Medical Physics: Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Physics: Health Physics/Radiation Safety, Medical Physics: Nuclear Medicine
A tenure track faculty-level (Instructor, Assistant or Associate Prof) position is available in the Radiological Physics Division of the Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science. A comprehensive start-up package that includes space and funding support will be provided.
The successful candidate will be encouraged to expand current Division activities by developing their own grant-funded program. A strong interest and dedication to engaging in diverse areas of medical physics-related research in a highly multidisciplinary and collaborative environment is essential. The candidate will also have the opportunity to engage in research utilizing the world class instrumentation resources available at Hopkins, including, most recently, MRI/PET and MALDI mass spectroscopic imaging instrumentation.
Faculty within the Radiological Physics Division (RPD) in Radiology are engaged in: Preclinical studies to optimize radiopharmaceutical therapy (RPT) with alpha particle emitters. Clinical trials to evaluate treatment planning for combination external-beam radiotherapy and RPT. Imaging, including SPECT quantification of Ra-223 and other alpha-emitters, optimization of pediatric nuclear medicine, CT related to spectral photon counting, cardiac and acute ischemia detection. Dosimetry for alpha-emitter RPT and ongoing dose-response evaluations and radiobiological modeling. Radiation safety identifying strategies that better communicate radiation doses and risks with patients and staff.
The Division is also in the process of establishing Masters, Ph.D. and certificate training programs in medical physics as well as a clinical physics support service to assure that all imaging equipment across the various Hopkins sites meet regulatory and Hopkins quality standards.
We believe that diversity in the work environment, especially a research environment, increases creativity, leads to greater productivity and helps make coming to work a pleasure. For these reasons, the Radiological Physics Division at Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine does not discriminate on the basis of: race, color, national origin, immigration status, ethnicity, age, disability, religion, sex, gender, pregnancy, military status, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, and other legally protected characteristics.
About Radiological Physics Division Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
The Johns Hopkins Department of Radiology and Radiological Science is committed to exceptional clinical care, innovative research, and top educational programs. With over 220 faculty and 1,500 staff members performing over 1,000,000 exams annually, our department is on the frontlines of transforming the practice of radiology.
Clinical Expertise: Radiology is a part of almost every patient’s story, and we are proud to offer the highest quality diagnostic and treatment services to provide the best possible care to our patients. Our expert faculty are part of multi-disciplinary clinical teams, collaborating with other medical and surgical physicians across Johns Hopkins Medicine and serving an active role on tumor boards, surgical planning teams and other cross- functional units.
Commitment to Education: We are dedicated to educational excellence as a leading academic medical center. Our team fosters top educational programs including a diagnostic residency program consisting of 40 residents, ranked number one in the past by Aunt Minnie, a new combined diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology residency program, a nuclear medicine residency program, a new molecular i...maging residency, and 43 fellowship positions in 9 different subspecialties to further develop diagnostic and treatment expertise.
Advancements in Research: Our research faculty and physician-scientists are paving the way forward with groundbreaking discoveries and translational research to further understand disease, develop new technologies, and innovate new diagnostic and treatment methods. Our department is internationally recognized for its leadership in innovation and leading-edge research in all aspects of molecular, functional, and anatomic imaging. This is reflected in the funding it attracts, the number of Gold Medals awarded to faculty, the impact of faculty publications, service by faculty on the boards of journals, societies, and review panels, and the election of faculty to the National Institute of Medicine, the National Academy of Inventors and to fellowships of leading national and international societies.
