Nuclear Medicine Radiology Faculty
Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging, Department of Radiology
University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine & Public Health
The Department of Radiology, with University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine & Public Health, is seeking a full time Nuclear Medicine Faculty member. This faculty will pursue an academic career in Molecular Imaging and Radiotheranostics at the rank of Assistant, Associate or full Professor on the CHS Track, with opportunities for leadership roles in our Radiology Department within the Nuclear Medicine Section and University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center.
About the Section of Nuclear Medicine:
The University of Wisconsin Section of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging provides image interpretation of a wide range of nuclear medicine procedures including positron emission tomography (PET) examinations. The section is composed of experts in multiple areas including general nuclear medicine and PET imaging, nuclear cardiology, PET/MR, prostate cancer imaging and therapy, and the imaging and treatment of patients with thyroid cancer. Therapies in patients with various forms of cancer are routinely performed with unsealed sources, such as radioactive iodine in patients with thyroid disease and 177-Lu-DOTATATE for patients with neuroendocrine tumors. The section is part of an expanding theranostics program using both clinically approved and investigational agents. This is a growing area with plan for a future theranostics center. The section has state-of-the-art imaging equipment including PET/CT, PET/MR, and SPECT/CT.
About the Department of Radiology:
The UW Department of Radiology consists of more than 120 faculty across 10 specialty sections, reading over 600,000 diagnostic scans per year. We train more than 50 residents and fellows per year and have extensive presence throughout the medical student curriculum. The Department of Radiology benefits from strong collaborations with the Department of Medical Physics, and together, the two share over 70,000 ft2 of facilities within the Wisconsin Institutes of Medical Research, including over $30 million of state-of-the-art equipment in PET, CT, MR, angiography, ultrasound, and PACS. With nearly $16 million in NIH funding, the UW Department of Radiology was ranked #11 by the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research in 2021, and a recent Elsevier report ranked the Department of Radiology at the University of Wisconsin as the 3rd in the world for its impact on the field of medical imaging. The Department is also home to a number of services dedicated to supporting our researchers, including the cutting-edge Radiopharmaceutical Production Facility and the Medical Imaging Research Services core, which provides extensive regulatory, grant administration, technical consultation, and image analysis services.
