The department of Radiology at the University of California Davis, School of Medicine is recruiting for an Assistant Adjunct Professor position.
The job requires fundamental understanding of medical imaging, with an excellent understanding in breast imaging, mammography, tomosynthesis, and computed tomography. The candidate must be highly proficient at computer coding, preferably Matlab. The candidate must have demonstrated skills with Monte Carlo computation using MCNPX, specifically for the purpose of computing radiation dose to the breast and surrounding tissues. Computer literacy is required, including the ability to run programs pertinent to image reconstruction, image analysis, and data backup. Knowledge and understanding of radiation and the ability to pass associated radiation safety tasks is required. Solid communication skills are necessary, and the ability to collaborate with undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff is required.
Basic qualifications Knowledge of medical imaging procedures, ability to learn acquisition protocols for medical imaging equipment such as mammography systems are breast computed tomography systems. The ability to write algorithms to perform image processing, image reconstruction, and other data analysis is a necessity.
Required qualifications A recent PhD in biomedical engineering, medical physics, or related programs is required. One year of postdoctoral research working in a medical imaging laboratory with specialization in computed tomography is required. Familiarity with academic research involving patient imaging is required. The ability to write scientific papers, submit them for your review, and respond and resubmit is required. Candidate will be expected to provide lectures on medical imaging using x-rays and CT to the radiology residents, to radiation oncology residents, and to biomedical engineering graduate students.
Completed applications will be reviewed on April 1, 2019 and will continue to be reviewed on a regular basis, however the position will remain open until filled through June 30 2019. Qualified applicants should apply online at https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/apply/JPF02697 by uploading a cover letter, curriculum vitae with bibliography, statement of contributions to diversity and the names and contact info of at least three professional references.
