Open Rank Assistant/Associate/Full Professor

University of Illinois at Chicago

Chicago, IL
The Department of Psychiatry is seeking an established Clinical Neuroscientist with an interest in the human neuroscience of affect, stress, and/or depression as part of a Provost-supported cluster hire in neuroscience. The Department brings together scientists and clinicians from different disciplines and departments who study neural and behavioral processes and how these relate to the etiology and treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. Faculty will be expected to transfer and maintain an active competitively-funded research program in the general area of affective neuroscience, with considerable support provided from the provost and department. The successful candidate will have a PhD, and/or MD or equivalent degree in a relevant area of biomedical sciences, and be an established investigator with a track record of active funding. The department has a very strong basic and clinical research program in brain disorders and clinical translational research, with particularly strong focus in neuroscience of geriatric depression, depression in women, mood disorders and anxiety, pediatric depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder as sources of collaboration and synergy. The department seeks to strengthen and expand these core areas by adding a mid-advanced level scientist-clinician in allied areas such as affective neuroscience, stress systems, perinatal health, and/or treatment.

Research expectations: The candidate will pursue clinical translational research broadly within affective neuroscience, with preference for the affective and cognitive consequences of mood disorders or conditions increasing risk for or frequently comorbid with mood disorders. Clinical research methods in mood disorders can include clinical trials, psychopharmacological challenge studies, functional neuroimaging, stress/HPA systems, perinatal mental health, psychophysiological methods (e.g., EEG), metabolomics, and/or genetics. UIC has both a 3T and 9.4T human magnetic resonance scanner and 3T coils equipped with simultaneous fMRI/EEG.

The clinician scientist will have an MD or MD/PhD, eligible or Board Certified in Psychiatry/related discipline, and eligible or licensed in Illinois. The hire will be expected to include provision of clinical care, ideally including clinical care within their research program. The successful candidate will have M.D./Ph.D., and be eligible or licensed in Illinois. Training, teaching, and familiarity with academic medical operations are necessary. There are opportunities for research and community outreach. Inquiries and requests for more information may be directed to pmaki@psych.uic.edu or slangenecker@psych.uic.edu. For full consideration, applicants must apply online at http://jobs.uic.edu and reference Job ID #36245 and submit a CV and cover letter by January 15, 2014. Women and minority applicants are encouraged to apply. UIC is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
