Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant: Immunocompromised Infectious Disease
About the Job
The World’s Most Dedicated Never Give Up
Think of what you could achieve if the best possible care was all that mattered. If you had the encouragement and opportunity to truly bond with the patients in your care. And if you could collaborate with the world’s brightest scientists, in a bench-to-bedside environment that put you on the leading edge of clinical breakthroughs for children with cancer, sickle cell, and other life-threatening diseases. It’s possible at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As a clinical professional with us, you’ll be part of a team that gives our all to make a difference in the lives of patients with the rarest of conditions. All while receiving the resources and support you need to advance your career and be the force behind the cures.
As a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant on our Infectious Disease Team, your focus will be working with immune compromised children, joining a pioneering team that focuses on the pathogenesis of these infections with a breadth of commitment that extends from the research bench to the bedside. You'll work collaboratively as part of a multi-disciplinary healthcare team, collaborating in the development of treatment plans, and coordinating patient care with ancillary clinical services.
Here at St. Jude, we set the standard in pediatric cancer care, and we encourage applicants whose aspirations match the caliber of our work. If you are independent, driven, and believe in mission-driven work that embraces the challenge of a new tomorrow, we'd love to have you apply.
