Nuclear Medicine Radiologist

The Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Department of Diagnostic Radiology is seeking a faculty member and Chief for our Nuclear Medicine Section. The ideal candidate will be fellowship trained in Nuclear Medicine and will be appointed at the level of Assistant, Associate or full Professor, depending upon experience and qualifications.

As the only academic medical center in the state of Oregon, OHSU provides a full spectrum of care to a large and diverse population. With 576 licensed beds, and several different locations for outpatient clinics, OHSU serves nearly 300,000 adult and pediatric patients each year, totaling nearly 1 million patient visits annually. On the main campus at Marquam Hill, just south of downtown Portland, there are 36 patient care buildings. Additional locations include the South Waterfront (a 20 acre site on the banks of the Willamette River linked to Marquam Hill by an aerial tram), the West Campus in Beaverton (12 miles west of Marquam Hill and home of the Oregon National Primate Center, Vaccine Gene Therapy Institute, and Data Center West), and a variety of community clinics. Planned expansion of the South Waterfront campus in the coming years includes a multistory outpatient cancer center and a 50 bed short stay hospital. The Center for Radiochemistry Research, directed by Ken Krohn PhD and Jeanne Link PhD, is charged with developing our molecular imaging program, which is expected to rapidly grow with the upcoming installation of a cyclotron and PET/MRI scanner on the Marquam Hill campus.

Clinical responsibilities will include overseeing the daily activities of the section, which encompasses a broad case load generated by five nuclear cameras, all of which have SPECT/CT capability, and two PET/CT scanners. Accordingly, the department has state of the art imaging equipment and sees patients with a wide mix of complexity and pathology. Current academic activities within the section are centered on the promotion of excellence in the evidence-based application, performance, and interpretation of Nuclear Medicine. The campus offers excellent opportunities for multidisciplinary research, with a history of innovative and collaborative studies. OHSU is home to numerous specialized research centers and institutes, including one of the first Clinical and Translational Sciences Award-funded programs in the country (the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute), the Advanced Imaging Research Center (dedicated to improving medical imaging), the Knight Cancer Institute, the Dotter Interventional Institute, the Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine (dedicated to elucidating the structural and mechanical properties of cells and tissues), and the Oregon National Primate Research Center. The Knight Cancer Institute is the only NCI-designated Cancer Center in Oregon. Educational responsibilities will include teaching at all levels commensurate with a large academic center, including medical student, resident, fellow and postgraduate training. The candidate must be board certified in Nuclear Medicine (or equivalent) and must be eligible to practice medicine in the state of Oregon. OHSU is committed to diversity, and applications from under-represented minorities and women are also encouraged.
