Faculty Position in High Field Neuro MRI

Faculty Position in High Field Neuro MRI
The Radiological Sciences Laboratory in the Department of Radiology at Stanford University is searching for a full-time Assistant or Associate Professor in the Non-tenure Line (Research). The major criterion for appointment for faculty in the Non-tenure Line (Research) is evidence of high-level performance as a researcher for whose special knowledge a programmatic need exists.
The broad research program to be served by this position is the high field MRI program at Stanford as it intersects with the neuroscience program at Stanford. We are specifically interested in candidates whose skill set could range from a technology development focus to an application focus, but in all cases, the candidate will be expected to combine the areas of high field MRI and neuroscience. It is expected that the successful candidate will possess PhD degree or combined PhD/MD. The rough estimate for the proposed distribution of efforts is approximately 80% research and 20% teaching.
The Richard M. Lucas Imaging Center at Stanford houses a 7T whole body MRI system which forms the centerpiece of the high field program at Stanford. This system will be upgraded to a next generation GE MR950 platform with fully independent 8-channel parallel transmit technology, in 2011. This advanced technology will co-exist with latest generation research-dedicated GE 3T and 1.5T scanners within the same Lucas center, as well as a 7T GE MR901 animal MRI housed within the small animal imaging facility at Stanford. Stanford has a strong collaborative research relationship with the manufacturer of all of these systems (GE).
Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and applications from women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university's research, teaching and clinical missions.
