Musculoskeletal Section Chief/Radiologist
The Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, MO, is seeking an accomplished academic radiologist to join our faculty and lead our Musculoskeletal (MSK) Section. The MSK section is currently composed of 7 faculty, five fellows, and is extensively involved in medical student and radiologist education. The MIR radiology residency is the largest in the country and the University and Department are typically in the top 5 in the US in NIH funding. A T-32 grant supports research residents. MIR provides services to the highly-rated Barnes Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, which have just completed a 1 billion dollar investment in new patient towers overlooking Forest Park, recently rated the best city park in America.
The MSK section interprets all diagnostic imaging for a large group of referring university-based and subspecialized private orthopedists, rheumatologists, and other practitioners, encompassing a wide variety of traumatic, infectious, inflammatory, congenital, neoplastic, and sports-related conditions. In addition, a busy interventional service performs diagnostic and therapeutic pain interventions in the spine and joints, and has built a cutting-edge practice in adult and childhood percutaneous tumor biopsy and ablation. The section enjoys exceptional interdisciplinary relationships with other departments, for clinical, teaching, and research endeavors.
Washington University and MIR offer excellent facilities for clinical and basic science research with PET/MRI scanning for both pre-clinical and human applications, as well as advanced MRI technologies and a world-class PET facility.
Applicants should be ABR certified or ABR eligible with either an M.D. or M.D., Ph.D. and fellowship training in musculoskeletal radiology. The desired candidate should be an outstanding clinician, educator and leader. A firm commitment to research as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications and successful mentorship is essential. Demonstrated success in securing grant/contract support is highly-desirable. Academic rank will be dependent upon qualifications.
Washington University provides faculty with generous benefits that include health, life and disability coverage, retirement and tuition assistance. In addition to these competitive benefits, the university offers a variety of time off and quality-of-life programs.
We are a diverse group and wholly encourage diversity to reflect the rich community in which we live and serve. We are committed to promoting an environment that is inclusive and welcoming to all individuals. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, protected veteran status, disability or genetic information.
