                        Tenure Track Faculty Position
                          --------------------------
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 sought 
in neurosystems modelling, biological neural networks,computational
neurobiology, or other multidisciplinary areas that combine neurobiology
and imaging.  More senior candidates and candidates with established
research programs are of particular interest, in order that the UAB 
program can be quickly established.  The person selected for this 
position will be expected to form active research collaborations with 
other units in the medical center part of the UAB campus.  Candidates 
should have a Ph.D. degree in an appropriate field, and must 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 the opportunity for collaborations with members of 
the Neurobiology Research Center, a new Cognitive Science Graduate 
Program, 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
