The Department of Radiation Oncology at Indiana University School of Medicine and IU Health Physicians is beginning a new phase of growth and development and currently has an opening for the Director of Radiation Oncology Physics.
The incumbent will be responsible for overseeing the provision of clinical physics services at all radiation oncology clinical sites. This person will also be responsible for developing and advancing the research agenda for radiation oncology physics in cooperation with the department chair and faculty. Physics plays a key role in the educational mission of the department. The Director of Radiation Oncology Physics will participate in strategic leadership forums setting the agenda for the entire department.
Ideal candidates will have the leadership skills necessary to manage a multi-site clinical physics division, and will demonstrate a commitment to education. In addition, the candidate will have demonstrable success in both independent and collaborative research.
In cooperation with the chair and senior health system leaders, the Director will play a key role in developing the clinical physics strategy across multiple IU Health system facilities and clinic locations. The health system is prepared to invest significant resources over the next several years assuring that all clinical sites have common state of the art facilities.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree in one of the physics disciplines, be board certified in radiation oncology physics, and should have 5 to 10 years of relevant experience. Prior leadership experience in an academic setting and a history of peer-reviewed extramural funding are highly desirable. Salary and rank will be based on experience and qualifications.
