Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has an immediate opening at the Associate Attending or Full Attending level (equivalent to Associate or Full Professor) for a Service Chief to lead the Medical Physics Computer Service. The Service Chief will lead a team currently consisting of six software engineers, two faculty physicists, and six systems administrators and support staff. The Service leads development of new clinical software systems and provides enterprise-wide systems support for radiotherapy planning, simulation and treatment delivery systems. Position responsibilities include: leadership in the development of novel software applications to support radiation oncology planning and treatment delivery management; supervision of the service; ensuring an integrated approach to enterprise-wide medical physics and radiation oncology equipment and IT systems administration; and ensuring close collaboration and integration with other MSK departmental IT groups in addition to MSK institutional IT groups. By the end of 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. This is a leadership position within the Department of Medical Physics. Candidates must have strong software development experience, some familiarity with imaging data including DICOM, excellent communication skills, and leadership potential and/or experience. Experience leading or managing a software development group is strongly preferred. Candidates with backgrounds in radiotherapy or imaging medical physics, biomedical engineering, computer science or similar disciplines are encouraged to apply.
MSKCC has a long tradition of leading innovation in all aspects of radiation oncology physics and technology to improve the clinical effectiveness of radiation therapy. To achieve this, we work closely with radiation oncologists, radiologists and other medical professionals. Many new programs in radiation therapy research and development are ongoing, including: improved automated treatment planning; adaptive radiotherapy processes; the increased integration of MRI and PET imaging into radiotherapy decision making, treatment planning, and delivery; 4D imaging and motion management; and the development and clinical use of predictive models (tumor control and normal tissue complication probability) for treatment design (see 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.
