The MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper is seeking a medical physics research director.
In addition to excellent clinical physics service, the position will mentor and support the academic growth of staff and resident physicists and seek opportunities for the group to engage in meaningful research and clinical projects. The ideal candidate would be an enterprising, energetic, and generous physicist entering mid-career seeking a positive and encouraging work environment in which to pursue their interests and promote their colleagues.
We have a close-knit group of physicists who support and help each other clinically and on projects, have excellent working relationships with the rest of the department, and have consistently among the highest employee engagement survey scores in the organization year after year. We offer good work-life balance in which physicists have time to pursue projects of interest in addition to clinical duties.
We have been an MD Anderson Cancer Network partner site, the highest level of affiliation and only one of six in the country, for almost ten years and benefit from MD Anderson’s expertise and collaborative opportunities. We are also affiliated with Rowan University, holding academic appointments in their medical school, which has offered additional opportunities for collaboration, and have an educational affiliation with Penn for whose students we offer clinical training and masters thesis advising. Finally, we have a physics residency for which our graduates have given very strong testimonials on our program website.
Cooper is the major health system in southern New Jersey and has been consistently growing and well-supported in that growth in technology updates and staffing. We have 3 locations in New Jersey with a 4th opening at the end of the year as well as a partner site in Pennsylvania. We have both Elekta and Varian TrueBeam linacs, a Unity (the 5th in the US), Gamma Knife, HDR brachytherapy, and MOSAIQ/Pinnacle/RayStation. The Philadelphia area is a vibrant one for medical physicists with an active local chapter that includes Penn, Thomas Jefferson, and Fox Chase among others. In addition to the city, there are plenty of family-friendly suburbs with great school districts nearby in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Interested applicants please submit a letter of introduction and a CV with references.
