Position Description

The University of Washington (UW) is recruiting a full-time faculty member in Radiation Oncology on the clinician-educator pathway as an Associate or Full Professor without tenure by reason of funding.  This will be a primarily clinical position with protected time for scholarly activity.  The disease site specialization will be determined based upon the needs of the department, the interests of the candidate and as approved by the Chair.  The successful candidate will build a clinical and translational research program and contribute to all segments of the academic mission.   University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.

The selected candidate will be proposed for appointment to the full-time faculty at the University of Washington on the clinician-educator pathway as an Associate or Full Professor (without tenure by reason of funding) with an anticipated start dates of July 1, 2022.  Associate and full 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.  Appointment rank will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. We are seeking highly motivated applicants to advance our mission of clinical care, research, education, and equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

UW Medicine and its partner institutions (UWMC, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center, Seattle Proton Center, Seattle Children’s Hospital, VA Puget Sound) provide an extensive and outstanding array of radiation oncology modalities for cancer patients.  Technical capabilities of the Department include 8 Elekta linear accelerators, 1 Varian Ethos, IMRT, VMAT and SBRT capability, Gammaknife radiosurgery with the Perfexion ICON system for multi-fraction SRT; 7 CT simulators, direct access to MRI and PET/CT based planning; Pinnacle, CMS, Raystation, MIM, LDR and HDR brachytherapy, IORT, intravascular brachytherapy, respiratory gating, C-RAD and Calypso beacon localization. Proton Therapy and an active Neutron Therapy program further broaden the technical capabilities and therapy options.

Department Overview:
The Department of Radiation Oncology treats over 2,800 patients annually from a multi-state region covering over 25% of the U.S. geographic area. The University of Washington has the only Radiation Oncology department in North America that has clinical particle beam delivery systems for both proton and neutron therapy.  Our clinical approach is collaborative with numerous multidisciplinary clinics and tumor boards. We enjoy strong collaborations with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  The Department has 29 physicians, 8 advanced practice providers, 26 physicists, and 3 research faculty.  Educational opportunities in our residency programs, fellowship programs and post-doctoral fellowships abound. A strong interest and commitment to research and education is expected, as well as strong collaboration with the multidisciplinary clinical teams.

The City of Seattle:
The city of Seattle is in proximity to the Pacific coast and mountains with ample year-round outdoor recreational activities.  The city’s rich arts and cultural scene make it one of the most geographically and culturally desirable places to live in the U.S.  Seattle offers ample opportunity to attend professional sports venues, a myriad of museums and restaurants, music and other cultural events, as well as many outdoor activities, including skiing, boating, walking, hiking and biking, in close vicinity. Natural beauty lies within close reach of the city as Washington hosts expansive parks, forests, lakes and mountains.
