Head of Personalized Medicine - Radiation Oncology - (16000133)
Established in 1807, the School of Medicine is the first public and the fifth oldest medical school in the United States and the first to institute a residency training program. The School of Medicine was the founding school of the University of Maryland and today is an integral part of the 11-campus University System of Maryland. On the University of Maryland's Baltimore campus, the School of Medicine serves as the anchor for a large academic health center that aims to provide the best medical education, conduct the most innovative biomedical research, and provide the best patient care and community service to Maryland and beyond. While its tradition of excellence remains constant, the School of Medicine and its reputation for academic achievement continue to grow.
The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is seeking a Head, Personalized Medicine Radiation Oncology. The Department of Radiation Oncology pursues excellence in advances in clinical care, translational radiation research, and medical physics. These activities are well integrated under the department's three divisions and through ongoing collaborations with colleagues in the UM Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center, other clinical disciplines, and a broad range of basic sciences. With the opening of the Maryland Proton Treatment Center earlier this year, the new Maryland Proton Alliance is focusing on additional internal and external research initiatives.
Research in the department is led by Chair William F. Regine, MD, and by the Department of Radiation Oncology's experienced Executive Research Council (ERC), including Zeljko Vujaskovic, MD, PhD, Warren D'Souza, PhD, MBA, and Steven Feigenberg, MD, who respectively head the translational, physics, and clinical divisions. The ERC identifies investigative priorities, sets research policy, encourages new research through seed grants and collaborations with other University of Maryland system colleagues, and provides forward-looking guidance in ensuring that all research efforts contribute to our goal of rapidly advancing basic discoveries to patient benefit and enhanced scientific understanding.
- A PhD or equivalent is required.
- Strong history of federal grant support, including funding through NIH.
