The Department of Radiology at the University of California, Davis is looking to hire 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) series.

Expertise in all aspects of MSK imaging is strongly suggested, including MR, CT, US, and image-guided procedures. The expected candidate will work primarily within musculoskeletal imaging while also serving within other imaging sections in the department of radiology. As such, individuals with experience or proficiency in the interpretation of exams not only within musculoskeletal imaging but within other clinical divisions are desired.
This position involves participation in patient care, education, and research, although the latter is not a requirement in the HSCP series. Particular emphasis will be placed on an individual's interest in trainee education and breadth of knowledge.
Qualified 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 fostering collegiality and working collaboratively in a diverse environment.

All section members are actively engaged in the missions of clinical service and teaching.
