The applicant must have a Ph.D. or M.D. and a strong record of independent publications. While the specific area of research is open, the successful candidate is expected to have a research program that focuses on functional neuroimaging in human and/or preclinical models. Preference will be given to candidates demonstrating outstanding research expertise in one or more of the following areas: 1) fMRI imaging in humans that complements ongoing research at MUSC; 2) cutting-edge techniques for obtaining and analyzing multi-dimensional datasets in preclinical or clinical neuroimaging; 3) advancing systems-level models of neurocognition and neuropsychiatric disorders;and 4) contributing to multi-disciplinary translational neuroscience research. An endowed chair may be available for a qualified candidate.
Functional neuroimaging research at MUSC is supported by the Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI). MUSC maintains a full suite of clinical and small animal imaging equipment, including a research dedicated Siemens 3T scanner for human imaging, interleaved TMS/fMRI acquisition, a Bruker 7T/30 animal MRI system, a bioluminescence imager, a Siemens micro PET/CT scanner, an in vivo fluorescence imager as well as wet and dry labs, classrooms, and an auditorium. The Department of Neuroscience is national ranked as one of the top NIH funded neuroscience departments in the country, with particular research strengths in addiction, stroke, and aging research. In addition, the Neuroscience Institute bring together neuro-focused researchers from across campus and oversees graduate training for neuroscience students. MUSC provides several pre-and post-doctoral training grants and opportunities for research support through program project grants in: stroke recovery, neuromodulation for rehabilitation, alcohol abuse, and drug abuse. MUSC is a health sciences university that annually attracts over $200 million in research funding and is home to multiple center and training grants.
MUSC is located in the coastal city of Charleston.
