Lecturer / Assistant Professor - Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Requisition Title: Lecturer / Assistant Professor - Vascular and Interventional Radiology - 1803456
The Department of Medical Imaging of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre is recruiting a fellowship-trained vascular/interventional radiologist to join three similarly trained physicians as a clinician-teacher. The anticipated start date is September 1, 2018.
Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (SHSC) is a fully affiliated hospital of the University of Toronto. Key hospital programs include Trauma (Sunnybrook's trauma unit is Canada's first and largest of its type), Oncology (the Odette Cancer Centre is one of the country's largest), Cardiovascular, Aging & Veterans, Women & Babies, Orthopedic & Arthritic, and Neurosciences. The Vascular and Interventional Radiology (VIR) Division plays a major role in supporting these programs as well as Sunnybrook's busy Nephrology and Thromboembolism services.
VIR procedural practice at Sunnybrook is diverse, with a heavy emphasis on trauma and oncology. Trauma embolization includes targets in the pelvis and solid viscera. Oncology relies heavily on regional cancer therapy including various thermal ablative approaches (liver, kidney, lung), chemoembolization (including DEBIRI, DEBDOX and cTACE) and bland embolization. Additional areas include biliary and gastrointestinal interventions (feeding tubes, drainage and stenting), GU, thrombolysis (venous, pulmonary, arterial, dialysis access), women's/fertility including treatment of fibroids (UAE, HIFU), FTC, gonadal vein embolization (varicocele, pelvic congestion), vertebroplasty (including RFA assisted), osteoplasty and venous access. Peripheral vascular work is done but is not a focus of this division. Diagnostic work includes non neuro CTA, MRA and pre/post fibroid treatment MR.
Image-guided therapy is a strategic initiative at Sunnybrook and provides ample opportunity for research.
The department has three Angio suites, as follows: Philips Allura FD 20 equipped with Clarity, Flexview and XperCT/XperGuide, Philips Allura FD 20 equipped with XperCT/XperGuide and Philips Allura FD20/10 Biplane (soon to be upgraded to a Clarity system).
The qualified applicant should be eligible for an academic appointment at the University of Toronto, hold a Fellowship in Diagnostic Imaging from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, or equivalent, and have completed a fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology.
The successful candidate must have demonstrated excellence in research and/or education and a commitment to teaching students, residents and fellows. Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with the candidate's qualifications and experience. The base starting salary will be $300,000 per annum for a full-time equivalent (FTE, 5 days/week) with
opportunity for increased salary commensurate with experience and academic credentials.
Qualified candidates should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and three references to Dr. Sean Symons, Radiologist-in-Chief, Department of Medical Imaging, c/o Samah Khan, Academic Assistant, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Rm. MG-161, 2075 Bayview Avenue, Toronto, Ontario Canada M4N 3M5; e-mail: [email protected].
The closing date for applications is August 31, 2018 although position will remain open until filled.
