The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Department of Pediatrics, seeks an outstanding pediatric hematologist to join the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology.
The successful candidate will provide care to children with cancer and blood disorders with an emphasis on non-malignant hematology and outreach efforts and will participate in the continued growth of clinical and translational research that are fundamentally important as we strive to improve outcomes for children with these diseases. Embedded within Pediatric Hematology/Oncology are several high-profile clinical programs in addition to the state-funded Sickle Cell Program, such as the Hemostasis Thrombosis program within which is the 340B-funded Hemophilia Treatment Center and the Young Women's Hematology Program. The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology has five non-malignant hematologists with national reputations as clinicians and clinician-scientists, and an additional four hematology-focused advanced practice providers with niche-focused expertise. Candidates must have strong clinical and scholarly backgrounds, outstanding teaching skills, experience in basic, clinical, or translational research, and previous leadership experience.
While the program has broad interests and many potential opportunities for the successful candidate in non-malignant hematology, particular areas of interest include: a) focused clinical expertise on sickle cell disease and hemoglobinopathies; b) hematology education with a focus on teaching techniques, evidence-based teaching strategies, medical education scholarship, and contributing to career development for junior hematologists and fellows who are new to or in the early phases of medical education careers.
The successful candidate will join a large and growing Hematology/Oncology Division with robust clinical, research, and educational programs. He or she will enjoy the exceptionally rich biomedical research enterprise at UT Southwestern Medical Center, including the NCI-designated Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, the McDermott Center for Human Growth and Development, the Green Center for Systems Biology, and the Children's Medical Center Research Institute. Competitive start-up packages and compensation/benefits will be provided. Consideration may be given to applicants seeking less than a full-time status.
Clinical facilities include the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Health, Dallas, which is adjacent to UT Southwestern Medical Center, as well as Children’s Health Plano and UT Southwestern Medical Center Frisco. As one of the nation's largest pediatric cancer and blood disease programs (approximately 300 new oncology and over 700 new hematology patients per year) in the nation's fourth largest metropolitan area, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center offers a superb milieu for career development.
Potential candidates should apply online on the UT Southwestern website (Search for Job #394320) and upload a curriculum vitae and a letter of interest.

About University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center
UT Southwestern Medical Center is distinctive for its overall quality and for the strength of its three core missions of education, research, and patient care. These mission components are highly interdependent; each is integral to and enhances the others. The results of basic science, translational, and clinical research inform the patient care we provide; research projects are influenced by the desire to understand the causes of disease and the hope of designing new—and effective—treatments and cures; and our students and trainees are exposed to innovative scientific thinking and clinical expertise, and in turn, stimulate our faculty to remain at the cutting edge of their fields. UT Southwestern is proud of its distinguished record of breakthrough scientific discoveries, outstanding medical education and training, and excellence in patient care. Founded in 1943 as a private medical school by a group of prominent Dallas citizens, it became part of the University of Texas System in 1949, and has evolved over the years to become one of the leading academic medical centers in the country.
UT Southwestern consists today of three degree-granting schools and a University Health Syst...em of hospitals and clinics. Its faculty is renowned for including six Nobel Laureates (one now Emeritus) and many members of the National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine), and UT Southwestern Medical Center is either nationally ranked or rated as high performing in nearly a dozen specialties by U.S. News & World Report. The initial connection with the Dallas community has been sustained, and their ongoing interest and generosity have been fundamental to UT Southwestern’s growth and success.
UT Southwestern contributes to the Dallas community and North Texas region in multiple ways. With about 12,000 employees and an operating budget of close to $2.06 billion, the Medical Center is a major source of jobs and economic activity for Dallas. UT Southwestern faculty receive over $400 million a year in external funding for research, and as an extension of our research mission, UT Southwestern promotes technology transfer activities that lead to the creation of companies aimed at translating research results into therapeutic agents.
In regard to clinical care, UT Southwestern contributes directly and indirectly to the quality of health care available to those who live in Dallas and North Texas. More than 60 percent of the physicians who practice in the area were trained at UT Southwestern, and in addition to the care provided by UT Southwestern faculty physicians to patients at our affiliated partners – Parkland Memorial Hospital, Children’s Medical Center, and the Dallas VA Medical Center – UT Southwestern University Hospitals (Zale Lipshy University Hospital and William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital) provide members of the Dallas community access to the most advanced care for the most serious medical problems. Clements University Hospital is a designated stroke center, and our Harold C. Simmons Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in North Texas.
The new Clements University Hospital opened in late 2014, and is designed to be an expression of our commitment to delivering high-quality, patient-centric care that reflects the integration of our academic and clinical missions.
UT Southwestern is committed to remaining at the forefront of scientific research; to educating and training physicians, scientists, and health care professionals for the changing landscapes of health care delivery and of biomedical and clinical research; and to providing excellent and innovative patient care. The leadership, faculty, staff, and students of UT Southwestern Medical Center are proud to be engaged in creating the future of medicine, today.
