Roswell Park Cancer Institute Building Their Myeloma Program

The Department of Medicine is seeking a full-time medical oncologist or hematologist at the Associate or full Professor level to lead our Multiple Myeloma Program.  The Multiple Myeloma Program adds to existing vibrant multidisciplinary teams of lymphoma, leukemia and BMT physicians and scientists dedicated to understanding and treating hematologic malignancies. Responsibilities include leadership of the Multiple Myeloma Program, outpatient clinics, inpatient lymphoma service, clinical and translational research, participation and leadership in clinical trials, as well as teaching and supervision of fellows.  Applicants are required to be BC/BE in oncology or hematology and be eligible for a NY State Medical License.  The Program Chief will report directly to the Chair Department of Medicine and collaborate with the Chief of the Lymphoma Section in providing comprehensive care. The search committee will consider clinical and translational research interests, publication record, and commitment to clinical care and teaching.  Academic rank and compensation are dependent upon qualifications and years of experience.  Faculty will also have a joint appointment at the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine. RPCI offers a generous fringe benefits package.

Since 1898, Roswell Park Cancer Institute has forged an exemplary reputation with the combined strength of its basic/translational research, multidisciplinary oncology teams, educational programs and compassionate staff. A seamless interface of scientific inquiry and clinical application and an aggressive clinical trials program, Roswell Park commits the infrastructure, intellectual capital and necessary resources to convert scientific discoveries into real-world products and applications. A charter member of the NCCN, Roswell Park is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in Upstate New York.

RPCI’s contributions to reducing the global cancer toll include initiating the world's first chemotherapy program; pioneering the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, photodynamic therapy and the combination chemotherapy of leucovorin and 5-FU (the gold standard for colon cancer treatment); developing the RPMI 1640 Culture Media (used in research labs around the world); and collaborating on landmark studies related to the Human Genome Project. Roswell Park initiated one of the nation's first centers dedicated to Early Phase Clinical Trials and drives innovative cancer research in genetics, cell stress and immunotherapy, leading to new personalized treatments.
