The Duke University Clinical Imaging Physics Group (CIPG) seeks individuals to fill an imaging physicist position with a MS or PhD in medical physics or related field and prior clinical experience in the field. The individual should ideally have ABR board certification or eligibility in Diagnostic Radiologic Physics. Two years of clinical experience is preferred.
The individual shall have a broad understanding of imaging modalities in modern medicine, and be strong in technical, clinical, and scientific aspects of medical imaging. The imaging modalities include radiography, mammography, fluoroscopy, CT, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and MRI. The applicant will be responsible for commissioning, optimizing, and monitoring the performance of imaging equipment. The duties include medical physics inspections, analyzing the data, assessing the trends in equipment performance over time, maintaining required records and reports, coordinating with clinical staff, and interacting with clinicians on image quality and safety issues. A strong emphasis is placed on physics practices that are purposed to be operationally-oriented, efficient, scientifically based, and clinically- relevant, with strong aspirations to implement and practice Medical Physics 3.0 towards the future progression of the field. A minimum of one publication or presentation per year is expected. Responsibilities further include providing training to radiological technologists, radiology residents, and medical physics trainees. The individual may perform other related duties incidental to the work described herein including the ability to occasionally lift phantoms weighing up to fifty pounds. It is also expected the individual will have reliable transportation to and from clinical facilities which include multiple off-site locations.
Interested individuals should send complete curriculum vitae, the names of three references, and a brief statement of career objectives to Robin Kearney at email@example.com, and concurrently apply for the position on the Duke HR webpage (https://hr.duke.edu/careers/apply, REQ # 401449568).
