Title: Assistant or Associate Professor Without Tenure, Outpatient Clinic Assistant Director/Physician Director, Infectious Disease Sciences (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases)

Position Details

Position Description

The Vaccine and Infectious Disease and Clinical Research Divisions (VIDD and CRD) of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch) seek applicants for a full-time faculty position (12-month indefinite appointment) as assistant or associate professor in the clinician/scholar track to serve as Outpatient Clinic Assistant/Associate Director for our clinical service at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). The position also serves as Physician Director to develop a new Outside Consult Request Service. The SCCA is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutch, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. This position carries a joint appointment as assistant or associate professor (without tenure for reasons of funding [WOT]), in the Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine. 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. This position will have clinical, teaching, and research responsibilities.   The duties of this position include publishing in the field of infectious diseases and teaching infectious disease trainees at the student, resident, and fellow level, and mentoring. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service. The anticipated start date is August 2022.

This position will serve the clinical, patient and employee health and safety needs of the SCCA with the clinic expansion at their South Lake Union site and for faculty and staff at the Fred Hutch campus, while also building a nationally and internationally recognized program in patient care for infectious diseases in the immunocompromised host, both scientifically and by training the next generation of experts in this area. The responsibilities include serving as the Outpatient Assistant/Associate Clinic Director for our service at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), managing a national and international consultation service. The incumbent will serve as the Infectious Disease faculty liaison for the SCCA and Fred Hutch Employee Health and Safety programs and support employee vaccination programs and other efforts in collaboration with Infection Prevention. The successful applicant would be an active member of the Infectious Disease Consult Team seeing patients in both the inpatient and outpatient departments and supervising our Infectious Disease Advanced Practice Providers and nurse, in addition to serving as the primary liaison to oncology/hematology teams and services. This position will have a significant scholarly component, which will establish the faculty member as a leader in their field. Areas of potential research include infections in the immunocompromised host and interventional trials to reduce the burden of infectious complications in cancer patients as well as innovative strategies for protecting employees from major seasonal and pandemic pathogens. This individual would work closely with the Infection Prevention and Antimicrobial Stewardship teams.

The primary appointment will be in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division at the Fred Hutch, with a secondary appointment in the Clinical Research Division and the University of Washington’s Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine. 

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is a world-renowned research institution with a wealth of scientific and clinical expertise in basic biologic sciences, human biology, clinical research, epidemiology, biostatistics, and cancer prevention research. VIDD is the home of an extensive portfolio of population science and laboratory-based research and has a large multidisciplinary faculty, with a vision statement to eliminate disease and death attributable to infections. Fred Hutch offers active training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows and offers exceptional opportunities for scientific interactions with other investigators in the Seattle area.
