JOB DESCRIPTIONAPPLY Full/Part Time/PRN: Full-Time
The AIRC serves as a central resource for three University of Texas system Universities to develop and apply advanced imaging methods and to interact collaboratively with multiple independent clinical research groups studying topics including normal aging, Alzheimer s disease, schizophrenia, drug addiction and epilepsy. In addition to three research-dedicated 3T and one 7T MR scanner for human experiments, extensive resources in basic physics, chemistry, analytical NMR and small-animal MRI (4.7T, 7T, and 9.4T) are in place. A new research cyclotron and related small animal and human PET imaging facilities are also available.
Successful candidates are expected to carry out their own research using advanced neuroimaging methods as well as collaborative projects with clinical populations. Expertise in functional MRI, multiband imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, high field MRI, perfusion, diffusion, chemical shift imaging and spectroscopy, traumatic brain injury, diseases of the aging brain, and image processing are areas of interest. Prior experience applying these methods to patient populations is preferred. Neuroimaging faculty are expected to contribute effectively in a highly collaborative environment and develop an independent research program supported by external funding. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent, and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research with a track record of publications plus demonstrated ability to obtain independent funding. Candidates for either the research or tenure tracks will be considered at any level of academic appointment (instructor, assistant, associate or full professor).
