Assistant or Associate Professor (WOT), Medical Oncology (Gastrointestinal Cancer)
The University of Washington (UW) Department of Medicine and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (Fred Hutch) are jointly recruiting for a full-time faculty member in the Division of Medical Oncology, to engage in clinical research and clinical care of patients with gastrointestinal cancers. This position would be at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank (without tenure due to funding). Salary and academic appointment at University of Washington will be commensurate with experience, qualifications, and academic rank. Assistant professors (WOT) are eligible for multi-year appointments and associate professors (WOT) hold indefinite appointments that both align with a 12- month service period (July 1-June 30). Faculty with 12-month service periods are paid for 11 months of service over a 12-month period (July-June), meaning the equivalent of one month is available for paid time off. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research, and service. The selected candidate will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing funded clinical and laboratory research programs related to the biology and treatment of cancer. In addition, the candidate will have the opportunity and resources to develop his/her own clinical research program. The position will also involve participation in the clinical and instructional activities of the Division of Medical Oncology. Teaching responsibilities would involve oversight of housestaff and fellows during ambulatory and inpatient activities and delivery of lectures to housestaff, fellows, and the general medical community.
Anticipated start date would be June 2023.
NOTE: This position will require work to be performed on-site at a Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) facility. SCCA requires all individuals, including University of Washington faculty clinicians, working at an SCCA facility to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Unlike UW’s vaccination policy which is appended below, the SCCA policy does not provide for religious or medical exemptions. As such, a UW offer associated with this recruitment is contingent upon, among other things, the preferred candidate demonstrating that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by no later than the commencement of their appointment.
The candidate must have a demonstrated record in clinical research with a primary focus on gastrointestinal cancer.
Requirements include MD (or foreign equivalent), completion of a fellowship in Medical Oncology and/or Hematology (or foreign equivalent), and American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) eligible or certified in Medical Oncology or Hematology (or foreign equivalent). In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-U.S.) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a concise statement of their training, research activities, career goals and list of references, as well as a diversity statement of past and planned contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion, along with a letter of application addressed to Dr. E. Gabriela Chiorean.
