Position description

The Department of Radiology at the University of California, Davis is recruiting a full-time, fellowship-trained Musculoskeletal Radiologist at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor (commensurate with credentials) in the Health Sciences Clinical Professor (HSCP) or Clinician Educator (Clin X) series. Expectations of a ClinX series is to engage in teaching, research, service and clinical work, while expectations of faculty in the HSCP series are primarily clinical and include teaching, service and scholarly and/or creative activities. A qualified candidate may also be nominated for the administrative role as Division Chief of Musculoskeletal Imaging. Expertise in all aspects of MSK imaging is essential.

Candidates must possess an M.D. degree or equivalent, have a valid CA Medical License (or be eligible for licensure in the State of California), and be board certified in Diagnostic Radiology (or be eligible for the initial certification examination of the American Board of Radiology). The applicant should have a strong interest in working collaboratively in a diverse environment.

Expertise in all aspects of musculoskeletal imaging is strongly suggested, including MR, CT, US, and image-guided procedures. The expected candidate will work primarily within musculoskeletal imaging. Knowledge in and willingness to interpret exams in other areas of radiology will be highly valued. This position involves participation in patient care, service, education, and research, although less emphasis is placed on research for those in the HSCP series. Particular emphasis will be placed on an individual's interest in trainee education, breadth of knowledge, and flexibility.

A qualified candidate may also be nominated for the administrative role as the Division Chief of Musculoskeletal Imaging. To be given consideration for this administrative role, demonstrated experience in clinical operations and strong interest in mentorship, research and teaching is required. The successful candidate will be a leader in the field with a reputation in academic leadership and clinical excellence. The applicant will report directly to the Chair of Radiology and will be a member of the departmental leadership team. The division chief will participate in departmental strategic planning and operations. Within the musculoskeletal division, the Chief will oversee the day-to-day clinical operations of the division, mentor faculty, promote research, coordinate educational programs and work collaboratively with other faculty and division chiefs.
