The diagnostic imaging physics division in the Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital is seeking a physicist to join our team. The primary responsibilities of the physicist are:
Acceptance tests, annual survey, and ACR accreditation related tests of x-ray and ultrasound imaging equipment.
Radiation shielding design.
Radiation dosimetry and patient dose monitoring.
Imaging protocols optimization.
Research in medical imaging physics.
Physics support to other research groups in MGH Radiology.
ABR certification in diagnostic medical physics is preferred but is not initially required. Candidates who are eligible to apply for ABR Part 2 exam will be considered. Candidates who plan to take the 36 months of clinical experience pathway to ABR certification before 2023 will also be considered. This position provides a perfect opportunity of full-time clinical experience under the supervision of a group of certified medical physicists.
The candidate is expected to have the following skills and qualifications:
