Professorship of Radiology

Applications are invited for the Professorship of Radiology at the University of Cambridge, within the Department of Radiology.

The Department of Radiology is an internationally competitive department undertaking innovative research in medical imaging, with a varied portfolio of research themes covering a number of clinical areas. These are focused in oncological imaging and cardiovascular disease. There is also a neuroimaging programme supporting dementia research. There have been a number of novel MR developments, including hyperpolarized MRI and functional MRI techniques and novel techniques such as sodium imaging. Investigations into novel radiotracers and tracers to monitor novel drug regimes continue as well as a growing Artificial Intelligence (AI) programme in medical imaging.

This position, supported by Cambridgeshire University NHS Foundation Trust (CUHNHSFT) is a critical part of the future vision and development of the Department of Radiology and will enhance the collaborative relationships with a range of other hospitals and institutions.

It is hoped the appointee will broaden the Departmental research into new, innovative themes, across the oncology, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and neurological areas of study. The post will consist of 60% Research/teaching activity and 40% Clinical activity. The postholder would be expected to identify and develop areas of innovative research and actively seek funding opportunities through grant applications, either as principal applicant or co-applicant.

Prospective applicants should have a compelling and credible vision for their future research programme in the Department that will leverage existing expertise and infrastructure in the University and CUHNHSFT to achieve major impact. A higher degree (DPhil / PhD) and completion of specialist clinical training in Radiology is essential for this role, along with a strong track record of experience and expertise in imaging research, a growing international reputation and recognised research output of peer reviewed publications.
