An opening is now available for a research appointment in the Department of Medical Physics at the postdoctoral level for individuals interested in medical physics research. The two-year research project entails the development of an automated external radiotherapy treatment planning system for clinical use. Applicants should have a strong background on mathematical modeling, and optimization algorithms. Programming skills are required. Experience with Matlab and C/C# is desirable. While a strong background in medical physics and radiotherapy treatment planning is preferred, all physics and engineering backgrounds will be considered. Experience with Eclipse treatment planning system is a plus, but not required.
Selected candidates who satisfactorily complete all aspects of the postdoctoral research fellowship will be given preferential admission to the two-year MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in Therapeutic Medical Physics, which would lead to a career in medical physics.
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over forty faculty physicists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to diagnosis and therapy for cancer.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and is recognized as a world leader in clinical cancer care and research.
Interested candidates should send a resume and list of three references by the end of May 2017 via e-mail to:
