The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Kansas Hospital (UKH), and the University Of Kansas Cancer Center (UKCC) is seeking an experienced medical physicist with strong clinical skills to join a dynamic clinical, research and teaching-oriented department. The responsibilities will include providing clinical radiation therapy services for state-of-the-art programs, including IMRT, VMAT, SRS (CNS and body), IGRT ,LDR and HDR brachytherapy.
The position will be based primarily at the main UKH campus, but could also include coverage at our satellite clinics. The faculty member will also be expected to actively participate in the research and teaching programs, including teaching of radiation oncology residents and medical physics residents. The opportunity to serve in a leadership role in the research programs may be available to interested candidates, as are opportunities to mentor junior faculty.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. or Master degree in physics or a closely related discipline, certification by the American Board of Radiology or the American Board of Medical Physics, at least 5 years of medical physics experience in a healthcare environment, demonstrated experience working in and fostering a diverse faculty, staff, and student environment or commitment to do so as a faculty member at University of Kansas Hospital, and a demonstrated record of peer-reviewed publication and a commitment to clinical, transnational and/or basic research.
The Department of Radiation Oncology provides a full range of clinical services at the University of Kansas Health System and its 5 area community facilities. including two community hospitals and 3 comprehensive cancer centers. Services provided include SRS/SRT, SBRT, Brachytherapy (HDR&LDR), IMRT, Breathing Motion Management, TBI, TSE, Radiopharmaceutical, etc. Our department is the leader in the Kansas City area in pediatric radiation therapy. UKCC clinics are equipped with 10 Varian linear accelerators, including True Beam, Novalis TX, Trilogy, Big Bore 16 slice CT scanner, PET scanner, and 3 Calypso systems. We are actively pursuing proton therapy and planning to go clinical in late 2021. The Division of Medical Physics consists of 11 physicists, two physics resident trainees and staff who support a full range of clinical, research, and educational services. Faculty also participate in CAMPEP-approved residency programs
