              Faculty Position in Biomedical Engineering

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Alabama at 
Birmingham has an opening for a tenure-track faculty member.  The 
opening is being filled as part of a Whitaker Foundation Special 
Opportunities Award for a training and research program in functional and 
structural imaging of the brain.  Candidates are particularly invited in cross-
disciplinary areas of neurosystems, biological neural networks, or other 
multidisciplinary areas that combine neurobiology and imaging.  The person 
selected for this position will be expected to form active research 
collaborations with other units in the Medical Affairs part of the UAB 
campus.  Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in engineering or a related 
field, and be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency in the U.S.  The 
search will be continued until the position is filled.

UAB is an autonomous campus within the University of Alabama system.  
UAB faculty currently are involved in over $140 million of externally 
funded grants and contracts.  A 4.1 Tesla clinical NMR facility for 
cardiovascular research, several other small-bore MR systems, a Philips 
Gyroscan system, and a team of research scientists and engineers working 
in various aspects of MR imaging and spectroscopy are housed only 200 
meters from the School of Engineering.  In addition, the brain imaging 
project will involve collaborations with members of the Neurobiology 
Center, as well as faculty members from the Departments of Neurology, 
Psychiatry, and Radiology.

To apply send a letter of application, a current curriculum vitae, and three 
letters of reference to Dr. Ernest Stokely, Department of Biomedical 
Engineering, BEC 256, University of Alabama at Birmingham,
