Job Overview

As one of the oldest medical schools in the country, the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine (COM) has a reputation for training best-in-class health care professionals and developing cutting-edge procedures and research that improves the health and clinical care of patients. In partnership with the UC Health academic healthcare system and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, College of Medicine’s doctors are transforming the world of medicine every day. The Division of Hematology and Oncology is a top-tier department with nationally-renowned faculty and staff.

This is a dynamic and aspirational time for cancer care and research at the University of Cincinnati (UC). The University of Cincinnati Cancer Center (UCCC) was recently reorganized, in alignment with UC’s forward-thinking strategic planning towards achieving NCI-designation. Reporting to the Division Director of Hematology and Oncology, the Center Director will contribute to this transformation of cancer care at UC as a clinician, researcher, educator and highly collaborative leader. This is an academic position with protected time for research, teaching, administration and generous resources for faculty recruitment and program building. Compensation is highly competitive with the opportunity for incentives based on clinical and/or academic productivity.

Elevating the cancer enterprise at UC and achieving NCI-designation is an institutional priority and mission, and the Center Director will be a critical contributor in achieving this mission. The Center Director will apply strong administrative acumen and visioning to harness current institutional momentum and investments. Clinical researchers have access to services through the University of Cincinnati's Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training (CCTST), the academic home of the UC's institutional Clinical and Translational Science Award from the NIH. In addition, the UC cancer clinical trials office manages oncology trials for all cancer-related clinical departments, with teams organized by disease groups.

Seeking to achieve NCI designation in the years ahead, UCCC has engaged in ongoing investments and strategic initiatives toward this end. Senior leadership across the university, the college of medicine, the health system and the cancer center are fully aligned in implementing a comprehensive vision that will build and support a nationally recognized cancer program that excels in all spheres: clinical care, research, education and training, and community impact.
