The Center for Liver Disease Research Center (Laura Nagy, Ph.D. Center Director) in the Department of Inflammation and Immunity in the Lerner Research Institute at the Cleveland Clinic seeks investigators who use multidisciplinary approaches to determine the underlying causes of and develop new treatments for liver diseases and/or systemic diseases that prominently involve the liver, particularly alcohol- and non-alcohol associated liver disease. Metabolic liver diseases are a growing public health problem, both nationally and internationally, with few effective FDA approved therapeutic strategies. We seek individuals that can communicate across fields to tackle fundamental issues in this field. Candidates should have demonstrated expertise in human and/or model experimental systems that can include cellular, molecular, computational and animal model systems approaches that will enable exploration of mechanism.


Individuals will receive faculty appointments at the Assistant Staff  (equivalent to Assistant Professor) in the Department of Inflammation and Immunity in the Lerner Research Institute and for physician-scientists, joint appointments in clinical institutes, as appropriate. New recruits will join a highly collaborative environment within the Department of Inflammation and Immunity, the Northern Ohio Alcohol Center (https://www.lerner.ccf.org/alcoholcenter/) and the Center for Microbiome and Human Health (http://cmhh.ccf.org/). Cleveland Clinic provides outstanding opportunities for interactions with basic and translational investigators, as well as with clinicians from multiple specialties. Outstanding facilities, generous start-up funds, and ongoing operational support will be provided. We have world class core facilities with the opportunity to grow them through the substantial expansion of the Lerner Research Institute through the formation of  the Global Center for Pathogen Research and Human Health.


The Lerner Research Institute, with nearly 190 independent investigators in 8 departments and an annual budget of ~ $300 million, has a commitment to excellence in basic, translational and clinical research, with an emphasis on interactive, collaborative research. Faculty typically also become members of the Molecular Medicine Graduate Training Program and other programs at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, providing access to excellent Ph.D. students.
