The University of Virginia invites applications for a tenure-ineligible medical physics faculty position to provide clinical medical physics support to the Department of Radiation Oncology and its associated facilities. Clinical responsibilities entail the full suite of routine and specialized clinical medical physics activities including external beam and brachytherapy quality assurance, treatment plan checks, chart checks, patient quality assurance, and dosimetry consults. The faculty member will be expected to participate in departmental teaching and initiate and participate in advanced development projects which blend with other division activities. Rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in Medical Physics or closely aligned discipline with at least one year of relevant clinical experience and a publication track record. Qualified candidates must be board certified or board eligible (minimum part 1 completed) in Medical Physics or equivalent by the American Board of Radiology (ABR) or American Board of Medical Physics (ABMP). The ideal candidate will have a minimum of three years clinical experience and a strong propensity for extramural support. The successful candidate will have leadership qualities, advanced problem-solving skills, and work well in a team environment.
The Radiation Oncology Department and its satellite facilities are equipped with Varian and TomoTherapy linacs, a Philips Big Bore CT simulator, an Elekta Perfexion Gamma Knife, a Sensus SRT-100 superficial machine, a dedicated 3D MRI-guided focused ultrasound, and a Gulmay small animal irradiation and imaging platform. External beam treatment planning is carried out on Philips Pinnacle3, and TomoTherapy. Varian BrachyVision is used in our HDR/LDR brachytherapy program, where procedures are performed in an image guided brachytherapy suite with a CT on rails system. Current development programs include automated quality assurance and treatment planning techniques, image-guided adaptive radiation therapy, treatment optimization on time-dependent anatomy, and clinical outcome assessment.
