The Department of Imaging at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI), in affiliation with Harvard Medical School, is seeking a Radiologist with expertise in molecular cancer imaging to lead DFCI's translational research program. A track record in translational molecular imaging is required, specifically in the field of novel imaging approaches to diagnose cancer early and track response to novel therapies in humans. DFCI is also particularly interested in expanding its existing Theranostics program.
The appointment rank at Harvard Medical School will be commensurate with experience, and dependent on qualifications. A generous package of research support will be provided for successful candidates to allow his/her research to thrive in a nurturing academic and clinical environment. DFCI offers outstanding, state-of-the-art facilities to conduct this research program, including, among others, the Molecular Cancer Imaging Facility (MCIF), housing a fully staffed preclinical cyclotron facility, and the Lurie Cancer Imaging Facility (LCIF), housing small animal imaging PET/CT, SPECT/CT, high-field small animal imaging MRI and optical (bioluminescence) and hybrid optical-ultrasound (multispectral optoacoustic imaging, MSOT) as well as cutting edge Raman spectroscopy imaging systems. In addition, the MCIF cyclotron facility is currently in the process of being upgraded to a GMP-grade facility, which will then offer both preclinical and immediate clinical translational radiotracer syntheses. The program will also be supported by the GMP grade radiochemistry facilities and cyclotron at the affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) to support clinical trials. The candidate will also have full access to other relevant BWH research facilities, including the Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operating (AMIGO) suite and the clinical translational test-bed for research in BWH's National Center for Image-Guided Therapy (NCIGT).
Candidates must have an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree, be board certified in Diagnostic Radiology, and ideally also in Nuclear Medicine. A proven track record of high-quality publications and successful grant applications is expected. Excellent communication skills, as well as team-building and collaborative abilities are required.
DFCI Radiologists are part of the BWH Physician's Organization, which offers competitive salaries and an outstanding personal and professional benefits package.
All application materials, CV and a letter describing qualifications, as well as three professional references that we will contact directly, should be submitted via e-mail to the chair of the search committee, Marcelo F. Di Carli, MD (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Chair of the DFCI Department of Imaging, Moritz F. Kircher, MD, PhD (email@example.com), and his executive assistant Erin M. Foley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
