Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is a recognized world leader in clinical cancer care and research with multiple sites in Manhattan, New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester County. Salaries are competitive and we offer ample opportunities for continuing education development. MSKCC is an equal-opportunity/affirmative action employer.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) has two immediate openings within the Radiotherapy Physics Service of the Department of Medical Physics at the Assistant or Associate Attending level (equivalent to Assistant or Associate Professor). These positions will support an expansion in radiation oncology services at the Koch Center for Cancer Care, a new MSKCC facility located within several blocks of our main campus on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Upon opening, the Koch Center will house a 1.5T MR-linac and one conventional accelerator with a third vault for later expansion. Simulation capabilities will include CT, PET/CT and a dedicated 3T MR. Position responsibilities will include routine clinical physics support as well as clinical research and development. One of the positions will be at the Chief Physicist level with additional responsibility for overall management and supervision of clinical physics activities at the facility. All applicants must have a strong clinical background as well as a demonstrated ability and interest in clinical research.
MSKCC 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. Many new programs in radiation therapy research and development are ongoing, including: the development and clinical use of predictive models (tumor control and normal tissue complication probability) in treatment planning, improved treatment planning optimization algorithms, integration of MR and PET imaging into radiotherapy decision making and treatment planning, 4D imaging and motion management, and the development of informatics- based and adaptive radiotherapy processes (www.mskcc.org/departments/medical-physics). Resources within MSK radiation oncology and medical physics currently include twenty six linear accelerators across seven 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. Significant expansion is expected to continue in the next two years. We have a strong philosophy that all facilities will provide outstanding treatment quality as well as contributing to the overall mission of the center to advance the state of cancer care.
Interested individuals should send a letter and curriculum vitae to: Margie Hunt, M.S., Vice Chair of Radiotherapy Physics (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Joseph Deasy, Ph.D., Chair, Department of Medical Physics (email@example.com), Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065.
