Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) has two immediate openings within the Radiotherapy Physics Service of the Department of Medical Physics at the Assistant or Associate Attending level (equivalent to Assistant or Associate Professor). These positions will support radiation oncology services at our Main Campus on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Position responsibilities include routine clinical support in external beam treatment planning, brachytherapy, and major equipment quality assurance. Significant contribution to our clinical research and development program is also expected. We are particularly interested in candidates experienced in MR-in-RT applications and those interested in clinical software development. Our Main Campus facility includes ten linear accelerators, two CT simulators, one PET/CT and one 3T MR simulator. The Main Campus physics team consists of over 50 faculty level physicists, MS physicists, and dosimetrists. Applicants must have a strong clinical background as well as a demonstrated ability and interest in clinical research.
MSKCC 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 (www.mskcc.org/departments/medical-physics). By 2019, MSK enterprise-wide radiation oncology and medical physics resources 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 contribute to the overall mission of 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 (email@example.com), or Joseph Deasy, Ph.D., Chair, Department of Medical Physics (firstname.lastname@example.org), Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065.
