Full-time faculty position in Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging is sought at the McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).
The incumbent will join a collaborative and exciting team in Diagnostic Medical Physics in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center. Primarily a clinical position, the position focuses on management of computed tomography, fluoroscopy, radiography, mammography, nuclear medicine, MRI and ultrasound equipment, as well as on radiation safety, including radionuclides.
Appointees will be expected to allocate some time to radiology and medical physics resident education and clinical research. Candidates will be eligible for a Non-Tenure clinical faculty position.
Applicants must have a minimum of a Doctoral degree in medical physics or a related science. Candidates must be board certified or eligible for board certification in Diagnostic Medical Physics and/or Nuclear Medicine and eligible for licensure in medical physics in the State of Texas.
Priority will be given to those with experience in CT protocol optimization and eligibility for licensure in nuclear medicine. Applicants must be legally authorized to work in the USA.
Appointees will join a group of four medical physicists, two medical physics residents, two safety specialists, and an administrative program manager. The team serves two large metropolitan teaching hospitals, multiple outpatient clinics, a medical school with over 50 residents in radiology, and a school of dentistry. Clinical and academic responsibilities are shared among the physicists. Candidates must be willing to travel periodically to facilities within the Houston metropolitan area.
About The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston
McGovern Medical School is the seventh largest medical school in the United States. Located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, the school was established by the Texas Legislature in 1969 to address the shortages of physicians and the then-untapped resources for medical education in Houston. The first class of 19 entered the Medical School 1970, and by 1979, class sizes of 200, legislatively supported through state formula funding, were the norm. Today, McGovern Medical School accepts classes of 240 per year to meet the growing demand of physicians throughout the state of Texas. (See McGovern Medical School timeline) With nearly 1,000 medical students and a similar number of residents and fellows, McGovern Medical School is one of the largest and most diverse medical schools in the country. Students have access to the latest technology and are taught with an emphasis on humanities, ethics, patient quality, and safety. McGovern Medical School is affiliated with several inpatient hospitals and outpatient facilities, providing a broad range of clinical services. As such, the students are exposed to a large and diverse population, with an appropriate balance of common and rare d...isorders. McGovern Medical School students have access to a rich collaborative environment that includes not only the UTHealth schools of dentistry, nursing, bioinformatics, biomedical sciences, and public health, but also all of the institutions of the vibrant Texas Medical Center.
