Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program Director

The Center for Cancer Research (CCR), a division of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), announces a call for applications for the Director of the NIH Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program.

This is an exciting opportunity to oversee the NIH intramural research program’s renowned, ACGME-accredited hematology/oncology fellowship, an established world leader that has trained over 600 academic physician scientists, many becoming leaders in the field. The Director will supervise and mentor 40 participating clinical fellows, develop the educational curriculum, coordinate schedules and rotations, and ensure the program meets accreditation requirements with the goal of preparing participants for board eligibility in oncology and/or hematology and leadership in clinical research. The selected candidate may also carry out clinical research funded by the Center for Cancer Research; however, at least 50% of the candidate’s time must be devoted to the Fellowship Program.

An attractive Federal Government employee benefits package includes health and life insurance coverage, a retirement savings program, student loan repayment and relocation expenses.  

The CCR is the NCI’s internal, federally funded cancer center where world leading physician-scientists are working on the cutting edge of medicine, developing clinical trials of new, sometimes “first-in-human” drugs and new treatment approaches. Closely knit clinical support teams are providing excellent quality of care for our patients and carrying out our clinical protocols with professionalism and compassion at the world’s largest dedicated research hospital on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Join our unique and rewarding clinical research environment.

Eligibility

Applicants must hold an M.D., D.O., or equivalent degree and be ABIM board certified in Medical Oncology or Hematology with at least three years of experience beyond Hematology/Oncology training with faculty level experience in an ACGME accredited program.  Prior mentoring, administrative, or leadership experience in an accredited fellowship training program is preferred. 

Candidates may be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or possess (or be eligible for) an appropriate work visa and must have successfully completed subspecialty training at a U.S. accredited institution.
