The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the Penn State Children’s Hospital and the Penn State University College of Medicine is recruiting a Director of the Pediatric Neuro-oncology Program. Pediatric Hematologist/Oncologists with expertise in treatment of pediatric brain tumors and an established record of accomplishment in patient care, clinical research, and/or teaching are encouraged to apply. Candidates must be board certified or eligible in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. Rank is at the Assistant to Full Professor level, commensurate with experience, accomplishments and leadership. Opportunities for program development and support of research are significant.
The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology currently has 13 full-time and 1 part-time Pediatric Hematologists/Oncologists, and 12 Ph.D. faculty. Over 100 new oncology patients are seen annually, and in addition to neuro-oncology, there are dedicated programs in pediatric stem cell transplantation, experimental therapeutics, survivorship, AYA oncology, hemophilia, and sickle cell disease. The division has an accredited Pediatric Hem/Onc fellowship program and is an active member of COG, PBMTC, POETIC, and the NMTRC.
