Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has an immediate opening within the Radiotherapy Physics Dosimetry Core at the Associate or Attending level (equivalent to Associate or Full Professor). This position will support the Director of the Dosimetry Core in the development and consistency of dosimetry services throughout the MSK network with a focus on major equipment quality assurance, acceptance testing, and commissioning. Position responsibilities include acceptance testing, commissioning, and equipment QA at our Manhattan facilities, support for acceptance testing and commissioning at other MSK facilities, oversight and auditing of enterprise-wide QA activities, training of medical physics staff and residents in QA activities, and participation in research and development related to radiation dosimetry. By 2019, MSK enterprise-wide radiation oncology resources will include twenty-nine linear accelerators, one MR-Linac, five HDR units, two MR simulators, ten CT simulators, and state-of-the-art inter- and intra-fractional imaging and motion management capabilities. The MSK radiation oncology physics team consists of over one hundred faculty level physicists, MS physicists, and dosimetrists. This is a position with leadership opportunities; candidates should have a strong clinical background, demonstrated academic interest in equipment quality assurance or dosimetry, and leadership potential and/or experience.
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 integration of MR and PET imaging into radiotherapy decision making, treatment planning, and delivery, 4D imaging and motion management, the development and clinical use of predictive models (tumor control and normal tissue complication probability), improved treatment planning optimization algorithms, and the development of informatics- based and adaptive radiotherapy processes (www.mskcc.org/departments/medical-physics). We have a strong philosophy that all facilities will provide outstanding treatment quality as well as contributions to the overall mission of MSK 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.
