The University of Kansas Health System (UKHS) is seeking two experienced medical physicists with strong clinical skills to join a dynamic clinical, research, and teaching-oriented department. One of the positions is at the hospital campus, and the second position is at one of our community hospital locations. Providing exceptional clinical radiation therapy services to our patients is a priority at the UKHA. In addition, Faculty members are expected to actively participate in research and teaching programs, including teaching of radiation oncology residents and medical physics residents. The opportunity to serve in a leadership role in the research program may be available to interested candidates, as are opportunities to mentor junior faculty.
The successful candidate will have either a Ph.D. or Master’s degree in physics or a closely related discipline. Other requirements include board certification by the American Board of Radiology or the American Board of Medical Physics, and a minimum of 5 years clinical experience. The candidate will also have experience working with and fostering a diverse faculty, staff, and student environment. A demonstrated record of peer-reviewed publications and commitment to clinical, translational and/or basic research is a plus.
The Department of Radiation Oncology provides a full range of clinical services at the University of Kansas Health System and its 6 area community facilities including two community hospitals and 4 comprehensive cancer centers. Services provided include, SRS/SRT, SBRT, Brachytherapy (HDR&LDR), IMRT, Breathing Motion Management, TBI, TSE, and Radiopharmaceutical Administration. In addition, our Department is the leader in the Kansas City area in pediatric radiation therapy. UKHS clinics are equipped with 11 Varian linacs, including True Beam, Novalis TX, Trilogy, IX and EX with IGRT, state of the art imaging (CT, PET, SPECT, MRI), and 3 Calypso systems. The Division of Medical Physics consists of eleven physicists, two physics resident trainees and staff who support a full range of clinical, research, and educational services. The UKHS offers physics residency training via a CAMPEP-approved residency program.
