The University of Utah has made a strategic decision to expand its programs in Hematology, Hematologic Malignancies and Cellular Therapy. Our vision is to establish a highly translational and integrated Center of Excellence in Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies that spans the continuum from clinical care to discovery science.

To realize this vision the Division of Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies, Department of Internal Medicine and Huntsman Cancer Institute seek to add junior, mid-career and senior faculty with a strong research portfolio in one or more of the following areas:

1.Myeloid malignancies, ideally with a focus on stem cell biology

2.Lymphoid malignancies

3.Cellular therapy, including hematopoietic stem cell transplant biology.

4.Hematopoiesis, including megakaryocyte biology.

The ideal candidates are physician-scientists or translationally-minded PhD scientists with active laboratory programs (including genetics) and a track record of scientific accomplishment and extramural funding. All M.D. candidates must be ABIM board certified, Board Eligible or Board Certified in Hematology. Recruitments will be supported by competitive start-up packages. Senior and mid-career recruits will have the opportunity to co-recruit junior faculty.

University of Utah Health (U of U Health) is a patient focused center distinguished by collaboration, excellence, leadership, and respect. We value candidates who are committed to fostering and furthering the culture of compassion, collaboration, innovation, accountability, diversity, integrity, quality, and trust that is integral to our mission. At the center of our culture is the belief that we can pursue rigorous research in a collegial environment that provides a safe space for dialectic discourse (and sometimes dispute).
