The Department of Radiology & Medical Imaging at the University of Virginia (UVA) within the School of Medicine (SOM) seeks applications for a tenure-track research faculty position at an Assistant or Associate Professor rank. We are seeking applicants whose research focuses on the design, production, and utilization of precision molecular imaging/PET-based diagnostic and theranostic agents. The faculty member will have a unique opportunity to work with a diverse, multi-disciplinary clinical and research community and investigate questions and applications related to oncologic, neurologic, cardiovascular and infectious diseases as well as other domains. The candidate would also serve as a faculty advisor to the Radiochemistry Core, a well-equipped cGMP (certified Good Manufacturing Practice operating under USP ) Radiopharmaceutical laboratory capable of synthesizing novel PET drugs for both preclinical and human trials, and radiotheranostic agents for preclinical use. The Radiochemistry Core and cGMP lab have significantly expanded molecular imaging, radiotheranostic and immuno-oncology research capabilities and allowed multiple research laboratories at UVA to secure federal funding. Additionally, the Radiochemistry Core, a cyclotron and a vivarium are co-located adjacent to extensive research-dedicated imaging technology to support preclinical and human subjects’ studies. 

Expectations associated with this faculty position include:

  • Developing an independent and well-funded research program;  
  • Generating innovative and meaningful scientific data to present at academic conferences and publish in high impact journals;
  • Building relationships and working collaboratively with other researchers and clinician scientists within the Department and Institution as well as other organizations;
  • Establishing a national and international reputation;
  • Helping to educate and train the next generation of research scientists in precision molecular imaging/PET-based diagnostic and theranostic approaches; and
  • Inspiring a culture of respect and inclusivity.
