Medical Physics: Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Physics: Radiological Physics - General
The Department of Imaging Physics has an immediate opening for a faculty appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor, Clinical Faculty Appointment. This is a clinical, non-tenure track position for a Qualified Medical Physicist to provide service and expertise primarily in the Section of Radiological Physics in the Department of Imaging Physics, Division of Diagnostic Imaging. Demonstration of academic achievement through high impact publications and scientific collaborations is highly desirable. The Department provides medical imaging physics support to the primary campus of MD Anderson Cancer Center as well as satellite sites within the greater Houston area. This position requires independent clinical and scientific effort in the physics of diagnostic imaging related to general radiography, fluoroscopy, mammography, interventional radiology, and computed tomography. The technical emphasis of the position will be in the evaluation and integration of imaging systems and continuous quality improvement, and the ideal candidate will have experience in data systems and stochastic process control. In addition, the candidate will provide support for development and maintenance of imaging protocols; provide consultations regarding patient safety; conduct acceptance, annual, and other periodic equipment testing; and participate in the development and execution of ongoing quality control programs. Participation in appropriate educational programs is also expected. Refer to the Department of Imaging Physics web page for additional information about the department and its programs.
MD Anderson is an NCI-designated cancer center with a very large Diagnostic Imaging department. The ideal candidate will work with a team of diagnostic medical physicists as experts supporting all technical aspects of radiological imaging and be able to independently provide clinical coverage in computed tomography, interventional radiology, mammography, general radiography, and fluoroscopy. Expertise in data systems and data management is highly desirable for this position
PhD or an equivalent degree in Medical Physics from a CAMPEP accredited program or related field is required. The candidate must also have, or obtain within three (3) years of hire, certification from the American Board of Radiology in the specialty area of Diagnostic Medical Physics and a full Texas License in Diagnostic Radiological Physics. Two years of experience in clinical medical physics support, inclusive of a CAMPEP-accredited diagnostic medical physics residency, of the applicable modalities within the Radiological Physics section is preferred, but not required.
