Director, Magnetoencephalography Laboratory
The Department of Neurology at The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School (DMS) is recruiting a physician scientist or scientist to lead the Magnetoencephalography (MEG) Laboratory program for the UT Health Austin (UTHA) Pediatric Neuroscience Program at Dell Children’s Medical Center. We seek an innovative clinical and academic leader who will inspire and mentor the program’s other team members.
The University of Texas at Austin, Dell Medical School (DMS), the first new medical school to be built at a tier one US research university in nearly 50 years, welcomed its first class in 2016. We are committed to reshaping academic medicine and revolutionizing how people get and stay healthy by educating leaders, developing new models of care, and advancing innovation from health products to health care delivery. DMS is also home to the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences, established by a $50 million gift from the Mulva Family Foundation; it is part of the collaborative scientific community of departments, centers, and institutes on the adjacent University of Texas campus.
With 248 beds, Dell Children’s Medical Center (DCMC) is the only freestanding pediatric hospital in the region. The MEG Laboratory will be a major component of the Dell Children’s Neuroscience Center. Research support is available via DMS, and research space is available at the University’s adjacent Dell Pediatric Research Institute or at DMS. Residency programs in adult neurology, child neurology and adult PM&R already exist.
Austin is the 11th most populous city in the US, and for the last two years it has ranked # 1 in the US News & World Report’s “Best US Places to Live” survey. Austin is a vibrant, socially conscious university city that is known for its live music scene, cultural diversity, and international festivals such as South by Southwest (SXSW). Nearby lakes and rivers as well as the adjacent beautiful Texas Hill Country, provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities.
The Director will be responsible for coordinating, supervising, and directing all activities of the MEG Laboratory. The Director will provide advanced scientific and technical expertise to contribute to the formulation, implementation, and analysis of techniques, procedures, and results both in clinical and research applications.
Candidates must hold an MD or PhD degree, in a neuroscience related field, including neurology, neurophysiology, neuropsychology, neurosurgery, radiology, psychology, or a related field. Required additional training includes a minimum of one year fellowship in a neuroscience field and an additional one year fellowship in a clinical magnetoencephalography setting. Candidates must be eligible for faculty appointment at UT Austin.
