The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Virginia is seeking applicants for multiple Postdoctoral Research Associate positions in the Medical Physics Division. Responsibilities include developing advanced radiation therapy treatment techniques including dose delivery verification, region-of-interest discrimination, 4D dose evaluation, dose optimization, and related image guided radiation therapy applications.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree, completed by time of hire, in Medical Physics, Physics, Mathematics, or Engineering. Strong scientific programming skills in C++ or other programming language are required. Skills in image processing, deformable image registration and radiotherapy plan optimization are desirable. The ability to work in a team environment, leadership qualities, and problem-solving skills are highly valued.
The Radiation Oncology Department and its satellite facilities are equipped with Varian and TomoTherapy linacs, a Philips Big Bore CT simulator, an Elekta Perfexion Gamma Knife, a Sensus SRT-100 superficial machine, a dedicated 3D MRI-guided focused ultrasound, and a Gulmay small animal irradiation and imaging platform. External beam treatment planning is carried out on Philips Pinnacle3, and TomoTherapy. Varian BrachyVision is used in our HDR/LDR brachytherapy program, where procedures are performed in an image guided brachytherapy suite with a CT on rails system. Current development programs include automated quality assurance and treatment planning techniques, image-guided adaptive radiation therapy, treatment optimization on time-dependent anatomy, and clinical outcome assessment.
