The Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University is seeking for a motivated medical physicist to join our Clinician Educator faculty line. The candidate is expected to support all aspects of the Physics Division’s clinical responsibilities. Involvement in departmental research initiatives is strongly encouraged. The successful candidate is to show initiative and commitment in their clinical and teaching work. Excellent communication skills and critical thinking are essential. The major criteria for appointment shall be excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, clinical teaching, and institutional service. Teaching is expected of all physics faculty.
Eligibility criteria: ABR (Therapy) or equivalent certification is desired, however applications from those candidates who are eligible for certification are also welcomed. Minimum of MS degree is required. Candidates must have a record of publications or formal conference presentations consistent with the academic focus of the position.
The department uses a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment over several sites, including 3 Varian dual-energy Linacs, 2 Trilogys, and a 4 TrueBeams, and 2 Accuray CyberKnife systems. The first Reflexion X1 PET/linac and ViewRay MRIdian are being installed this year. All accelerators are equipped with the Varian motion management systems as well as IGRT and Rapid Arc (VMAT) delivery. The department also has two PET/CT simulators and a 3T MRI simulator. Treatment planning systems include the latest Varian Eclipse and Accuray Precision systems integrated with the ARIA patient information system. Hardware and software virtualization have allowed the construction of an exciting next generation computing platform for radiotherapy planning and ultra-fast dose calculation. The brachytherapy service utilizes a VariSource HDR iX system with BrachyVision and Vitesse real-time planning. The department also supports a 250 kV X-ray and Mobetron IntraOp electron accelerator for IORT.
Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and applications from women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research, teaching and clinical missions. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Interested candidates should send a copy of their curriculum vitae, a cover letter outlining their suitability for the position and the names of three references to:
