MEDICAL PHYSICS FACULTY/STAFF PHYSICIST RADIATION ONCOLOGY
Location: Durham, North Carolina
Type: Career Positions
Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology
Internal Number: 170901
The Department of Radiation Oncology is seeking highly motivated applicants for a Medical Physics faculty or staff physicist position supporting our clinical and academic missions at the Duke University Medical Center. We offer a wide range of radiation treatment options using state-of-the-art cancer treatment technologies including conformal external beam precision radiation therapy and brachytherapy. We are equipped with modern linear accelerators including TrueBeam machines – all with onboard kV/MV radiograph/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, LDR/HDR, IORT, and TBI/TSI.
In addition to clinical support, the division of radiation physics also provides physics teaching for graduate students in the medical physics graduate program, 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.
The successful candidate may provide a wide range of radiation therapy physics services and support including, but not limited to, treatment planning and delivery, SRS/SBRT, TBI/TSI, Brachytherapy, IMRT/IGRT, equipment acceptance/commissioning, quality assurance, and chart checking. In addition, this position may be expected to contribute to our academic mission of teaching, mentoring, and developing students, residents, and junior faculty; lead and/or participate in research and clinical related projects and initiatives; actively contribute to grant submissions and publications; and serve in internal/external committees and organizations.
