Faculty job description

The Department of Surgery and the James P.

Candidates must be BE/BC in General Surgery and have completed a Breast Surgery Fellowship program. Candidates would join the faculty at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, commensurate with the candidate’s experience.

The main practice site for this position is the free-standing Pluta breast center; this is our primary location for breast cancer care for all of URMC/Wilmot. It is expected that the candidate will also practice at a regional affiliated site; all URMC sites provide multi-disciplinary care with medical and radiation oncology like the central location. Also, at both locations, the faculty member will be supported by an Advanced Practice Provider and nursing.

Desirable candidates will possess a strong commitment to patient care, resident and medical student education, and research. It is expected that candidates will have an interest in developing a broad practice and a clinical or basic research program in Breast Surgery. The Breast Surgery/Surgical Oncology faculty have a unique opportunity to take advantage of both the Department of Surgery, which has outstanding research infrastructure for both basic/translation and outcomes research, and Wilmot Cancer Institute which provides collaboration and regular statistical support. There is also opportunity for leadership for the appropriate candidate.

The U of R is located in Rochester, New York and is surrounded by world class culture, affordable housing and nationally ranked public schools. The City of Rochester is a mecca for the arts: home to a philharmonic orchestra, wonderful museums including the Strong National Museum of Play, internationally recognized dance companies as well as The Eastman School of Music. The Rochester International Jazz Festival is one of the top 10 Jazz festivals in the nation. The region boasts access to great watersports both on Lake Ontario as well as the Finger Lakes. The Finger Lakes region is also home to many internationally known wineries. Rochester has a rich history and was the last step on the underground railroad and the place Frederick Douglas called home. It is also the location of the Susan B. Anthony House making Rochester the epicenter of the woman’s suffrage movement.

The University of Rochester and the Department of Surgery have a strong commitment to principles of diversity and inclusion, and in that spirit, encourage applications from groups underrepresented in higher education, EOE Minorities/Females/Protected Veterans/Disabled.
