The Department of Neurology at the University of California, Davis is recruiting a Translational Imaging Scientist at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. This is a full time faculty position in the tenure track.
The faculty member will join a dynamic research environment within the Department of Neurology. We seek candidates with a focus on translational neuroimaging investigations (PET and MRI) to study brain aging, cerebrovascular disease and dementing disorders. The candidate of choice will join an internationally recognized research environment that includes the Alzheimer’s Disease Center, the Imaging of Dementia and Aging (IDeA) laboratory, the Imaging Research Center and the UC Davis Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Facilities.
The applicant is expected to focus primarily on human imaging and is expected to have comprehensive biological knowledge of brain aging and dementia with sufficient experience utilizing neuroimaging tools to study these biological processes. The applicant will be expected to develop a vigorous and independent research program and to participate in our undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral education and training programs. Collaboration with other departmental programs involved in neuroimaging is also encouraged. The applicant will also be expected to provide University and public service.
This recruitment is conducted at the Assistant/Associate Professor rank. The resulting hire will be at the Assistant/Associate rank, regardless of the proposed appointee's qualifications.
To receive full consideration, applications must be received by July 31, 2018. However, the position will be open until filled through June 30, 2019.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: PhD with a fellowship in neuroimaging
Internal Number: JPF02201
About UC Davis School of Medicine
The Department of Neurology at the University of California, Davis conducts basic and clinical research on the nervous system and provides clinical care for people with neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, epilepsy, movement disorders like Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, tremor, dystonia, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular conditions, headache, and sleep disorders.
The department’s faculty includes leading neuroscientists, who work to expand our knowledge of nervous system function, as well as neurologists and psychologists who provide diagnosis and treatment for adults and children. The department offers cutting-edge diagnostic approaches, including advanced neuroimaging technologies, and access to trials of new medications and other therapeutic modalities.
The department's educational programs include medical student training, an active residency program that enrolls 15 residents, and several post-doctoral fellowships in clinical neurophysiology, clinical neuropsychology, epilepsy, movement disorders, and neurodegeneration and aging.
