Position Description:    

The University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School is recruiting a Radiochemist/ Chemist/Molecular Imaging/Biochemist for a faculty position in the Department of Radiology . The candidate should have a strong research background in small animal translational imaging and be able to assume the management and operation of a micro-SPECT/PET/CT Core and an Optical Imaging Core, both of which comprise the University’s Small Animal Imaging Core Facility. The successful candidate will interact with university and outside researchers to assist in the design and implementation of imaging studies.

Applicant will have published in the field of biomedical molecular imaging, radiochemistry or similar areas. Applicants should possess excellent communication skills and have grant writing experience. The candidate is encouraged to seek outside funding to maintain an independent research laboratory.

This individual will participate in on-going research projects related to Core activities and should have experience in radiopharmaceutical development with a strong background in radiochemistry and chelation chemistry for radiolabeling biomarkers. A background with both SPECT and PET isotopes and associated labeling chemistries would be highly advantageous. Prior experience with operation of a micro-SPECT or PET system is desired but not required.

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF RADIOLOGY RESEARCH The Department of Radiology has a diverse group of approximately 100 clinical and basic-science faculty members dedicated to research and/or education at the level of instructor or above to build greater understanding of the use of imaging in the diagnosis of disease. Our faculty collaborate across UMass Chan basic science and clinical departments, as well as institutions around the world, to apply imaging biomarkers of disease progression, often making clinical trials of novel interventions practical. The UMass Chan Department of Radiology is, with the coupling of the Division of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering and the Division of Cell Biology and Imaging, performing multiscale, multimodal imaging research from the cellular level at the nano-scale to organ systems. UMass Chan Department of Radiology also includes our Division of Translational Anatomy, which creates a unique environment for our learners, particularly medical students, who now can combine gross-anatomical dissection with cross-sectional imaging.

In the past fiscal year, the Department has supported 25 grants and contracts, 19 of which were NIH funded, and 26 clinical trials. The Department operates 6 core facilities: Advanced MR Imaging (AMRIC), Electron Microscopy Facility, Image Processing and Analysis Core (iPAC), New England Center for Stroke Research (NECStR), Optical Animal Imaging Facility, and the Radiolabeling & Small Animal Translational Imaging Core (RLASTIC).
