|Faculty – Assistant/Associate/Professor|
University of Illinois at Chicago
| The Department of Psychiatry is seeking a well-trained Clinical Neuroscientist with an interest in the neuroscience of affect. The Department brings together scientists and clinicians from different disciplines and departments who study neural and behavioral processes and how these relate to the etiology and treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. The clinician scientist will have an MD or MD/PhD, eligible or Board Certified in Psychiatry, and eligible or licensed in Illinois. The hire will provide clinical care and be eligible to recruit research participants from the Mood and Anxiety Program or Women’s Mental Health Program. Faculty will be expected to oversee an active competitively-funded research program in the general area of affective neuroscience. The successful candidate will have a PhD, and/or MD or equivalent degree in a relevant area of biomedical sciences, and be an established investigator with a track record of active funding. The department has a very strong basic and clinical research program in brain disorders and clinical translational research, particularly in geriatric depression, depression in women, and post-traumatic stress disorder; however, the department lacks a clinical neuroscientist with expertise in the most common affective disorder, major depression.
Research expectations: The candidate will pursue clinical translational research in affective neuroscience. Research expertise in the affective and cognitive consequences of major depression is preferred. Clinical research methods in major depression can include clinical trials, psychopharmacological challenge studies, functional neuroimaging, psychophysiological methods (e.g., EEG), and genetics. UIC has both a 3T and 9.4T human magnetic resonance scanner. Existing strengths in mood disorders include geriatric depression, bipolar disorder in children and hormone-related depression in women.
The successful candidate will have M.D./Ph.D., and eligible or licensed in Illinois. Training, teaching, and familiarity with academic medical operations are necessary. There are opportunities for research and community outreach with generous vacation and retirement benefits. For full consideration, applicants must apply online at http://jobs.uic.edu and reference Job ID #36245 and submit a CV and cover letter by November 15, 2013.
