Over the past 12 months the Utah BMT program performed 140 adult transplants, including 62 allografts, and 27 pediatric transplants. Current staffing is 5 Faculty, 2 hospitalists and 5 midlevel providers. The newly built adult BMT unit is housed at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital and the pediatric unit at Utah Primary Children’s Hospital; A dedicated Cell Therapy Facility provides stem cell processing and experimental GMP capacity.

They should have proven administrative and leadership qualities and a history of successful program building.
 
The successful candidate will be tasked to expand the BMT program, particularly the allogeneic transplant activity, through innovation, clinical and scientific excellence, and community outreach. She/he will collaborate closely with other programs in the Division, provide training and mentorship to junior Faculty and fellows, and elevate the BMT program to national prominence. Significant resources will be made available to accomplish this goal, including the ability to recruit Faculty, laboratory space, start-up package and a competitive salary.
