SickKids is the largest quaternary care pediatric hospital in Canada and is a teaching hospital for the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto – a leading public institution.

The Neuro-Oncology program, established in 2000, is a leading clinical academic program dedicated to advanced multi-disciplinary care for patients with benign and malignant pediatric brain tumours. Clinical and translational research activities in the section span a broad spectrum ranging from cognitive and visual rehabilitation for brain tumor patients, brain tumour pathogenesis to development and implementation of novel precision medicine, immunologic and cellular therapies through clinical trials.  The section also leads several twinning programs to help advance clinical care of brain tumour patients globally and has a highly competitive endowed clinical fellowship in pediatric Neuro-Oncology.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic interprofessional care team to provide expert inpatient and ambulatory care for pediatric brain tumor patients and will share in out-of-hours clinical coverage for oncology patients.

The successful candidate will be supported in making a substantial contribution to the research and teaching missions of the Division. The neuro-oncology program is a shared practice. As such, the candidate will be heavily involved in the clinical care of neuro-oncology patients and expected to have 50% of the time devoted to clinical service.

All candidates must be able to function proficiently in English, hold an MD, MBBS or the equivalent thereto and be certified or eligible for certification by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada or have comparable qualifications.  Candidates must hold or be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. The successful candidate must be eligible for an academic appointment at the University of Toronto.

The successful candidate will be eligible for a benefit package which includes medical, dental, life insurance, long term disability insurance, group insurance, pension plan, vision care, academic allowance, and a relocation package.
