Medical Physics: Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Physics: Health Physics/Radiation Safety, Medical Physics: Nuclear Medicine
The Environmental Health and Safety department at Stanford University is seeking a junior level medical physicist to join our Health Physics group. The successful candidate will provide imaging physics service for Stanford Health Care, Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital and the Veterans Administration Palo Alto Health Care Services (VAPAHCS) facility. The successful candidate will help hospital imaging service team to ascertain the safe use of medical ionizing imaging techniques and meet State and Federal regulations, Joint Commission recommendations, and University policies. The successful candidate is also expected to review proposed research uses of x-rays in human subjects, evaluate doses and estimate risks associated with the doses and provide investigators with such estimates and advise investigators on radiation safety issues and how to solve related problems. This position may also involve research support and healthcare staff training (for physicians, technologists, and nurses), as well as assistance in administrative efforts with regards to inspections and regulations. A small amount of travel (driving only) is expected to provide service to hospital satellite sites in bay area.
A Ph.D. in medical physics or related field is preferred. Master’s degree candidates with strong diagnostic medical physics background and experience will be considered. Candidates should have at least 3 years of experience working with radiology imaging equipment including especially radiography (CR/DR), fluoroscopy (II/FPD), mammography and CT. Nuclear medicine experience is a plus. The candidate must be eligible or certified in American Board of Radiology (ABR) or American Board of Medical Physics (ABMP).
