Position Description

The University of Chicago's Department of Neurology is searching for a full-time neuro-oncologist faculty at any rank. Academic rank and compensation, which includes a generous package of fringe benefits, are dependent upon qualifications. 

The faculty member will join a growing neurosciences service line, which includes the opportunity to practice at University of Chicago’s expanding clinical locations both in and outside of our main campus in Hyde Park. It is anticipated that this position will spend time both in Hyde Park and at other ambulatory care sites, including Orland Park in the south suburbs of Chicago and River East in downtown Chicago. Maintaining and overseeing an active outpatient clinic as well as teaching and supervision of medical students, residents and fellows is also expected.

We especially welcome candidates with an interest and background in neuro-oncology research. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team in brain tumor therapeutics comprised of established clinicians in neurology, neurosurgery, radiation oncology, and medical oncology and collaborate with existing institutional expertise in oncology drug development, clinical pharmacology, immunology, and pharmacogenomics. The University is also home to the Ludwig Center for Metastasis Research, the Neuroscience Institute, and the Grossman Center for Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior.

In addition, a physician in this position may also participate in other research activity such as clinical trials. The candidate will have experience in neuro-oncology clinical trials and leverage the available infrastructure and resources in the Department of Neurology and the  The University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center to successfully launch and conduct innovative clinical trials in neuro-oncology.
