CAREER OPPORTUNITY

Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) | Department of Radiology | Department of Medicine

The Department of Radiology, jointly with the Department of Medicine, at The University of British Columbia (UBC) invite applications for a full-time (1.0 FTE) faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor, tenure track, in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology and precision medicine, with an emphasis on translational research. This position will be based at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health (DMCBH) and the UBC James Hogg Research Centre.

 

The Departments of Radiology and Medicine are internationally renowned for their clinical and basic science research. Both Departments have strongly established research programs in imaging and have identified AI as a priority area for growth. The DMCBH and the UBC James Hogg Research Centre are world-class clinical and research centres, and both have developing programs in AI in imaging and precision medicine, with a number of investigators involved in relevant studies, particularly in (but not limited to) diseases of the brain, heart, and lung. The DMCBH houses the Charles E. Fipke Integrated Neuroimaging Suite, which includes a new 3T MRI scanner, unique hybrid PET-MRI scanner, MRI-compatible non-invasive brain stimulation devices, and future plans for magnetoencephalography. In the UBC James Hogg Research Centre, in addition to ongoing work in AI on CT scans in heart and lung disease, a new research 3T MRI will be installed that will enable the deployment of novel AI techniques on unique sets of MRI and CT scans in patients with heart, lung, and blood vessel diseases. Both Centres place great importance in creating supportive and collaborative environments for interdisciplinary research, and many junior faculty members have flourished.

 

The incumbent will lead a translational research program at the interface of AI and medicine, particularly in the context of imaging, and participate in graduate and undergraduate teaching, including the development of new courses in applied AI for clinical applications. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to recruit students in several graduate programs, including Neuroscience, Bioinformatics, Experimental Medicine, and Biomedical Engineering. All of these programs support applied research in technology, including AI, and as a group can accommodate students from diverse backgrounds. The incumbent would also have access to medical undergraduates and residents working on research projects.

 

Applicants must hold a PhD in computer science, computer engineering, or related field, and have a strong technical background in machine learning. The successful candidate will have proficiency in the development and application of innovative AI techniques to medical images for clinical applications, as demonstrated by publications in top-tier journals and conferences, and production of tools with high potential for translation. The successful candidate will have demonstrated evidence of ability in teaching and will be expected to participate in the undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate teaching activities of the units.  The incumbent will also be expected to provide service to the University and the broader academic and professional community. In summary, the position is ideal for an interdisciplinary, highly collaborative researcher with experience in translational AI research, and an interest in the development of new educational programs.

 

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Competitive start-up infrastructure development funds will be provided. Applicants should submit a letter of application which addresses scholarly, professional and creative work and teaching interests, detailed curriculum vitae, statement of research activities (up to 4 pages), and names of three references to:
