MAJOR RECRUITMENT DRIVE FOR HEMATOLOGY AND HEMATOLOGIC MALIGNANCIES FACULTY
Like no other discipline, Hematology connects to literally all areas of medicine. Hematologic malignancies encompass many of the most effectively treatable (and sometimes curable) malignancies but also some of the most intractable, debilitating diseases. Thrombotic disorders pose major clinical challenges in multiple settings, including solid organ cancer, sepsis, and surgery. Hematologic dysfunction often complicates autoimmune disease and disorders that fall within the spectrum of fetal-maternal medicine. The University of Utah recognizes that this inherent connectivity renders Hematology a prime field for productive integration across multiple disciplines.
In a coordinated effort with the Huntsman Cancer Institute, the Department of Internal Medicine and the Department of Pathology have combined resources to establish the Huntsman Center of Excellence in Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies as the driving force to harness the transformative power of transdisciplinary clinical-translational research.
Significant resources are being made available to facilitate the recruitment of outstanding faculty whose scientific focus is blood diseases, including both malignant and benign disorders. Positions are available at the assistant professor, associate professor, and professor levels. We are seeking MD, MD PhD, and PhD faculty with a commitment to visionary clinical-translational research. We are looking for applicants with a record of innovation and productivity supported by extramural funding. Recruits will be provided with generous start-up packages with resources sufficient to ensure successful program implementation. Academic appointments will typically reside in the Department of Internal Medicine/Division of Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies.
Our vision is to leverage the power of transdisciplinary collaboration, data integration, and translational research to advance clinical practice, science and education in Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies.
The University of Utah is the state’s flagship academic institution, providing a broad spectrum of education to an increasingly diverse student body. A focus on research and discovery fueled by the legacy of the state’s pioneering spirit and an appreciation for the value of collaboration are the basis for the University’s outsized contributions to medicine and biomedical sciences.
The Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center and the only such facility in the Mountain West, provides tertiary care to residence of a large geographic area with a rapidly growing population. The Huntsman Center of Excellence in Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies will play a central role in HCI’s aspiration to become The Cancer Center of the West.
The Division of Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies currently has 33 faculty members with diverse scientific and clinical interests. For several years, clinical activity and extramural funding have demonstrated a steep upward trajectory. The Division is committed to the core values of excellence, respect, integrity, and diversity. Collaboratively minded candidates with a penchant for scientific discourse will find a welcoming home in our program.
