Seeking postdoctoral scholar to join NIH funded internal radiation dosimetry software development project at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA.
The objective of the project is to develop an unrestricted internal dosimetry software package. information can be found at our website www.MIRDcalc.org. We are aiming to innovate in the field of internal dosimetry calculations with respect to education, standardization, uncertainty analysis, population processing, as well as develop platforms for further innovation.
Strong problem-solving skills in addressing varied problems is crucial. Computer programming and software engineering skills are preferred. Knowledge and experience with MS Excel, Visual Basic, Java, C is useful, but other programming languages are also acceptable. Experience with clinical imaging and/or therapy is a plus but not required. The ability to work as part of a team is essential, while the ability to work independently and complete assigned arms of the project is also essential.
If there is interest, there may be opportunities for the candidate who satisfactorily complete all aspects of the postdoctoral research fellowship to be considered for admission to the two-year MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in Medical Imaging 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 (note the Kesner Lab MIRDcalc project in your application) by December 31, 2019 via e-mail to:
