A postdoctoral scholar position is available in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University. The PHASER program is a collaboration between the Department of Radiation Oncology and SLAC National Laboratory to develop next generation medical linear accelerator technology that will deliver doses near instantaneously. The successful candidate will investigate strategies for extremely rapid bremsstrahlung x-ray production and intensity-modulation, and optimized geometries and treatment planning approaches. Expertise in Monte Carlo simulation (e.g., Geant4, EGS-NRC, FLUKA, MCNP), excellent programming skills, advanced computation techniques (e.g., GPU computing), and familiarity with radiation therapy and treatment planning are sought. A Ph.D. in Medical Physics or a related field is required. The term of the appointment is yearly, renewable with an anticipated duration of 2-3 years. Interested candidates should send a cover letter detailing career goals, research interests, technical expertise and CV with three references. Please also include citizenship/visa status.
