The Physics section of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Wake Forest School of Medicine is immediately seeking a qualified clinical physicist to fill a faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. It is expected that this position will provide support at our main campus although support at a regional practice may also be desired.
Our Radiation Physics team currently consists of 12 faculty members and 3 graduate students. There is also dedicated IT and engineering support. The Physics section is responsible for 8 linear accelerators at the main campus and 3 regional practices, a busy Gamma Knife center, a dedicated brachytherapy suite, wide-bore CT, PET/CT and 3T MRI scanners all located and staffed within the department. Additional tools include MOSAIQ, MIM, AW workstations, DoseLab, Identify and several treatment planning systems (RayStation, Pinnacle, Monaco).
Duties will include general clinical coverage and QA as well as support for special procedures; VMAT/IMRT, IGRT, SBRT/SRS, HDR/LDR, TBI/TSE and SGRT. This position requires a well-trained individual who has excellent interpersonal skills, strong motivation in clinical medical physics and a desire to work in a dynamic environment. Although the majority of the effort is to provide clinical service, various research and teaching opportunities also exist.
The position requires a graduate degree (PhD preferred) and board certification by the ABR in Therapeutic Radiologic Physics. Applications from all qualified candidates for this position are encouraged.
