Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology
Rhode Island Hospital, the primary academic affiliate of the Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Lifespan Cancer Institute, is seeking qualified applicants for the role of medical physicist at the rank of assistant professor. The department of radiation oncology has a three-fold mission: providing the highest quality and safest care to patients, educating the next generation of clinicians and medical physicists, and advancing medicine through research. The department chair and medical physics division chief seek to further enhance a tightly bound premier physics group. There are 10 academically minded medical physicists.
Radiation Oncology, sees over 1500 consults per year, and maintains a daily treatment census of approximately 115 patients. Equipment includes: Varian TrueBeam STx with ExacTrac, Varian Trilogy Accelerator with OBI & Align RT, Varian iX Accelerator with OBI, Accuray CyberKnife Radiosurgery, Gamma Knife Perfexion Radiosurgery, Elekta & Varian HDR Brachytherapy, Varian Eclipse & Phillips Pinnacle TPS and RaySearch RayStation. Rhode Island Hospital imaging includes state-of-the- art CT, MR and PET scanners. Satellite facilities are being planned.
There is a CAMPEP Accredited Therapy Medical Physics Residency Program, and a CAMPEP Accredited graduate program partnered with the University of Rhode Island. There is also a Physician Radiation Oncology Residency Program. Physics Faculty are expected to participate in teaching and research.
We are seeking a board certified, academically minded physicist, who possesses a strong work ethic, is creative, and wants career growth and mentorship. Protected time, limited start-up research support, and annual meeting attendance is provided to all physics faculty. Expertise in imaging, particularly in MRI, and strong communication skills are highly desired. Two years of experience beyond residency is required.
Providence is the third largest city in New England. Providence's Renaissance has created new parks and attractions and brought emphasis back to its historic roots. Down city events, historic vistas, eclectic districts such as College Hill and Federal Hill, and a great nightlife make Providence a worthwhile tourist destination and place to live. Beautiful beach and winter vacation destinations are within one to two hour’s drive.
