The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Miami/Miller School of Medicine has an immediate opening for an academically oriented Board certified Medical Physicist with strong clinical skills to join our Medical Physics faculty. The Department of Radiation Oncology currently has 14 physics faculty, 16 radiation oncology faculty, including 3 research scientists, 9 dosimetrists, 11 radiation oncology residents, 2 medical physics residents, and 2 IT staff.
The medical physics division in the Radiation Oncology Department is currently covering five radiation therapy venues, including Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC) at Main, West, Coral Gables, Deerfield Beach and Jackson Memorial Hospital (JMH). The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC) clinics are equipped with several modern Varian linear accelerators (TrueBeam, Trilogy, 23IX) with cone beam CT and arc-based treatment capabilities, Siemens CT simulators (20 and 64 slice), a 3.0T GE MRI, a Philips PET/CT, an Electa Gamma Knife Perfexion, a Nucletron LDR/HDR unit, Philips PET/CT and Viewray MRIdian MR-Guided Radiotherapy system. A Varian ProBeam proton therapy system is currently beam installed.
The department has a very active IMRT/VMAT, SRS/SBRT, MR-Guided RT and HDR and LDR programs, with a fully functional implant suite. The department has an Eclipse treatment planning system and operates on a completely electronic charting system using EPIC and ARIA.
The ideal candidate should hold a PhD in physics, engineering, medical physics or related field and be ABR (or equivalent) certified with a minimum of 2 years experience in a clinical and research setting. Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor level Faculty appointments are available for qualified candidates. To be eligible for an Associate or Professor level position, a substantial academic track record in the field of Medical Physics is required. The salary and level of the position are commensurate with the length, breadth and depth of experience. The ideal candidate should have strong technical and communication skills along with a commitment to translational research and teaching. Experience in IGRT, SRS/SBRT and MR-Guided RT is highly desirable. Our expectation is that the candidate will be a valuable member of our translational research team and will begin to participate immediately in academic projects guided by the Chief of Medical Physics. Considerations for supplemental funding will be given for those individuals with NIH/NCI funding.
The ideal candidate will participate in providing clinical radiotherapy services in 3D CRT, IMRT/VMAT, SRS/SBRT, LDR & HDR Brachytherapy, IGRT programs, including performing of all physics related tasks and QA procedures. Participation in teaching for our CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics Residency and Medical Physics Graduate programs are expected.
Interested parties should submit their Curriculum Vitae referring to position number R100029123 along with a cover letter, summary of your career, including statement of research, teaching interests, future vision and 3 references with contact information to Ms. Shannon O’Neil at firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel: (305) 243-4255, Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, 1475 NW 12th Ave., Suite C123, Miami, Fl. 33136.
