The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Miami/Miller School of Medicine has immediate opening for an academically oriented Medical Physicist with strong clinical skills to join our Medical Physics faculty. The Department of Radiation Oncology has currently 13 medical physics faculty, 17 clinical faculty, including 3 physician scientists, 8 dosimetrists, 11 radiation oncology residents, 2 medical physics residents, 2 IT staff and 1 physics assistant.
The medical physics division in the Radiation Oncology Department is currently covering five radiation therapy venues, including Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC) at Main, West, Coral Gables, Deerfield Beach and Jackson Memorial Hospital (JMH). The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC) clinics is equipped with several modern Varian linear accelerators (TrueBeam, Trilogy, 23IX) with cone beam CT and arc-based treatment capabilities, Siemens CT simulators (20 and 64 slice), a 3.0T GE MRI, an Electa Gamma Knife Perfexion, a Nucletron LDR/HDR unit, Philips PET/CT, Vision RT and Viewray MRIdian MR-Guided Radiotherapy system. A Varian ProBeam proton therapy system is currently beam installed.
The department has a very active IMRT/VMAT, SRS (HyperArc and Gamma Knife) and SBRT, MR-Guided RT and HDR and LDR programs, with a fully functional implant suite. The department has Eclipse treatment planning system and operates on a completely electronic charting system using EPIC and ARIA.
The successful candidates should hold a PhD in physics, engineering, medical physics or related field and be ABR (or equivalent) certified, or eligible with minimum 2 years of experience in a clinical and research setting. The candidates with certification by the ABR (or equivalent) are preferred. Assistant Professor or Associate Professor level Faculty appointments are available for qualified candidates. To be eligible for Associate Professor level position, a substantial academic track record in the field of Medical Physics is required. The salary and level of the position are commensurate with the length, breadth and depth of experience. Clinical experience in IGRT, SRS/SBRT, MR-Guided RT and Proton Therapy is highly desirable. The ideal candidate should have strong clinical, technical and communication skills along with a commitment to translational research and teaching. Our expectation is that the candidate will be a valuable member of our translational research team and will begin to participate immediately.
The successful candidate will participate in providing clinical radiotherapy services in 3D CRT, IMRT/VMAT, SRS/SBRT, LDR/HDR Brachytherapy, IGRT, Proton Therapy, including performing of all physics related tasks and QA procedures. Participation in teaching for our CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics Residency and Medical Physics Graduate programs is expected.
Interested parties should submit their Curriculum Vitae referring to position number R100029123 along with a cover letter, summary of your career, including statement of research, teaching interests, future vision and 3 references to Nesrin Dogan, PhD at firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel: (305) 243-4255, Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, 1475 NW 12th Ave., Suite C123, Miami, Fl. 33136.
2 openings. Employer will assist with relocation costs.
