Job Description St. Jude Children's Research Hospital


St Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a private, not-for-profit institute that is internationally recognized for its commitment to providing state of the art clinical services, while performing innovative scientific and patient-directed research. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. 


We seek a highly motivated, faculty-level (clinician scientist track) at the Associate or Full Member level with training in hematology-oncology, a proven track of leadership capacity, and a strong interest in clinical/translational research and clinical care activities. The preferred candidate should also have experience in mentorship and fellowship training within the academic setting, and in incorporating quality and/or process improvement into daily inpatient/outpatient clinical practice.


The Department of Oncology is comprised of multiple Divisions inclusive of Leukemia-Lymphoma, Neuro-oncology, Solid Tumor, Palliative Care & Quality of Life, Cancer Predisposition, Cancer Survivorship, and Molecular Oncology. The Department is also closely aligned with the St. Jude NCI-funded Comprehensive Cancer Center with each Oncology Division providing the opportunity for translation of basic and translation research.


This position will report directly to the Chair of the Department of Oncology, lead divisional clinical research, and oversee Leukemia-Lymphoma patient care services in collaboration with the Director of Oncology Clinical Medicine and the Chair.  


The Department of Oncology provides a highly collaborative and interactive environment where faculty members have ample opportunities to participate in clinical, educational, and translational research initiatives.  As an integral member of the leadership team of the department, the Division Director of Leukemia-Lymphoma ensures alignment of divisional goals with institutional and departmental strategic goals and initiatives, oversees divisional faculty development, and promotes outstanding multidisciplinary care delivery and research activities.  This position will also play an essential role in implementing strategies incorporating clinical education into daily practice to ensure the satisfactory learning experience of Hem-Onc fellows, residents, and medical school students in Leukemia-Lymphoma service. 


This is a remarkable opportunity to be part of a positive workplace where all employees, regardless of their role, share the same commitment to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer and other catastrophic illnesses. St. Jude is consistently ranked on Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Places to Work For” and listed on Glassdoor 100 Best Places to Work for the last 6 years for companies with 1,000 or more employees. 


This position is based in Memphis, TN with relocation assistance available. The facilities and salaries are competitive, and a generous benefit package is included. Memphis is a family-friendly metropolitan area that is recognized for its world-class music, food, and hospitality. Mild winters and beautiful green spaces are part of the reasons why Forbes recently named Memphis the 4th happiest city in which to work. 


It is essential that candidates have an MD, MD/PhD or DO degree and be Board certified or Board-eligible in pediatric hematology-oncology.  Successful candidates will have expertise in the areas of hematology and oncology, as the faculty member will be involved in clinical care.
