Medical Physics: Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Physics: Health Physics/Radiation Safety, Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology
Emory’s Department of Radiation Oncology serves five clinical institutions in the Atlanta metro area and is an integral part of Winship, a National Cancer Institute-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. The newest practice site, The Emory Proton Therapy Center, offers pencil beam scanning.
The department has grown in its clinical, teaching, and research activities in the past decade and is currently ranked sixth in NIH funding among all radiation oncology departments within medical schools in the country (Blue Ridge 2017). There are currently 44 faculty members in the department’s Divisions of Clinical Affairs, Cancer Biology and Medical Physics. In addition, there is a fully accredited three-year training program for medical physics residents, as well as, a four-year training program for radiation oncology residents. Emory physics faculty also participate in Georgia Institute of Technology’s medical physics education and research programs. The Medical Physics Division has a successful research program and has multiple investigators funded by NIH and DoD in image-guided radiotherapy.
Candidates must have a PhD, or equivalent doctoral degree. ABR board certification in therapeutic radiological physics is preferred. The candidate is expected to support clinical services, participate in the education of medical physicist residents and medical residents, conduct clinical and translational research. Applicants who have research interests in that significantly contribute to the overall departmental academic effort are strongly encouraged to apply. Emory School of Medicine is renowned as a premier research institution.
