The Department of Radiation Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University is seeking a board certified medical physicist for a faculty position, This physicist will join our team of currently 6 physicists and 5 dosimetrists. The physicist will play a significant role in management and performance of clinical physics duties. In addition, the candidate is expected to contribute to the department’s research and educational programs
Facility and Equipment:
The physics and dosimetrist team provides medical physics services to OHSU and its two off-campus sites. The main Marquam Hill campus department has four Linac vaults, one is equipped with a Tomotherapy HD unit, two are equipped with Elekta Versa HDs, and a fourth has a dedicated stereotactic treatment Novalis TX unit. Additional technology includes onboard imaging, Exactrac, Active-Breathing Control (ABC) device, Calypso 4D, VisionRT, and robotic table tops (Hexapod and BrainLab). The Department also features an Intrabeam unit, a Mobetron device, an HDR (high-dose rate) brachytherapy system, a COMs Plaques program, a 16-slice Philips simulator with 4DCT (four-dimensional computed tomography) capability, and a TOF CT-PET (time-of-flight computed tomography-Positron emission tomography) scanner. Treatment modalities include 3D-CRT, IMRT, IGRT, VMAT, SRS, SBRT, LDR, HDR, TBI, TSE, and IORT. Treatment planning systems include Eclipse, Pinnacle, Plaque Simulator, BrainLab’s iPlan, TomoPlan and Elekta Monaco.
This position requires a M. Sc. (PhD preferred) or equivalent degree in medical physics, radiological physics, or related field and completion of a residency program in clinical medical physics or two years of post-graduation experience. Demonstrated ability to work independently and in a team, experience with the technology available at OHSU (listed above) is very much desired. Certification in therapeutic

About Oregon Health & Science University
Oregon Health & Science University is the state’s only academic health center. It provides an uncommon array of services from providing the state’s most comprehensive health care, to educating the next generation of clinicians and biomedical researchers, to achieving breakthroughs and innovations.
OHSU is the kind of place where the big news doesn't always involve sports, politics, fashion or even weather. The big news is always about health — health care, health education, health-related research. And various organizations and publications that rank American institutions, programs and faculty in a variety of categories have taken note.
Nearly one million patient visits each year. Educating thousands of future health care providers. You get the picture. Immerse yourself in more facts and stats than you probably need about Portland's largest employer, Oregon's provider of care to every corner of the state, and one of the nation's top 28 biomedical research institutions.
