The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Florida has a junior faculty physicist opening in Gainesville, FL. The medical physicist will join a team of seven faculty physicists, two medical physics residents, eight radiation oncologists, eight radiation oncology residents, and four dosimetrists. The position is for an individual seeking a rewarding and challenging experience in academic radiation oncology physics.
The department is equipped with a Varian linac (Trilogy), five Elekta linacs (including two VERSA HD), a Philips 4D CT, a dedicated Phillips Ingenia MR Sim, an intrabeam unit, an Orthovoltage unit, and a HDR unit. The installation of an Elekta MR linac (Unity) is underway and expected to be completed by June 2022. In addition to 3D/arc conformal radiotherapy, clinical treatments provided include intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), MR-guided HDR, intrabeam treatment, total skin electron therapy (TSET), and total body irradiation (TBI). CBCT and two surface-guided tracking systems (VisionRT and C-Rad) are used for patient setup and localization. The department has a well-established medical physics residency program and medical physics graduate program (both accredited by CAMPEP).
Responsibilities – responsibilities include (1) all aspects of clinical radiation oncology physics; (2) participation in the medical physics graduate student teaching and medical physics residency training; (3) clinical coverage for special treatment procedures and brachytherapy; (4) case submission for special protocol patients; (5) oversight for work of therapists and dosimetrists; and (6) implementation of advanced technology in treatment planning and delivery.
Required qualifications - a doctoral degree in medical physics or related field, board certification with the American Board of Radiology in radiotherapy physics (or eligibility to take the oral exam), and work or sufficient training relevant to the field of clinical medical physics are required.
Preferred qualifications - knowledge of Elekta MOSAIQ, VERSA HD linac, and Philips Pinnacle or Elekta Monaco treatment planning system is preferred.
Please submit resume to Sylvia Hoover at email@example.com. Anticipated starting date: July 1, 2022. Application deadline: February 15, 2022.
