The Duke Radiology Division of Interventional Radiology seeks candidates for a clinical faculty position as Medical Instructor, Assistant, or Associate Professor. The position is based at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC with duties at the Durham VA Medical Center. Candidates are expected to have a commitment to excellence in academic interventional radiology.

Candidates must be board-eligible or board-certified, have completed a Diagnostic Radiology residency and an interventional radiology fellowship, and have demonstrated excellence in research, education, and clinical care. A VIR CAQ is expected for those who are eligible.

The ideal candidate will have the flexibility, interest, and ability to perform a broad range of interventions within a busy and growing clinical practice. The range of procedures performed is diverse, including all interventional oncology procedures (percutaneous thermal ablation, embolotherapies, and irreversible electroporation), hepatobiliary interventions, portal interventions, transplant interventions, peripheral arterial disease, venous interventions, women's interventions, complex gastrointestinal interventions, hemodialysis interventions, and a multitude of others. The demand for oncologic interventions is growing, so interest and experience in these procedures are highly valued.

Duke has a busy transplant center, with whom we partner extensively to optimize patient outcomes after organ transplantations. Similarly strong partnerships are maintained with hepatobiliary surgery, urology, oncology, trauma surgery (Level 1 center), vascular surgery, and nearly every other clinical service. Involvement in clinic, inpatient care, and multidisciplinary conferences are integral. Faculty who contribute towards procedural growth and innovation are highly valued. Diagnostic biopsies are performed by our subspecialty colleagues in Radiology.

Interested candidates will have strong academic potential and research interests. The Division is involved in clinical, translational, and basic science research with plans for further growth and development. The Duke Interventional Radiology Translational Research Laboratory provides resources for the pursuit of basic and translational research. Duke Radiology and the IR Division maintain excellence in trainee education. The fellowship program, with 5-6 fellows per year, is in transition to an IR residency. There is an expectation to teach medical students, residents, and fellows.

Duke University is located in the greater Triangle area of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, which offers wide-ranging options in residential communities, social activities, and nightlife. The three major academic institutions within the Triangle, along with Research Triangle Park, a globally renown mecca for technology companies, has made the area culturally diverse, economically prosperous, and nationally recognized as one of the fastest growing areas in the nation.  To learn more about the Duke and Greater Triangle communities, visit: http://community.duke.edu/
