The Department of Medical Physics at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is looking for a full-time, postdoctoral researcher with expertise in biomedical imaging and image processing. The position involves clinical and experimental research in developing advanced tumor tracking methods for external beam radiotherapy. MSKCC has an active research program to develop imaging applications that can inform and improve radiation oncology treatment decisions.
This is a full-time two-year appointment. Selected candidates will have an option to enroll in a two year MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in either Therapeutic Medical Physics or Medical Imaging Physics following the completion of the postdoctoral research fellowship. Admission to the residency program is contingent on satisfactory completion of all aspects of postdoctoral research and an appropriate background in advanced physics.
The ideal candidate should have expert knowledge of medical imaging, image processing and pattern recognition. A strong proficiency in C/C++, Python, ITK and visualization tools including VTK is highly desirable. Matlab programming and some knowledge of machine learning is a plus. The research will focus on developing algorithms that detect 6D motions of a target in real time through in-treatment x-ray imaging. The candidate will work closely with medical physics and radiation oncologists in developing the methods applied to lung cancer treatment and paraspinal stereotactic body radiation therapy.
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over forty faculty physicists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to diagnosis and therapy for cancer. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and is recognized as a world leader in clinical cancer care and research.
Interested candidates should send a resume and list of three references by e-mail to:
