The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s Office of the Chancellor has initiated a formal search process for the regular appointment of director for the University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center.

“This is a critical position for not only the cancer center, but the State of Hawaiʻi. We are looking for a strong and respected leader to help the various components of the cancer center to unite around a shared vision and mission,” said Chancellor Robert Bley-Vroman. “We look forward to a successful search for someone to lead the cancer center to reduce the burden of cancer through research, education, clinical trials and patient care with an emphasis on the unique ethnic, cultural and environmental characteristics of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific.”

Chairing the 10-member Search Advisory Committee is Margaret McFall-Ngai, director of the Pacific Biosciences Research Center. The Search Advisory Committee will recommend finalists to Chancellor Bley-Vroman, who in turn will recommend a selectee to UH President David Lassner. The committee includes chairs, faculty, staff and students from the UH Cancer Center, as well as representatives of the Kualiʻi Council and community.

For the job announcement, position description, Search Advisory Committee members and an Opportunities and Challenges Profile, please see the website at www.manoa.hawaii.edu/executivesearch/uhcc.

Review of applications will begin on Wednesday, December 30, 2015, and will continue until the position is filled.

  1. Let us hope that this search goes better than the last one where Carbone was put in charge and ran the place into the ground. I am staggered that this incompetent man is still working at the cancer center. The problem is, most the people who put him there are still in the UH admin. These administrators put him in charge even though he did not meet the minimum requirements they set out for the position, he was not even the first choice of the search committee. UH needs to get its act together and stop wasting or taxes.

    Have a look at these links that demonstrate the incompetence of the entire UH administration, the link to the flawed cancer center business model makes for sad reading. The people who came up with that flawed model are all highly paid and make decisions on how to run a university. You just have to look at the state of the Manoa campus to see how incompetent the UH administrators really are!

  2. A friend tried to leave the below reply yesterday, for some reason you have decided not to upload it. I should not have to remind you of your obligations to free speech, especially after recent events at Hilo. Perhaps my friend did not upload it correctly? Or more likely UH did not like the contents, which show the University in its true colors, that is no reason not to post it though especially since it follows your guidelines to the letter.

  3. Wow, thanks for those links I was not aware of those issues. As a voter and tax payer I am disgusted with events at uh. I will no longer be donating to the uh foundation until things are sorted out and education is prioritized over the egos of hopeless administrators. How can people so incompetent keep their jobs? Hopefully the plan to save the Athletics dept was better thought through than the business model for the cancer center, not sure it was though……
