The University of Colorado School of Medicine invites nominations and applications for the position of Chair of the Department of Radiology.
The Department of Radiology has 155 faculty on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. Departmental research strengths are in clinically based research/scholarship and basic science/grant-funded research. Most of the clinical faculty are on the academic track and are required to produce scholarship to qualify for promotion. Our basic science/grant-funded research program consists of seven PhDs with research focused on cancer theranostics, addiction, cardiac dynamic imaging, small animal imaging, and bone mineralization.
The Department has an international reputation for research excellence, state-of-the art resources, a highly interactive and collaborative culture, and outstanding training programs.
