Two openings are now available for research appointments in the Department of Medical Physics at the postdoctoral level for individuals interested in medical physics research. The two-year research projects will focus on the development and application of methods for automation in radiation oncology; specifically, automated segmentation, registration, planning, quality assurance and workflow in radiation oncology physics. Applicants must have strong programming skills and be proficient in Matlab, Python, Java or C/C#. Experience with deep learning is desirable.
If there is interest, qualified candidates who satisfactorily complete all aspects of the postdoctoral research fellowship will be considered for admission to the two-year MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in Therapeutic Medical Physics, which would lead to a career in medical physics. Matriculation to the residency program will be contingent on a review at the conclusion of the research fellowship.
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over forty faculty physicists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and is recognized as a world leader in clinical cancer care and research.
Interested candidates should send a resume and list of three references by October 31, 2019 via e-mail to:
