Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware, is searching for a Chief of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to expand its clinical, research and teaching missions. The ideal candidate should be an academically-oriented, biologically-based child psychiatrist with an interest/expertise in the genetics of psychiatric disorders and/or neuroimaging.
We have recently installed a state-of-the-art GE Signa PET/3TMR system and radiochemistry laboratory with capability of synthesizing various radiotracers to image neuroreceptors and molecular pathways highly relevant to studying psychiatric disorders. The PET/MR program is under the leadership of Drs. Harry and Diane Chugani, who recently joined the faculty. Strong collaborations between Psychiatry, Psychology and Neurology are expected. Academic appointments will be at our partner institution Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University.
The candidate will be expected to recruit faculty to expand the division clinically and academically, as well as to expand its residency training program.
We believe this to be a unique opportunity for the qualified individual to flourish in an exciting environment of growth and expansion with advanced technologies.
