Position Summary:

The Division of Hematology, Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant seeks a tenure track physician-scientist with an interest in laboratory and translational research of pediatric cancers. Special consideration will be given to candidates with expertise in immunotherapy (antibody or cell-based therapies) or bone marrow transplant, although any interest in laboratory research of childhood cancer will be considered. Candidates with either interest in, or an actively funded, research program are encouraged to apply.

We participate in numerous research consortia including the COG, PTCTC, PIDTC, MARCH, NEXT, St. Baldrick's/SU2C Pediatric Cancer Dream Team, and the Pediatric Cancer Immunotherapy Trials Network. We encourage translation of laboratory research into clinical trials at the adjacent American Family Children's Hospital and conduct many novel investigator-initiated as well as industry-sponsored studies.

We offer a friendly, collegial work environment and support mentoring at all levels as well as work-life balance. Modern, well-equipped laboratory space will be provided, as well as start-up laboratory support. Madison, WI, is the state capital and a medium-sized city and college town, with abundant recreational, cultural and culinary activities, outstanding schools and affordable cost of living.
