Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology, Medical Physics: Radiological Physics - General
A postdoctoral position is available in the Medical Physics division of the Department of Radiation Oncology at University of Colorado Cancer Center. The project involves incorporation of lung function imaging into radiation therapy for lung cancer patients. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in medical physics, physics, engineering, or a related field. Experience in programming, treatment planning, outcome modeling, and image processing are preferred. While this position is primarily R&D, successful candidates will gain clinical radiotherapy physics experience as well as clinical trial experience.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information of three references.
The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is an NCI-Designated Cancer Center with 14 faculty physicians, 10 faculty physicists, 2 physics residents, and an ever-growing team of 5 postdoctoral researchers. We utilize 5 clinical linear accelerators, 2 CT simulators, and a full suite of LDR/HDR brachytherapy. Our department is a world leader in the developm...ent and utilization of SBRT, and our ongoing research projects include motion management, pancreatic SBRT, DCE-perfusion, CBCT imaging, outcomes modelling, accelerator design, and big data in oncology.
