Position Details


Position Description

The University of Washington (UW) Department of Medicine and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (FHCC) are jointly recruiting a full-time faculty member in the UW Division of Medical Oncology, specializing in research and clinical care of patients with sarcoma. This position would be at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank (without tenure due to funding), commensurate with experience and qualifications, and include an equivalent appointment at Fred Hutch. Assistant professors WOT are eligible for multi-year appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30). Associate Professors WOT hold indefinite appointments that 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. 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. 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. This position will be expected to fulfill our commitment to institutional service and diversity, equity and inclusion

The Sarcoma program at UW and Fred Hutch is a rapidly growing, regional referral center attracting patients from throughout the Washington-Wyoming-Alaska-Montana-Idaho (WWAMI) region and Hawaii. In addition to a thriving multidisciplinary clinical practice, our investigators are leaders in research, with over 30 current industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated clinical trials. Faculty benefit from the rich research environment and shared resources of both institutions. Life in the Pacific Northwest is an added bonus – with opportunities for arts, culture, sports and outdoor pursuits.

University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.

Anticipated start date would be January 2023.
