The Department of Radiation Oncology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania has an immediate position for a post-doctoral fellow in medical physics. The specific project will involve the development of artificial intelligence methods to streamline radiotherapy workflow. Experience in Monte Carlo simulation, computer modelling, image processing, image segmentation, machine learning or computer vision is strongly preferred. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics or applied physics; computer science or engineering. Strong analytical and computing skills with experience in Matlab, Python or C/C++ is a pre-requisite for this position. Applicants from fields outside of medical physics have a career development opportunity to enroll in Penn’s CAMPEP accredited medical physics certificate program (https://www.med.upenn.edu/mpp/cmp.html) and acquire eligibility for clinical physics residency training for a future career in medical physics.
