Faculty Position in Early Psychosis and Schizophrenia Research
The Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neurosciences (DPBN) at Wayne State University is inviting applications at the junior or mid-career faculty level for a physician-scientist position in early psychosis and schizophrenia. The psychiatry faculty position includes either a tenured or tenure-track appointment, with a highly competitive package.
In this role, the successful applicant will be expected to establish and maintain an outpatient clinic with clinical operation for care and treatment of individuals with schizophrenia and other related psychotic disorders, as well as individuals at risk for developing schizophrenia or psychosis-related disorders.
This will involve working with various Community Mental Health, hospitals, Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Authority and other potential referring organizations in the Metro Detroit and tri-county area to establish a referral network system for patient recruitments.
Responsibilities will also include conducting exemplary interdisciplinary research in psychosis with the expectation of securing extramural research funding. Additional responsibilities will include educating/mentoring trainees at all levels (fellows and residents, and graduate and medical students), and collaborating with other clinical faculty.
The recruited faculty member will have a primary appointment in DPBN; however, a campus-wide interdisciplinary focus is expected, allowing for the development of collaborative research with (potential) colleagues in Psychology, Pharmacology, Pediatrics, Neurology and the integrative Biosciences (iBio) center at Wayne State University. Within DPBN strong areas of research focus include substance-use, addiction, trauma and related stress disorders, psychosis, pediatric disorders and the application of innovative Magnetic Resonance technologies.
In addition to iBio, other campus-wide resources at WSU include an advanced MR research facilities (research dedicate Siemens Verio 3T system for human research and a recently upgraded Bruker BioSpec 7T animal system), and a research dedicated PET system (GE Discovery STE PET/CT system), all of which make Wayne State University an attractive
opportunity for a prosperous research career.
The ideal candidate is expected to have research expertise/experience in early identification of individuals at increased risk of developing psychosis, and treatment of individuals with early psychosis and schizophrenia.
A focus on the neurobiology of these conditions is also desirable and experience in human electrophysiology and/or Magnetic Resonance related modalities will be highly desirable.
Priority will be given to applicants with current external funding and with a U.S. medical degree (M.D. or M.D./Ph.D.). with fellowship credentialing in psychiatry, and licensure (or license-eligible) to practice in the State of Michigan.
