DANA-FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE
Dedicated to Discovery…Committed to Care
Medical Oncologist or Medical Geneticist interested in Cancer Genetics, Division of Cancer Genetics and Prevention
The Division of Cancer Genetics and Prevention at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital is searching for a medical oncologist or geneticist to provide clinical care to adult individuals interested in genetically defining their cancer risks, and, as appropriate, managing those risks. The candidate would see individuals at risk for a comprehensive range of cancers, and work with genetic counselors and a diverse team of physicians at Dana-Farber and our satellite sites. For medical oncologists, a focus in oncology care would be possible, because responsibilities could include some medical oncology clinical care as well as some time attending on the Dana-Farber inpatient service at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, depending on the candidate’s interests and experience. This would not apply to a medical geneticist, who might be able to arrange some time in pediatric cancer genetics or general adult genetics at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital as part of the responsibilities, if important to the candidate. The successful candidate will be board-certified or eligible, and will engage in teaching students, house staff, and fellows in the clinic.
The academic appointment will be at the Instructor, Assistant or Associate Professor level at Harvard Medical School and determined by the applicant's credentials. Salary and benefits will be competitive with other institutions. Applicants should have an MD or equivalent degree and may also have an MPH or PhD or equivalent. MD/PhD degree and should be board certified or board eligible in Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology or Medical Genetics.
