Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) has an immediate opening within the Radiotherapy Physics Service of the Department of Medical Physics for an M.S. level physicist to support radiation oncology services at our Westchester Campus in Harrison, NY. Position responsibilities include external beam treatment and HDR planning, chart checks, and linac quality assurance. Active participation is also expected in support of new treatment protocols, treatment planning strategies, translation of treatment planning techniques across MSKCC facilities and teaching of visitors, students and residents. Experience is not required but is strongly preferred.
The MSKCC radiotherapy program is spread across seven facilities in Manhattan, Westchester County, Long island, and New Jersey and treats approximately 625 patients per day. Enterprise-wide, the Radiotherapy Physics Service is staffed with over 100 physicists and planners providing a rich, stimulating work environment. The physics team at our Westchester facility currently includes four faculty-level physicists and six planners in support of four linacs and one HDR unit.
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). MSK enterprise-wide radiation oncology and medical physics resources will include twenty-nine linear accelerators, one MR-Linac, five HDR units, 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 MSKCC to advance the state of cancer care.
Interested individuals should apply directly through the MSKCC website (www.mskcc.org) or send a letter and curriculum vitae toSharon Feltes, email@example.com
