The University of Iowa Department of Anesthesia is seeking an accomplished academic anesthesiologist to serve as chief of its Division of Multispecialty Anesthesia. Anesthesia for the following surgical specialties are included in this division: general surgery, otolaryngology, oral surgery, vascular surgery, trauma surgery, urology, transplant surgery, and ophthalmology. This position is available at the rank of associate professor or professor in the clinical or tenure track.

The division chief will be responsible for actualizing our tripartite mission--clinical care, education, and research—as it relates to general anesthesiology or anesthesiology within subspecialty areas of practice. These responsibilities include:
  • Collaborating with medical directors to lead clinical operations to ensure consistently high-quality patient care with efficient and innovative use of clinical and material resources
  • Promoting effective collaborations among divisional faculty and other clinical and research faculty across campus
  • Facilitating undergraduate and graduate medical education

  • Developing innovative scholarship in multidisciplinary anesthesia

  • Seed funding for research as well as statistical and clinical trial support
  • NIH-funded Institute for Clinical and Translational Science, which includes collaboration with investigators from all 11 colleges on campus
  • Internal and external professional development support
