Regional Cancer Care


Click to listen to this page using ReadPlease We are pleased to invite applications for a Clinician Scientist in Radiation Oncology at Regional Cancer Care, the integrated cancer program of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. Located at the tip of Lake Superior in Northwestern Ontario, we are responsible for the delivery of cancer services to approximately 300,000 people from the Manitoba border to Hearst. Interested candidates will work in a multidisciplinary setting with a team that has established a reputation for excellence in patient care, clinical research, and education.


We are the comprehensive cancer program within the recently constructed Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre with both outpatient and inpatient focuses. In addition to a newly introduced PET/CT-Simulator, our Radiation Oncology program offers CT Simulation, High Dose Rate Brachytherapy, and external beam therapy, including IMRT, using two ONCOR™ Linear Accelerators. Focal™ is used to provide virtual simulation capabilities and treatment planning is performed using XiO™. We have multidisciplinary clinics for Urology, Head and Neck, Breast, Skin, and Thoracic rounds for Radiation Oncologists and a tradition in participation in Clinical Trials. Additionally, we actively interact with our thirteen regional sites across Northwestern Ontario either in person or through Telehealth. Affiliation with Lakehead University and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine provides superb opportunity for clinical and applied research, which has been significantly enhanced with the recent creation of the Thunder Bay Regional Research Institute (TBRRI). There are three core research themes being pursued by the TBRRI: Image guided interventions, advanced detection devices, and biomarker exploration. Bench-top research will predominantly be performed on a second campus, but an emphasis on translating that research to the clinical environment means that there is also dedicated space at the TBRHSC. The relationship with the TBRRI is ideal for supporting the research interests of a clinician scientist.


Applicants must be eligible for licensure in Ontario, and must have a Fellowship in Radiation Oncology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario or equivalent. While Canadian immigration regulations accord preference to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada, all qualified applicants are encouraged to apply by sending a copy of their curriculum vitae and three references in confidence.
