The successful candidate must have an interest in caring for pulmonary and critical care patients and possess academic credentials that will qualify them for an academic appointment.

This unique multi-disciplinary center provides synergy for cutting edge therapies and novel basic and clinical research, as well as educational activities that span the continuum of medical and surgical care of patients with common to rare lung disorders.

In addition to a competitive salary, and comprehensive suite of benefits – including a generous 403b retirement match, health, dental, vision, life, malpractice, paid vacation, CME, and more – the position offers a uniquely supportive practice environment strengthened by Temple’s mission-driven culture to provide and promote world class patient care, research, and teaching.
