Qualified candidates who have completed a Ph.D or equivalent degree from a recognized institution of higher learning. Applicants must have satisfactorily completed a minimum of 24 semester hours (or equivalent) in undergraduate and/or graduate level chemistry courses plus a minimum of 4 semester-hours (or equivalent) in biochemistry courses at the graduate level to meet certification eligibility requirements by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry.
|| Applications for the Clinical Chemistry Fellowship are accepted through the UC Recruit online system. Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae and three letters of recommendation via the UC Recruit online system.
Selected applicants will be required to complete a formal application and submit transcripts of graduate and undergraduate records. Interview is required and will include a seminar presentation.
|| We will accept on-line applications from July 1, 2016 through October 1st, 2016 for a position starting July 1, 2017. Our on-line application may be accessed at https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/JPF02151.
The program’s mission is to prepare those with a PhD for a career in academic clinical chemistry including service, teaching, and research activities and to be certified by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry in Chemistry and Molecular Diagnostics. The training will be conducted in diverse environments; a Clinical Hospital laboratory (Ronald Reagan Hospital), a Reference laboratory (Bruin University Reference Laboratory), a Performance Enhancing Drug Testing Laboratory (Olympic Analytical Laboratory), and a Molecular Diagnostics laboratory all at the UCLA Medical Center. These environments require excellence in different skill sets and this exposure will give the fellow a broad perspective of career choices. The program will provide training in the operation of a high complexity clinical laboratory which includes but is not limited to; lab management, compliance, quality assurance, laboratory information systems, informatics, and curriculum specified by ComACC. The program will also stress molecular diagnostic testing, genetics, quality initiatives and the application of laboratory test results to the management of patients. The trainee will also be expected to participate in applied clinical, translational or basic science research with a UCLA faculty member.
