Job description and qualities of the Image Information and Acquisition Liaison (Medical Imaging Liaison)

The newly formed Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) is seeking a highly skilled medical imaging expert to manage the CTSC Imaging Consortium Consult Service in collaboration with Consortium members. The overall goal of the CTSC is to facilitate clinical and translational research throughout Harvard and at the associated Academic Healthcare Centers (Massachusetts General Hospital, Children's Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and others) by encouraging connections and helping trainees and faculty gain access to resources.

As the CTSC Medical Imaging Consortium Liaison, you will be broadly knowledgeable in a wide range of medical imaging research topics (all modalities, organ systems, and image analysis methods) and will become familiar with the resources available for imaging research in the Boston area. You will be the first point of contact for researchers who need help for medical imaging research projects from the CTSC, and you will guide them in determining whether existing CTSC grant programs or CTSC lab resources would be helpful to them. In the course of your daily activities, you will routinely make connections between researchers with complementary skills who are unaware of each others’ work. Your goal will be to encourage and support collaborations of all kinds in the area of clinical and translational medical imaging research. You will also provide hands-on assistance with the development of grant proposals, IRB proposals, and introductory medical image analysis training. This position will draw on many of the same organizational skills that would be required to be a successful manager of a large medical image acquisition and analysis service, and will require similar intellectual breadth to that required for an editor at a major biomedical imaging journal.

Required skills: PhD or equivalent in a medical imaging-related field. Broad interest in medical imaging including knowledge of MRI and CT imaging including the physics of the underlying signal, methods of acquisition, software for analysis, advanced knowledge of medical image processing. Exceptional communication skills, especially verbal. Demonstrated ability to juggle many competing priorities with grace and good humor. Strong sense of responsibility.
