Interventional Radiology (IR) Section Chief

The Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) at Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, MO, is seeking an accomplished academic interventional radiologist to lead the Interventional Radiology (IR) section.  The IR section is currently composed of 17 faculty, 6 physician assistants, 6 nurse coordinators and 3 office staff. In addition, there are more than 15 IR trainees distributed amongst the three ACGME accredited IR training pathways.  The MIR diagnostic radiology residency is the largest and among the best in the country.  The Medical School and Department are typically ranked in the top 5 in the US in NIH funding.

The IR section provides a full range of Interventional Radiology services at a series of BJC Healthcare facilities.  The central hub is the Washington University Medical Center which includes the nationally-ranked Barnes Jewish and St. Louis Children’s Hospitals.  Satellite sites include Barnes Jewish West County Hospital and Missouri Baptist Medical Center.  BJC Healthcare and Washington University continue to invest heavily in updating these facilities as evidenced by the new construction or renovation of 11 new IR angio suites in the last 6 years.  Planning for a new central hub that will include state of the art hybrid CT/angio, procedural CT and multiple angio suites is underway and scheduled for completion in 2027.

The section enjoys exceptional interdisciplinary relationships with other departments, for clinical, teaching, and research endeavors.  Washington University and MIR offer an excellent environment for clinical and basic science research.   The Clinical Research Lab provides coordinator support for clinical research.  5 MRs, 2 PET/CT, and a PET/MR are dedicated to human research scanning in addition to our large clinical imaging infrastructure. PET studies are supported by a world-class cyclotron facility with GMP for novel radiopharmaceutical production. Animal research facilities within the department provide temporary housing, surgical preparation and pre-clinical imaging (Fluoroscopy, MR, PET/CT, PET/MR).  Laboratory space for pre-clinical research is also available.  Faculty have access to statistical support, cluster computing and a supercomputing facility for image and data analysis. 

Applicants should be ABR certified with CAQ certification in Interventional Radiology or equivalent. The desired candidate should be an outstanding leader, clinician, and educator.  Experience leading teams during change is essential.  A firm commitment to research, as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications, successful mentorship and experience with research grants is highly desirable. Academic rank will be dependent on qualifications, but is expected to be at the level of Associate or Full Professor for the appropriate candidate. 


Washington University provides faculty with generous benefits that include health, life and disability coverage, retirement and tuition assistance for faculty and dependents.  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, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, veteran status, disability or genetic information.
