Job Opportunity: Assistant Project Scientist in Computational Solutions in the Roncali Lab

The Department of Biomedical Engineering in the College of Engineering at the University of California, Davis invites applications from qualified candidates for one or more Assistant Project Scientist positions in the laboratory of Professor Emilie Roncali.

This position will focus on developing simulation tools for nuclear imaging, with regular and significant contributions to an opensource software for simulation which the laboratory is a primary developing member (GATE).

The Project Scientist makes significant and creative contributions to research in their academic discipline. The appointee possesses the subject matter, expertise and the creative energy necessary to function at a high level of competence. The appointee will participate in activities to increase, improve, or upgrade competency. Appointees with Project (e.g., Scientist) titles may engage in University and public service. They do not have teaching responsibilities. Although the Project Scientist is expected to work independently under the general guidance of an academic member with an independent research program (i.e., Professor, Professional Researcher, Specialist in Cooperative Extension, etc), they are not required to develop an independent research program or reputation. They will carry out research or creative programs with supervision by an individual in an academic title that carries with it automatic Principal Investigator status. The Project Scientist does not usually serve as a Principal Investigator but may do so by exception.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biomedical imaging, the physical sciences, or related field, and have experience in programming, computational simulations, data visualization. 

Review position and apply

Deadline for full consideration is October 26, 2023, although applications will be accepted until the position is filled
