The Division of Intramural Research (DIR) of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) is seeking to recruit an outstanding Staff Clinician to perform cardiac MRI and cutting-edge research in heart failure within the Laboratory of Clinical Physiology in the Cardiovascular Branch. The clinical research program will be in collaboration with MedStar Washington Hospital Center where a newly installed Siemens Sola 1.5T Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanner will be equipped with research sequences from NHLBI and hardware for catheterization guided by Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Patients with heart failure will be recruited and undergo MR scanning at Medstar Washington Hospital Center and therefore a major part of the staff clinician´s time will be at this site.
The Cardiovascular Branch of the NHLBI conducts research on diseases that affect the heart, blood, blood vessels and lungs with specific projects aimed to answer clinically relevant issues using methods ranging from a molecular level up to and including clinical projects in diagnostics, therapeutics and interventions; and emphasize creation of an environment where scientists and physician scientists can work together on disease specific issues using the most appropriate approaches available in the spectrum between the bench and the bedside. There are strong interactions with a wide range of independent research groups, and the position offers exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration within and outside of the NIH.
The existing faculty in the NHLBI DIR is an outstanding group of internationally recognized biomedical researchers covering a wide range of basic and clinical research topics (please see https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/research/intramural) complemented by the other research institutes within the DIR (please see http://www.nih.gov/science/#campus).
The successful candidate should be a board-eligible cardiologist with advanced training in cardiac imaging including MRI and have a strong track record of achievement, expertise and experience in the field of cardiac imaging and/or heart failure. Salary is commensurate with research experience and accomplishments.
