Job Summary

The Department of Pediatrics is seeking a clinical neuro-oncologist in the Division of Pediatric Neurology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The Division currently includes 21 faculty members with diverse clinical and scholarly interests.  We work very closely with Pediatric Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplantation, Pediatric Neurosurgery, Radiation Oncology, and Pediatric Genetics.

The Pediatric Oncology and Neuro-Oncology Program at Michigan Medicine is a tertiary referral center for the state of Michigan and nearby upper mid-western states.  It is home to the state’s only Pediatric Phase-I Program, and a state of the art Pediatric Precision Oncology Program.  Our Pediatric Neuro-Oncology program sees 40-50 newly diagnosed pediatric and young adult brain tumor patients annually.  There is a designated neuro-oncology nurse practitioner.   The Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program also has a neurofibromatosis and tuberous sclerosis clinic.

Our program is an active member institution of the Children’s Oncology Group Phase I consortium and the Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium.  We participate in many industry-sponsored clinical research trials, including those for patients with neurofibromatosis.  The Pediatric Neuro-Oncology program participates in a precision oncology program (PEDS-MIONCOSEQ) in collaboration with Michigan Center for Translational Pathology (MCTP).  In addition, we have several investigator-initiated early phase precision neuro-oncology trials.  Our program is home to the exciting Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Initiative and the Chad Carr Pediatric Brain Tumor Center.  Our strong basic research program focuses on DIPGs and other brain tumors.  

The Pediatric Neurology Division at Mott Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive diagnostic services and treatment for children with neurologic disorders. Clinics and inpatient care are provided at Mott Children’s Hospital as well as several satellite clinics. The Division is supported by five nurse practitioners, three ketogenic dieticians, an epilepsy care coordinator, nurses, and social workers.  Our research assistants support both multicenter and local clinical research studies.  Pain psychologists work closely with our headache patients. The University of Michigan provides outstanding environments for clinical care, for student and resident education, and for translational, health services, and basic research.


The University of Michigan, the Department of Pediatrics, and the Division of Pediatric Neurology are committed to having our staff and faculty represent a breadth of perspectives to better serve both our patients and the University community.  Therefore, Michigan Medicine seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce as a reflection of our commitment to serve the diverse people of Michigan and to maintain the excellence of the University.
