Cellular Therapy/Transfusion Medicine Opportunity at the
University of California, Benioff Children’s Hospital, Oakland, CA

The Department of Laboratory Medicine is seeking a Clinical Pathology and Transfusion Medicine and/or Hematopathology specialist for a faculty position at the Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland (BCH-Oak), CA.

The medical director works with staff in the laboratory to ensure procedures for testing and matching blood products are updated and appropriate as well as consulting with UCSF clinical teams on appropriate utilization of blood products. This position will also involve work in cell therapy development for clinical and translational research use. These therapies will be developed with emphasis of treating hemoglobinopathies and other inherited hematopoietic disorders. The BCH-Oak-based medical director will also be involved in other laboratory services, including hematopathology and flow cytometry signouts.

The successful candidate will work with the other Medical Directors at the other UCSF sites to implement the academic mission of the UCSF Clinical Pathology service, which includes training of residents and fellows. The successful candidate will be part of a team of Pathologists working in the BCH-Oak Clinical Laboratories.
