Position Summary

The Division of Hematology-Oncology is seeking a full-time medical oncologist to join a growing multidisciplinary team with a focus on hematologic malignancies, including myeloma, lymphoma, and leukemia. The successful candidate would also collaborate with existing staff to provide support for benign hematology, as well as blood and bone marrow transplantaton. General expertise in hematologic malignancies would be supplemented by a more specific academic career focus, such as myeloma. Faculty share coverage for our inpatient BMT, oncology, and consult services at UA Medical Center, and rotations are adjusted according to preference. Our faculty also participate in disease-focused clinics and tumor boards at our North Campus outpatient center, as well as our community-based academic practice located in Northwest Tucson. The successful candidate will be a member of the University of Arizona Cancer Center, the only NCI-designated comprehensive Cancer Center based in Arizona. Programmatic information is available on-line at http://azcc.arizona.edu and specific questions can be directed to Michael Bookman, Division Chief, mbookman@email.arizona.edu. The College of Medicine recognizes the value of diversity of people, thought, perspective and experience.

The College's commitment to creating and supporting programs that enhance diversity of thought, background, ethnicity and perspective, and which attract a diverse faculty to serve diverse populations is evident in part through the following programs: the National Center of Excellence in Women's Health, the Arizona Hispanic Center of Excellence, the Office of Outreach and Multicultural Affairs, the Native American Research and Training Center, and the award winning Telemedicine program. The department is seeking an individual who is able to work with diverse students, trainees and colleagues, and who has experience with a variety of teaching methods and curricular perspectives. Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
