The Department of Radiation Oncology at UT Southwestern Medical Center is seeking a clinical medical physicist to fill an academic faculty position within the Division of Medical Physics and Engineering. Appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor or higher. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in medical physics or a related field, ABR certification, and solid clinical experience. Although the emphasis is on clinical experience, a track record of clinical research in the field of radiotherapy would be beneficial. The ideal candidates should have strong communication skills along with a commitment to clinical innovation. The individuals sought will participate in the teaching of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, as well as residents in medical physics and radiation oncology. Personal attributes such as motivation, initiative, problem-solving, and teamwork are highly desired for this position.
The clinical physicist is expected to participate in and provide needed clinical support to the research activities in the Department. Research projects in the Division of Medical Physics and Engineering, funded by various federal and state agencies including eight active NIH R01 grants, range from small-animal irradiation, PET instrumentation, medical imaging, image-guided therapy, heavy ion therapy, and automatic treatment planning to artificial intelligence. An example research effort in our division is the MAIA Lab (www.utsouthwestern.edu/labs/maia).
Qualified applicants please email curriculum vitae to: Sharlah Dabney, MBA, Division Administrator, Division of Medical Physics and Engineering, at Sharlah.Dabney@UTSouthwestern.edu.

About UT Southwestern Medical Center
UT Southwestern is a leading academic medical center, world renowned for its research, regarded among the best in the country for medical education and for clinical and scientific training, and nationally recognized for the quality of clinical care that its faculty provides to patients at UT Southwestern University Hospitals & Clinics and affiliated institutions. With 6 Nobel Laureates and 22 members of the National Academy of Sciences currently on faculty, UT Southwestern is among the top biomedical research institutions in the nation and consistently ranks the No. 1 academic medical center in the world for publishing high-quality scientific research, according to Nature Index. The Department of Radiation Oncology is a leader in the development and clinical implementation of innovative treatment strategies. The Department currently has a total of 21 M.D.’s and 12 medical residents. The Division of Medical Physics and Engineering currently has 26 faculty-level physicists, 12 medical physics residents, 11 full-time dosimetrists, 3 research/service engineers, 3 scientific programmers, and more than 40 postdoctoral researchers and graduate students.
We currently provide patient care... to over 200 patients per day – many of which are treated with state-of-the-art machines and techniques. The clinical practice is currently in three buildings on the same campus. Our equipment includes 10 Varian and Elekta Linacs, one Elekta Gamma Knife Icon, one Accuray CyberKnife M6, one Varian VariSource iX HDR system, one superficial unit, two Philips large-bore 4-D CT simulators, one Brainlab Mobius mobile CT scanner, and Varian Eclipse and Brainlab Elements planning systems. A shielded OR is equipped with an additional Varian VariSource iX afterloader to perform intra-operative HDR procedures. We also perform a spectrum of cranial and pelvic LDR and nuclear medicine procedures. A dedicated breast SBRT device, GammaPod, has recently been commissioned. We are in the final planning stages for the construction of a new radiotherapy center, which will have an additional seven Linac vaults plus an MRI simulator and a PET/CT scanner. We anticipate officially breaking ground in fall 2019.
