Computational Imaging and Informatics Faculty Positions

Position Description

The Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) at the Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) in St Louis invites applications from outstanding Ph.D., D.Sc. and/or

M.D. candidates for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at all levels to lead the development of new programs in Computational Imaging and Informatics.

The selected candidates will be members of the Computational Imaging Laboratories (CIL), which is a multi-investigator research group with over 40 students, postdoctoral fellows, staff, and clinical fellows that provides a collaborative environment for diverse computational research initiatives. CIL investigators perform ground-breaking work in medical image processing and analysis, imaging informatics, artificial intelligence, and a range of disease-focused applications. Current areas of research include Alzheimer Disease, mental health, stroke, and oncology. The CIL also supports large scale initiatives across the Medical School, including the Human Connectome Project and Alzheimer Disease Research Center, through its high performance computing and informatics services. The CIL provides a physical and intellectual environment that promotes collaborative, innovative and interdisciplinary neuroimaging research and supports the career development of students and junior faculty.

MIR is an international leader in future-driven education and groundbreaking research. MIR is deeply committed to distinction in teaching and learning and excellence in research, being consistently ranked one of the top Diagnostic Radiology Departments for NIH funding. It has a highly productive, extensive and collaborative research program based on modern scientific disciplines. Faculty and students of MIR have access to world-class research support facilities including Center for High Performance Computing, Shared Data Storage, Central Neuroimaging Data Archive, Neuroimaging Informatics Analysis Center, Center for Clinical Imaging Research, Cyclotron Facility, MRI Facility and Pre-Clinical Imaging Facility. Pursuing highly interdisciplinary research, MIR offers unparalleled opportunities for collaborative research within the Department, with other WUSM departments, the Siteman Cancer Center, the Charles F. And Joanne Knight Alzheimer Disease Center, the Institute for Informatics, the McDonnell Genome Institute, the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, and the School of Engineering & Applied Science on the Danforth Campus of Washington University in St. Louis.
