Due to departmental and sectional growth, the Department of Radiological Sciences, University of California Irvine, is seeking a qualified candidate in the non-tenure track Health Sciences Clinical Professor academic series (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level). Expertise in all aspects of cardiothoracic imaging is essential and experience with vascular imaging is extremely desirable.
