The Department of Radiology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University Medical Center invites applications for a clinical faculty position as a pediatric radiologist. Salary and academic title will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.  The successful candidate will perform USG, CT and non-neuro MRI as well as pediatric plain film radiography.  Responsibilities will include patient care, active participation in resident and fellowship education, and participation in clinical and/or basic research.

Position requires M.D. or D.O.   Requirements include board certification in diagnostic radiology and one year of pediatric radiology fellowship. Candidate must be able to obtain a New York State medical license. Narcotics license desirable.

Please visit our online application site at http://academicjobs.columbia.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=58634 for further information about this position and to submit your application. Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer. The School is especially interested in qualified candidates whose record of achievement will contribute to the diversity goals of the institution. Excellent salary and benefits.

The Department of Radiology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University Medical Center invites suitable candidates to apply to work on new research projects in collaboration with Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) to begin January 2014, for a period of up to 2 years, renewable annually.

There will be at least two research projects involving collaborative imaging biomarker research between the Department and BMS.  The thrust of one research project will be preclinical and/or clinical imaging, involving methods to analyze/improve image data sets.  The thrust of the other research project will be clinical imaging, and will focus on imaging in drug development.   Both projects will utilize ongoing development of Oncology and Immuno-Oncology and Immunology therapeutics and Exploratory Biology & Genomics at BMS.

Candidates will divide their time as appropriate between the BMS research facility in Lawrenceville New Jersey and in Radiology research at CUMC.   Initial appointment is for one year. Renewal for a second year is contingent on satisfactory performance and funding.

Positions require a Ph.D. or MD degree.  Expertise/training/experience in CT or MRI is essential.  Positions are ideal for candidates intending to continue in a career that involves imaging biomarker development in Oncology, Immuno-Oncology, Immunology, and Exploratory Biology and Genomics.  Successful accomplishment of both projects may require candidates to have strong expertise in image processing theories and algorithms and excellent computer skills, while an understanding of clinical trials – from Phase 0 to Phase 3 – as well as an appreciation of imaging biomarker development would similarly be important for successful execution.  Candidates will report to the Vice-Chair, Research, Department of Radiology and BMS imaging; they are expected to be able to work well in an academic–industry joint team and to communicate the results of their research orally and in writing.

Please visit our online application site at http://academicjobs.columbia.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=58545 for further information about this position and to submit your application.  Please include a cover letter outlining your research and clinical interests, CV, and a list of references.  Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer.  The School is especially interested in qualified candidates whose record of achievement will contribute to the diversity goals of the institution.

Greetings potential applicants -

The Keystone Symposia Fellows Program seeks early career scientists from both underrepresented minority and well-represented backgrounds, to interact with our distinguished Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) during the scientific meeting planning process.  It provides an opportunity for a “behind the scenes” look at an activity performed by established scientists that will invaluably inform the applicant’s future career and allows sharing with established scientists applicant views on the challenges faced by early career scientists and underrepresented scientists in particular.

Now in its fifth year, the program has demonstrated that those completing it benefit through high-quality, focused mentoring by recognized world-class scientists on our SAB, potential  invitations to lecture at prestigious laboratories, potential requests to engage in collaborative research with established scientists, the opportunity to present a small piece of their research to the SAB, learning how small scientific meetings are planned, and engaging in in-depth discussions which address the challenges faced by underrepresented scientists.

To all individuals who might be eligible and interested – especially those from underrepresented minority backgrounds, postdoctoral fellows (at least 2 years into the program), Assistant Professors (no more than 4 years into their appointment) or industry equivalent scientists – This Program is a research anchored, diversity focused program.

Applicants must be …

  1. U.S. citizens or permanent residents
  2. Actively engaged in full-time laboratory research

They do not have to be members of designated visible ethnic minority populations, but they do have to document substantial in-depth experiences in face to face interaction with persons from minority populations in the U.S., which include -

  1. Native American/Alaska Native,
  2. Hispanic/Latino,
  3. African American/Black, and
  4. Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders,

And and ensure that these experiences are verifiable. Further, the applicants are required to document an understanding of the specific and sometimes nuanced issues and challenges often faced by underrepresented minority (URM) scientists. By face-to-face interactions, we mean experience or activity other than teaching, which is in many cases largely a one-way communication.  Applicants need to have a serious understanding of the issues in order to carry in-depth discussions in small group settings on challenges to enhancing participation in the life sciences by underrepresented scientists. Verifiable documentation of the qualifying experience is required as part of the application process, and applicants will be chosen in part, based on their demonstrated ability to inform on the issues facing underrepresented scientists.

The Keystone Symposia Fellows Program will begin accepting applications for the 2014 Class on June 1, 2013. The application and eligibility requirements may be found at Keystone Symposia Fellows Program, as well as photos and bios of the most recent class of Fellows.  The application to the Fellows Program must be returned via U.S. postal mail and postmarked no later than 12:00PM (MST) on September 1, 2013. Applicants are urged to begin the application process early in the spring-summer to avoid problems with obtaining necessary documents by the September deadline.

The Research Program on Children and Global Adversity is seeking a post-doctoral Diversity Fellow applicant whose interests and career goals for training align with the activities of our recently-funded NICHD R01 in Sierra Leone to study the inter-generational effects of war on mental health and child development.  Interested potential applicants with a background in quantitative research skills (field based survey data collection, early childhood assessment, psychometric and multivariate analyses of child and family mental health outcomes) as well as qualitative research skills are encouraged to be in touch with Dr. Theresa Betancourt (Theresa_Betancourt@harvard.edu<mailto:Theresa_Betancourt@harvard.edu>).  The RPCGA and the potential fellow will then work together to co-construct a proposal for funding to NICHD comprising a multi-year training and mentored research plan aligned with their career goals and project activities. Applicants must come from an under-represented minority group and be US citizens or green card holders. Willingness to spend significant time in Sierra Leone for field work is desired as is prior field based research in Africa.
