevant questions in their respective research fields.
