The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in pediatric oncologic imaging, the desire to build (or build upon) an academic career, and possess effective interpersonal skills, a collaborative nature and clinical acumen.

The Department of Diagnostic Imaging is responsible for providing the patients of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with state-of-the-art diagnostic assessments and image-guided procedures and therapies. We have a robust history of clinical and research innovation focused on finding cures and saving children with catastrophic diseases. As the only pediatric radiology program committed primarily to childhood cancer in the United States, our department plays a fundamental role in setting the standards for imaging care and improving outcomes at St. Jude and beyond while continuously exploring new opportunities to enhance diagnostic and therapeutic imaging approaches for acute care patients and survivors.

Our vision in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging is to establish St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as the global leader in the development and use of imaging science to perfect the process of diagnosis, guide and optimize treatment, and improve the quality of life of children with catastrophic diseases. Our faculty serves as principal investigators and coinvestigators on protocols with a focus on innovative clinical diagnostic imaging and clinical research in pediatric brain tumors, solid tumors, sickle cell disease and cancer therapy-related secondary pathologies in an inspiring academic environment. Our efforts are supported by excellent clinical and research imaging equipment, a Molecular Imaging Core facility with a cyclotron for production of novel radionuclides, state-of-the-art imaging software and an advanced post-processing facility staffed with a talented group of Ph.D. imaging scientists, software engineers and physicists. Pre-clinical support is provided by a well-equipped, on-site animal imaging facility.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital provides patient and family-centered care, and in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging we strive to meet the needs of our patients and families by providing compassionate care and relentlessly improving the patient experience. We hold ourselves accountable for performing at the highest levels of patient care and research discovery. We foster an atmosphere of mutual trust characterized by open communication, transparency and respect for diverse opinions. We recognize and build upon our complementary strengths by working together for the common good of those we serve — the patients and families of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Our chair, Zoltán Patay, M.D. Ph.D., will be with us at the ASPNR 1st Annual Meeting in New Orleans, and is eager to interview interested candidates.
