The Medical Physics and Biophysics Division at the Department of Radiation Oncology is seeking a faculty-level diagnostic MRI scientist to support development of an MRI program in Radiation Oncology. The department is installing a 3T MRI unit to provide external beam simulation, MR guided brachytherapy procedures and research scanning, as well as an MR LINAC for real-time MR guided external beam treatments. The scientist will oversee the MR Safety and MR Quality Assurance programs and will participate in developing and maintaining imaging protocols needed for external beam treatment planning and for MR guided brachytherapy procedures. The scientist will also be responsible for developing imaging protocols to support the research interests of the department, as well as for developing his/her own MR-based R&D programs. The scientist will also oversee the MR aspects of the MR guided LINAC including imaging QA, developing efficient processes for real-time imaging and cooperating with therapeutic physics staff to develop image guided adaptive treatment procedures. The successful candidate will join a Physics staff of 50 including 20 faculty physicists and will provide clinical support for the department’s overall MR efforts. Close collaboration with faculty and staff in the Departments of Radiation Oncology and with the MR group in the Department of Radiology will be essential. The scientist must have a Ph.D. in physics, engineering or related field, and experience in the diagnostic use of MRI. Excellent communication skills are essential for this position. While the position is mainly clinical, interest in research and external funding will be a major advantage. Academic appointment at Harvard Medical School at the rank of Instructor, Assistant Professor, or Associate Professor will be available for appropriately qualified candidates, commensurate with experience, qualifications and fulfillment of teaching responsibilities. Interested applicants should apply via email. Please insert name of applicant on email subject line.
Facility and Equipment:
Facilities include 14 Varian linacs, including 2 stereotactic linacs, 2 HDR units with dedicated CT scanner, a Co-60 TBI unit and 8 CT-simulators. State-of-the-art pre-clinical focal irradiation facilities are also available.
Additional Salary Information: salary commensurate with experience
