The successful candidate will work with a team of medical physicist professionals on medical linear accelerator commissioning projects. The individual will serve as the lead physicist for a project. The projects will typically last 1 to 2 weeks and will be in clinics across the U.S. and on occasion international locations. The successful candidate will perform set-up, acceptance testing and commissioning data collection of radiation therapy equipment, treatment planning systems, and related therapy and imaging equipment and accessories; assist with relevant QA and QC in accordance with established procedures; data book compilation; and perform additional support duties for the commissioning team as directed.
Qualifications/Requirements: A minimum of 5 years therapy medical physics experience, MS, commissioning experience and board certification in therapy physics (ABR or equivalent) is required. Computer programming skills are a plus. The ideal candidate will be located near a major airport and will be able to travel (70% of the time) as commissioning projects are scheduled across the nation and internationally.
