Positions Available

New job opportunities become available each year as the Advanced Imaging Center continues to grow. New faculty positions open to fill niches in developing research areas and new technical support staff are needed to support expanding research efforts. A number of positions for graduate research assistants also become available every year.

Our faculty specialize in a wide variety of disciplines: engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics, and neuroscience.

Our postdoctoral program seeks highly motivated individuals with similar scientific backgrounds. Potential candidates will work with AIRC investigators to develop novel imaging technologies for biological and medical applications. Possible projects include the development of new MRI contrast agents for assessment of tissue physiology, performing experiments to increase understanding of metabolic pathways in humans and in animal models, noninvasive imaging of biophysical and biochemical parameters in living subjects, and establishing biomarkers that are useful for diagnosis and treatment of disease processes.

Advanced Imaging Research Center
UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX USA

Position Number: 86082
Position Title: Associate Professor
Department Name: Advanced Imaging Research Center
Hiring Manager: Dean Sherry, Ph.D., Director 

The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, the Advanced Imaging Research Center is seeking candidates for multiple faculty positions in neuroimaging research. The AIRC serves as a central resource for three UT 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).

Letters of interest may be submitted by email to dean.sherry@utsouthwestern.edu. Applicants should highlight research, teaching, and administrative experience. Include a brief statement describing current and future research directions. Also include a curriculum vitae plus the names, email addresses, and telephone numbers of four references. Initial review of applications will begin on October 1, 2017. Reviews and interviews will continue until the position is filled. For additional information, please contact Dr. A. Dean Sherry, Director of the Advanced Imaging Research Center. dean.sherry@utsouthwestern.edu.

UTSWMC is an affirmative-action, equal-opportunity employer committed to achieving excellence in patient care, teaching, and research.
