At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we’re not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we’re driving excellence and improving outcomes. Join us and make a difference every day.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is a recognized world leader in clinical cancer care and research with sites in Manhattan, New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester County. Salaries are competitive and we offer ample opportunities for continuing education development. MSK is an equal-opportunity/affirmative action employer.
The Radiotherapy Physics Service at the Department of Medical Physics has multiple immediate openings within the Assistant and Associate Attending levels (equivalent to Assistant and Associate Full Professor). These positions will support radiation oncology physics services at our Main Campus on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Position responsibilities include routine clinical support in external beam treatment planning, brachytherapy, and major equipment quality assurance. Significant contribution to our clinical research and development program is also expected. We are particularly interested in candidates experienced in MR-in-RT applications, automation, and those interested in clinical software development. Our Manhattan Main Campus and Koch facilities include eleven linear accelerators, one MR-linac, three HDR units, three CT simulators, one PET/CT and two 3T MR simulators dedicated to radiation oncology procedures and state-of-the-art inter- and intra-fractional imaging and motion management capabilities. The Main Campus physics team consists of over 75 staff including faculty level physicists, MS physicists, and dosimetrists. Applicants must have a strong clinical background as well as a demonstrated ability and interest in clinical research and development.
MSK has a large, cutting-edge program in all aspects of radiation oncology physics that seeks to improve the clinical effectiveness of radiation therapy in partnership with radiation oncologists, radiologists and other medical professionals. Many new programs in radiation therapy research and development are ongoing, including: integration of MR and PET imaging into radiotherapy decision making, the development of informatics-based radiotherapy processes, adaptive and automated radiotherapy planning, 4D imaging and motion management, automated segmentation, and the development and clinical use of predictive models (tumor control and normal tissue complication probability) (www.mskcc.org/departments/medical-physics). MSK enterprise-wide radiation oncology and medical physics resources include thirty linear accelerators treating more than 650 patients each day. We have a strong philosophy that all facilities will provide outstanding treatment quality as well as contributing to the overall mission of MSKCC to advance the state of cancer care.
The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. in physics, medical physics, or a related field, possess ABR Certification, or be ABR eligible, have a strong clinical background and academic interest in radiotherapy physics.
Interested individuals should send a letter and curriculum vitae to: Laura Cerviño, Ph.D., Chief, Radiotherapy Physics (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Joseph Deasy, Ph.D., Chair, Department of Medical Physics (email@example.com), Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065.
