No attending in house evening or night shifts. Weekend shifts can be staffed from home on hospital-provided workstations.
Opportunities for protected time for scholarly activity are offered. A 3.0 Tesla dedicated research scanner operated by the University of Vermont MRI Center for Biomedical Imaging is housed in the Radiology Department and staffed by full time by experienced research technologists as well as an MR physicist. We also have active research programs in health services and in global health, with collaboration and mentorship opportunities. There are possible leadership positions open within the department, for the appropriately qualified candidate.
This is a Clinical Scholar Pathway full-time position in the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor Rank.
