The Department of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) is seeking a tenure-track System Chief for its Division of Neonatology. The candidate, who must be board certified in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine, should be committed to developing a program of excellence in research, clinical care and education. A strong academic background with an outstanding record of achievement in clinical/translational (T0-T4) and/or basic research is highly desirable. Candidates must show evidence of leadership with strong administrative and interpersonal skills.
The ISMMS and Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) provide a stimulating intellectual environment that is ideally suited for the individual who seeks to combine clinical service with the pursuit of academic goals.

The MSHS oversees more than 14,000 deliveries per year (8000+ at MSH). The 46 bed Level IV NICU at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital (located on 5th Ave. on the Upper East Side) cares for an average of 50 babies each day with medical and/or surgical needs including common problems associated with prematurity, congenital heart disease, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, severe chronic lung disease, rare metabolic conditions, liver, intestinal and kidney failure, and a broad array of congenital anomalies. Neonatal ECMO support is integral part of our care for the most critically ill infants. A second non-surgical level III NICU (35 beds) is located at Mount Sinai West (near Lincoln Center on the Upper West Side). The MSHS is the largest health system in NY State. Within the MSHS, the Mount Sinai Medical Center encompasses the Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) and the ISMMS. MSH, founded in 1852, serves one of the most diverse and complex patient populations in the world. The ISMMS, which opened its doors in 1968 (and was recently renamed in 2013), has a long and distinguished tradition of excellence in clinical/translational and basic research, as well as in innovative patient care, professional education, and community involvement. The ISMMS ranks among the top 15 U.S. medical schools in NIH research funding and was ranked 12th in the most recent (2019-20) U.S. News and World Report’ survey of America’s Best Graduate Schools.
