Endowed Professorship in Clinical Cancer Immunotherapy

Oncologist Job

The Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC) at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health invite applications from accomplished board-certified clinician-scientists to join our highly collaborative NCI-funded Immunology and Cancer Immunotherapy Program.  The appointment is available at either the Associate Professor or full Professor level, and an endowed Professorship is available to qualified candidates.

We seek an outstanding and collaborative individual with an established track record of innovative translational research focusing on immunotherapy and/or cell therapy clinical trials. This individual will work closely with other members of the Cancer Center’s interdepartmental Immunology and Cancer Immunotherapy Research Program to expand a robust clinical trials portfolio of investigator-initiated immunotherapy studies, NCI Network (NCTN, ETCTN) trials, and industry-sponsored studies.  A generous start-up package is available including extensive protected time to pursue laboratory and clinical research. Dartmouth has a long history of seminal discoveries in immunotherapy, including currently active trials of next-generation immune checkpoint inhibition, CAR T cell therapy, and cancer vaccines, as well as robust research programs in T cell memory, NK receptor-based CAR T cells, and the tumor microenvironment.

NCCC, one of 51 NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, offers a dynamic and interactive research and clinical environment, with a commitment to research excellence commensurate with Dartmouth’s status as an R1 Doctoral University in the Carnegie Classification. The successful candidate will have access to state-of-the-art research facilities, including a vibrant NCI-funded Immune Monitoring Shared Resource.  The candidate’s research program will also benefit from thriving multidisciplinary Cancer Biology and Immunology graduate programs, as well as access to trainees within the Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program. NCCC members also benefit from highly collaborative and collegial interactions across the entirety of Dartmouth College and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health System, inclusive of other departments at Geisel, the School of Arts & Sciences, the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, the Thayer School of Engineering and the Tuck School of Business. Candidates may also benefit from interactions with three current NIH Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBREs), a well-developed NCCC Office of Clinical Research, and access to Dartmouth’s supercomputing networks.

Applicants for this position should possess an M.D., or M.D/Ph.D. degree (or equivalent), clinical board certification, outstanding scientific training and an established track record of research accomplishments in tumor immunology and immunotherapy. The prospective individual should also have extensive experience in the conduct of clinical trials and clinical expertise in immunotherapy and/or cellular therapy. Independent peer-reviewed grant funding is highly desirable, but not required.

Applicants should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research accomplishments and goals (not to exceed 3 pages)  and ask three references to provide letters of recommendation. Application review will remain open and continue until the position is filled.  Dartmouth and Dartmouth-Hitchcock are highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds, including but not limited to: racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, veterans, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower-income backgrounds, and/or first-generation college graduates. Applicants should state in their cover letter how their research, service, teaching, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
