Radiation Oncology Physics Div
Faculty Therapy Medical Physicist
Summary: Due to continued growth, the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine has an exceptional opportunity for an academic radiation therapy medical physicist to join our faculty. For this position, we seek applications at the instructor to assistant professor level and will consider applicants with varying clinical and academic interests. Rank will be determined based on academic experience and qualifications. Startup package may be available for development of an academic career as an independent investigator. All faculty positions have dedicated academic time.
Environment: The medical physics division currently has over 30 faculty and staff physicists for support of our clinical operations, research, and educational activities. The division is well supported with over 50 other members consisting of medical physics assistants, QA technicians, residents, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and staff. The Department of Radiation Oncology supports a state-of-the-art clinic located at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Siteman Cancer Center, as well as several clinical affiliates. Clinical resources include numerous linear accelerators, a GammaKnife-Icon, very busy brachytherapy services with two HDR remote afterloaders, and a spectrum of imaging devices, including a dedicated MR-simulator with HIFU capability, clinical MR-IGRT and adaptive RT programs, and proton radiotherapy service. The institution is firmly committed to advancing the field of radiation therapy by actively pursuing novel clinical/research projects and investing in cutting-edge technology. We are in the process of going live with a new MR-linac, a dedicated research Halcyon system is being installed, plans are under way for another proton system, and there is a wide spectrum of other research, developmental, and clinical projects. The department supports several education programs, including the longest-standing CAMPEP accredited medical physics residency. Research infrastructure and funding are diverse and the research support resources are outstanding. The department offers highly productive collaboration opportunities with our clinical and cancer biology colleagues as well as university wide collaboration opportunities across various departments in medical and other schools.
The successful candidate must be certified or eligible for certification by the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Medical Physics and have academic/research interests, including mentorship of graduate students, post doctorate fellows, and/or medical physics residents. Prior experience and active interest in SRS is preferred for this position. Washington University is an equal opportunity employer.
