Job Posting Title
Biomedical Science and Engineering Center Director

Start Date
05/14/2009

Reference Code
NC50119690

Purpose
The Computational Sciences and Engineering Division seeks to hire a recognized Senior Scientist to become the Director of a recently established Biomedical Science and Engineering Center. Expertise must cut across at least two of the key mission areas of BSEC: Biomedical Informatics, Biomedical Modeling and Simulation, and Biomedical Measurement Science and Imaging Technologies. The mission of the Center is to create a central focal point at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for cross-cutting, interdisciplinary collaborations in biomedical informatics and engineering, instrumentation and technology development, covering a broad range of expertise ranging from knowledge discovery to translational research to licensing. A key goal is to promote multi-dimensional, interdepartmental research interactions that can more effectively address national problems in the biomedical informatics and engineering sciences. BSEC was established in August, 2008, and has already demonstrated strength throughout the internal and external biomedical communities. BSEC hosted its first annual conference in March, 2009 under the leadership of both the Acting and Deputy Directors, both of whom will remain in place to work with the new BSEC director.

Major Duties/Responsibilities
The Director must be able to work effectively with an established group of biomedical researchers from across ORNL, representing seven divisions and three directorates to provide guidance and strategic leadership both within the Center and across the Laboratory and its sponsors and partners. A willingness to support interdisciplinary, cross-cutting research is essential. The Director must be able to write and direct major proposals, create key collaboration partnerships outside of ORNL, and provide significant high level leadership to the BSEC community. The Director must be able to foster creativity, organize seminars and programs of interest to the Center and to the community at large, support future conference and publication efforts, and provide overall leadership across all the areas of interest.
The Director will be expected to work with the existing and future members of BSEC on efforts for current and potential sponsors, to grow the entire program through identification and development of opportunities, extensive external collaborations, and the generation of proposals. Candidates will be capable of integrating into the research team to enhance the Laboratory's growing research program in computational medicine, systems medicine, and computationally intensive data analytics across multiple modalities. Applicants should be experienced in interpreting, reporting, and presenting analysis results to national and international audiences. Outstanding skills in communication and teamwork are required for an environment that will involve problem solving by working with and through other people and interaction with sponsors.

Qualifications Required
The Director must have a significant, proven track record of collaborative research projects and peer-reviewed publications in respected journals and a demonstrated ability to acquire funding from key sponsors, including, but not limited to, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense and all related agencies, Department of Homeland Security, and from the public and private sectors. The Director must also have a strong background that covers achievements and demonstrates collaborations crossing some or all of the following areas:

- Biomedical Informatics (i.e., Knowledge discovery, fusion, data mining, visualization, data analytics, image processing and analysis, content-based image retrieval, geographic information systems, and decision support systems for research and clinical use);
- Biomedical Modeling and Simulation (i.e., Predictive modeling, 3-D visualizations, organ models, and mathematical modeling tools); and
- Biomedical Measurement Sciences Technologies (i.e., Diagnostic instrumentation, imaging instrumentation and measurement, prosthetics, sensor and data fusion, telemedicine instrumentation and systems, and biosensors/biomarkers)

The successful candidate must have Ph.D. or commensurate experience in Biomedical Informatics or Biomedical Engineering and significant experience (10 or more years) in a Senior Research leadership role or as a project or program manager on interdisciplinary teams, with publications to support these efforts; proven track record in obtaining funding from Federal agencies, as well as from private sector; and demonstrated ability to interact at all levels with program offices and other agencies to develop and maintain inter-disciplinary program funding for basic and applied biomedical support. Priority consideration will be given to candidates with extensive experience in a research environment connected with an academic medical center or major hospital complex.

It is required of this position the ability to obtain and maintain a clearance from the Department of Energy. As such, this position is a Workplace Substance Abuse program (WSAP) testing designed position which requires passing a pre-placement drug test and participation in an ongoing random drug testing program in which employees are subject to being randomly selected for testing. The occupant of this position will also be subject to an ongoing requirement to report to ORNL any drug-related arrest or conviction or receipt of a positive drug test result.


This position will remain open for a minimum of 5 days after which it will close when a qualified candidate is identified and/or hired.
We accept Word(.doc, .docx), Excel (.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint(.pdf), Rich Text Format (rtf), WordPerfect (.wpd), HTML (.htm, .hmtl) and text files (.txt) text files (.txt) up tp 1MB in size. Resumes from third party vendors will not be accepted; these resumes will be deleted and the candidates submitted will not be considered for employment.
If you have trouble applying for a position, please email ORNLRecruiting@ornl.gov.
UT--Battelle is recognized by our employees and the community as an inclusive environment where diversity is valued and individuals and teams are inspired to contribute fully to the organization's success. ORNL is an equal opportunity employer.
