We seek a highly motivated, faculty-level (clinician scientist or clinical track) candidate at the Associate or Assistant Member level with training in pediatric hematology-oncology, a proven track of excellence in academic potential, and a strong interest in clinical/translational research and clinical care activities. The preferred candidate should also have experience in mentorship and fellowship training within the academic setting.

This position will report directly to the Director of the Solid Tumor Division, lead clinical research in identified sub-disease fields, and provide patient care services in collaboration and under the leadership of the Division Director, Director of Oncology Clinical Medicine, and the Chair.  


The Department of Oncology provides a highly collaborative and interactive environment where faculty members have ample opportunities to participate in clinical, educational, and translational research initiatives.  As an integral team member of the division, the faculty member in the Solid Tumor Division ensures alignment of individual goals with divisional, departmental, and institutional strategic goals and initiatives, pursues faculty development and promotes outstanding multidisciplinary care delivery and research activities.  This position will also incorporate clinical education into daily practice to ensure the satisfactory learning experience of Hem-Onc fellows, residents, and medical school students in the Solid Tumor outpatient clinic and Solid Tumor/Neuro-Onc combined inpatient service. 


It is essential that candidates have an MD, MD/PhD or DO degree and be Board certified or Board-eligible in pediatric hematology-oncology.  Successful candidates will have expertise in the areas of hematology and oncology, as the faculty member will be involved in clinical care.
