The Department of Radiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is seeking a full-time MRI physicist to join the Physics and Engineering Division. Academic rank and tenure status offered will depend on qualifications and experience of the successful applicant.
The candidate must have a Ph.D. in physics or related sciences and be certified by The ABR, ABMP, or CCMP. The candidate must have at least three years of active experience with MRI; familiarity with advanced applications such as MRS, fMRI, DCE, or perfusion studies will be viewed favorably. Expertise with MRI pulse sequence development or history of work in R&D of a major MRI manufacturer will be valued.
This is a clinical position, but an interest in research activities is expected. Demonstrable capabilities for obtaining research funding are not required but considered beneficial. Sharing in teaching duties with other medical physics faculty is expected as well as mentoring Medical Physics residents. In addition to routine clinical duties, shared with another medical physics faculty member within the Radiology Department, the successful candidate is expected to participate in medical system-wide collaborative clinical and research activities.
Applicants should submit a CV, three references, and a letter outlining professional and teaching experience as well as research and scholarly interests.
