Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) has an opening for a full time Radiotherapy Physicist within the Department of Medical Physics at our Manhattan campus. The successful candidate will have responsibilities in QA, planning, clinical support and development, initially within the Brachytherapy Physics team. However, over time, the candidate will assume broader responsibilities within the Clinical Physics Service, specifically both external beam and brachytherapy treatment planning, QA activities including initial and weekly chart checks, as well as training and teaching of staff and residents.
MSK has a large, cutting-edge program in all aspects of radiation oncology physics that seeks to improve the clinical effectiveness of radiation therapy in partnership with radiation oncologists, radiologists and other medical professionals. Radiation oncology and medical physics resources for external beam radiotherapy include twenty four linear accelerators across six locations, MR and PET scanners for radiation oncology applications, as well as state-of-the-art inter- and intra-fractional imaging and motion management capabilities. The brachytherapy program is one of the busiest and most innovative in the world with over 500 cancer patients treated each year. Brachytherapy equipment for the GU (LDR and HDR) and GYN (HDR) programs includes three Varian afterloaders, two brachytherapy rooms with in-room CBCT/fluoroscopy/ultrasound, and access to MRI and CT simulators. LDR and HDR services are also provided for IORT, GI and spine brachytherapy using two HDR-enabled operating rooms and support is provided for a busy ocular brachytherapy program.
The Brachytherapy Physics team consists of one Ph.D. level physicist, four M.S. level physicists and one dosimetrist. The External Beam Planning team is comprised of approximately twenty five planners and ten Ph.D. level physicists.
We are seeking individuals with an M.S. in Medical Physics or similar field with a minimum of two years experience as a Radiotherapy Physicist. Candidates must, at a minimum, have passed Part 2 of the ABR certification in therapeutic radiological physics process and be able to obtain a NY state license. Board certification and clinical experience in brachytherapy and external beam is preferred.
