The Department of Radiation Oncology is seeking highly motivated applicants for Medical Physicist positions supporting our clinical and academic missions at the Duke University Medical Center. We provide state-of-the-art cancer treatment for a wide variety of tumor types offering a full range of radiation treatment options including conformal precision radiation therapy, brachytherapy, and stereotactic therapies. We are equipped with modern linear accelerators including TrueBeam machines – all with OBI/CBCT for IGRT and gated treatment, photon and electron capabilities, large-bore CT simulators, PET/CT, MR unit, HDR units, ARIA information system, and Eclipse planning system. Special procedures include SRS, SBRT, IMRT/IGRT, prostate seeded implant, HDR, IORT, and TBI/TSI.
In addition to clinical support, the division of radiation physics also provides physics teaching for graduate students in medical physics, both medical physics and radiation oncology residents, and medical students from the Duke medical school. Active research programs involve IMRT/IGRT, 3-D dosimetry, oncologic and biological imaging, automatic treatment planning, radiomics and deep-learning, modeling of radiation damage for normal tissues and of tumor control using radiation, advanced MR imaging, stereotactic radiosurgery, stereotactic body radiotherapy, and image-guided brachytherapy.
We are seeking early career and experienced level individuals with a Masters or PhD degree and clinical and/or teaching/research experience. A faculty position may be considered contingent on credentials and qualifications.
