The Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego (http://med.ucsd.edu/) is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.

Candidate(s) must have an MD and be board certified/board eligible in Nephrology and have or be eligible for a California medical license or equivalent certification/permit as determined by the California Medical Board.

We seek individuals who have completed training in both general nephrology and a dedicated year of kidney transplant fellowship.

Experience in any of the following specialty areas are preferred:

Kidney Transplant:

The Division’s kidney transplant program has increased considerably and we seek individuals who have completed training in both general nephrology and a dedicated year of kidney transplant fellowship.

Palliative Care:

With the burden of pain and end-of-life concerns among CKD and ESRD patients, the Division plans to expand its program in CKD palliative care.

Individuals who have completed training in both disciplines are encouraged to apply.


The Division holds an O’Brien Center/P30 award focused on Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), and is seeking to expand its group of clinician investigators who dedicate their research efforts to understanding new risk factors for AKI. Applicants with this interest will have an established publication track record and evidence of ability to secure independent grant funding in research in AKI.
