Outstanding candidates interested in pursuing an academic career in medical physics are sought for a post-doctoral research associate position in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine. In this position you will benefit from a vast array of resources and exceptional training in a top-ranked clinical environment. The primary focus of this project is to develop a machine-learning model to predict clinical outcomes for cervical cancer patients treated with a combination of IMRT and intracavitary brachytherapy who have been tracked by serial magnetic resonance (MRI) and PET imaging. This includes extending our imaging processing pipeline to include computation of radiomic feature maps from MRI imaging; registering serial images to common reference anatomy, and training/validating machine learning and statistical outcome models.
The ideal candidate will have experience in processing large data sets, medical imaging registration, and machine/deep learning and a basic knowledge biostatistics. Good scientific programming and data processing skills, preferably C++/Python/MATLAB, are required. While the position involves primarily translational research, the successful candidate will have opportunities to gain experience in clinical medical physics and become eligible to apply for residency training in medical physics. This position will provide an excellent opportunity for the successful candidate to pursue a career in the field of radiation oncology physics.
Candidates are encouraged to apply by sending their CV and 2 letters of reference to Dr. Jeffrey Williamson and Dr. Perry Grigsby.
