The Division of Medical Oncology in the Department of Medicine and the Duke Cancer Institute is actively recruiting for Clinician-Educators and Clinician-Investigators with experience and/or disease subspecialization in breast, gastrointestinal (GI) genitourinary (GU), and/or thoracic oncology. We have opportunities at our three hospital cancer centers at Duke University Hospital, Duke Raleigh Hospital, and Duke Regional Hospital. All levels of academic rank with potential for academic funding support are being recruited. The positions offer academic rank, competitive salary, and start-up package commensurate with experience plus clinical and research incentives, annual funds for continuing education, and relocation funding.
The ideal candidate would help in the clinical management of disease-specific solid tumor patients, develop clinical or translational research efforts, and continue our excellence in teaching. Our oncology presence across the Duke Health System has grown significantly over the last few years in conjunction with the growing Research Triangle Region of central North Carolina, and thus we offer tremendous research and clinical opportunities.
As a world-class academic and health care system, Duke Health strives to transform medicine and health locally and globally through innovative scientific research, rapid translation of breakthrough discoveries, educating future clinical and scientific leaders, advocating and practicing evidence-based medicine to improve community health, and leading efforts to eliminate health inequalities.
The Duke Division of Medical Oncology is internationally recognized for its novel approaches to treating patients with solid tumor malignancies. Our team treats hundreds of patients annually with various types of solid tumors including genitourinary, gastrointestinal, thoracic, soft tissue, breast, endocrine, head and neck, and skin malignancies. Specialists in medicine, surgery, radiation therapy, pathology, radiology and palliative care who concentrate in the care of patients with solid tumor malignancies meet at least weekly to review difficult cases, debate new therapy plans, and formulate treatment algorithms. Duke’s clinicians and scientists work in close proximity, bringing patients the benefit of a true “bench-to-bedside” approach to care that offers promising new therapies quickly to those who need them most. The result of these efforts is a program unsurpassed in our service region and unequaled in most parts of the country or the world.
The Research Triangle Park is a globally prominent hub for high-tech research and development. Conceived around three major universities in Durham, Chapel Hill and Raleigh, the region attracts and fosters cultural diversity, economic resilience, and is nationally recognized as a great place to live and work.
