Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) has a faculty-level opening within the Radiotherapy Physics Service of the Department of Medical Physics for an individual with a strong clinical background and demonstrated supervisory and management abilities to lead MSK programmatic growth north of Manhattan. Primary responsibilities will include management of a team of physicists and planners, coordination of technological and procedural development and rollout, and ensuring adherence to the OneMSK philosophy which strives for consistent high quality care for all patients across MSKCC facilities. Some clinical work is expected as is travel between outpatient facilities and our Manhattan campus. This position requires a Ph.D. in medical physics or closely-related field, ABR certification, a minimum of five years of strong clinical experience in areas such as IMRT/VMAT, IGRT, SRS, SBRT, and demonstrated managerial/supervisory experience. This is an excellent opportunity for an individual looking to move into a leadership position.
MSK has a large, cutting-edge program in all aspects of radiation oncology physics that seeks to improve the clinical effectiveness of radiation therapy in partnership with radiation oncologists, radiologists and other medical professionals. Many new programs in radiation therapy research and development are ongoing, including: the development and clinical use of predictive models (tumor control and normal tissue complication probability) in treatment planning, improved treatment planning optimization algorithms, integration of MR and PET imaging into radiotherapy decision making and treatment planning, 4D imaging and motion management, and the development of informatics- based and adaptive radiotherapy processes (see www.mskcc.org/departments/medical-physics). By 2019, MSK radiation oncology and medical physics resources program-wide will include twenty-eight linear accelerators, one MR-Linac, six HDR units, CT, PET/CT and MRI simulators, and state-of-the-art inter- and intra-fractional imaging and motion management capabilities. We have a strong philosophy that all facilities will provide outstanding treatment quality as well as contributing to the overall mission of the MSKCC to advance the state of cancer care.
Interested individuals should send a letter and curriculum vitae to: Margie Hunt, M.S., Vice Chair, Radiotherapy Physics (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Joseph Deasy, Ph.D., Chair, Department of Medical Physics (email@example.com), Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065.
