The Section of Radiation Oncology at Dartmouth-Hitchcock and the Norris Cotton Cancer (NCCC) at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in Lebanon, NH is seeking outstanding clinician-scientists with the capacity to develop vigorous, innovative, and translational research programs. Candidates must have an MD, MD/PhD or equivalent degree and be board-certified or board-eligible in Radiation Oncology. NCCC is one of 47 centers to earn the National Cancer Institute's (NCI’s) "Comprehensive Cancer Center" designation. Successful candidates will join the professional staff of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic and will receive a faculty appointment from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth (Geisel), with rank commensurate with experience. We seek candidates who are qualified to hold the rank of Assistant Professor, although more senior candidates may be considered.
Successful candidates will be afforded non-clinical time such that they will be able to commit more than the majority of their effort to the development of a basic or translational science research program consistent with the goals of the Section and NCCC. The balance of responsibilities will include patient care for the general radiation oncology patient population and contribution to the educational mission via potential teaching obligations of radiobiology to residents, cancer biology to PhD students, and/or other teaching commensurate with clinical duties.
NCCC offers a dynamic environment with a commitment to research excellence and highly collaborative faculty with interactions across Geisel, Arts & Sciences, and the Thayer School of Engineering. In addition to NCCC, candidates may benefit from interactions with four NIH Centers for Biomedical Research Excellence and Dartmouth’s CTSA. A generous start-up package and access to state-of-the-art research facilities will be provided.
