Faculty Position in Biomedical Engineering
The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Alabama at
Birmingham has an opening for a tenure-track faculty member. The
opening is being filled as part of a Whitaker Foundation Special
Opportunities Award for a training and research program in functional and
structural imaging of the brain. Candidates are particularly invited in cross-
disciplinary areas of neurosystems, biological neural networks, or other
multidisciplinary areas that combine neurobiology and imaging. The person
selected for this position will be expected to form active research
collaborations with other units in the Medical Affairs part of the UAB
campus. Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in engineering or a related
field, and be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency in the U.S. The
search will be continued until the position is filled.
UAB is an autonomous campus within the University of Alabama system.
UAB faculty currently are involved in over $140 million of externally
funded grants and contracts. A 4.1 Tesla clinical NMR facility for
cardiovascular research, several other small-bore MR systems, a Philips
Gyroscan system, and a team of research scientists and engineers working
in various aspects of MR imaging and spectroscopy are housed only 200
meters from the School of Engineering. In addition, the brain imaging
project will involve collaborations with members of the Neurobiology
Center, as well as faculty members from the Departments of Neurology,
Psychiatry, and Radiology.
