Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), New York, NY, has opened a search for Chief, Colorectal Service, to succeed the late Dr. Douglas Wong, after his untimely death.

In a brochure provided by Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (click here for a .pdf file), MSKCC says candidates “should possess superb surgical and clinical skills, an established and focused research agenda, and a track record of outstanding leadership.” In addition to overseeing clinical and research activities of the group, the Colorectal Service Chief will be involved in faculty recruitment and retention, faculty academic career development, and fostering a multidisciplinary research environment, the brochure says.

“The candidate should have a national and international reputation as an innovator and leader in colorectal oncology, outstanding interpersonal skills,” the brochure says.

MSKCC has a full-time faculty of six colorectal surgeons, and its Colorectal Fellowship Training Program has two Fellows.

Interested applicants are asked to send curriculum vitae and bibliography to Dr. Peter Allan, Search Committee Chair, c/o Clara Irizarry, MPA, Administrative Manager, Office of Academic Recruitment, MH, MSKCC, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065, email:
