The Department of Radiology in the School of Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle is seeking applications for one full-time faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor without tenure, commensurate with experience, to join ten existing faculty members in the Interventional Radiology (IR) section with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2019.

The University of Washington Interventional Radiology section covers five sites (the University of Washington Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, Veteran's Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and Northwest Hospital) and has an affiliate agreement for fellowship training with Seattle Children's Hospital.

The clinical practice is outstanding and includes inpatient admitting services and a full day of outpatient clinic for each IR attending physician. We have an active IR fellowship program with four adult IR fellows. An IR/DR residency program has just been accredited.
