Applications are sought for a new full-time faculty position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Emory University School of Medicine under the guidance of the Director of Medical Physics.
Emory’s Department of Radiation Oncology serves seven clinical institutions (Emory University Hospital Clifton, Emory University Hospital Midtown, Emory Proton Therapy Center, Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital, Grady Hospital, Emory Decatur Hospital, and Emory Hillandale Hospital) in the Atlanta metro area and is an integral part of Winship, a National Cancer Institute-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The Department is significantly expanding clinical services at its Midtown location. The Winship Cancer Institute as Emory Midtown is constructing a new center that is scheduled to open in May of 2023. In this new environment, the Radiation Oncology Department will house 4 treatment machines: 1 Halcyon, 2 TrueBeams equipped with Advanced Imaging and Identify capabilities, with the 4th machine to be determined in the near future. A dedicated Nucletron HDR operative suite will be available for all HDR procedures and treatments. The site will house a Twinbeam Siemens CT scanner and a 1.5 T Siemens MRI unit within our Department. This new medical physics position was created to support clinical services at the Midtown location.
The department has grown in its clinical, teaching, and research activities in the past decade. There are currently more than 60 faculty members in the department’s Divisions of Clinical Affairs, Cancer Biology and Medical Physics. In addition, there is a CAMPEP accredited three-year training program for medical physics residents, as well as, a four-year training program for radiation oncology residents. Emory medical physics faculty also participate in Georgia Institute of Technology’s medical physics education and research programs. The Medical Physics Division has a successful research program and has multiple investigators funded by NIH grants.
Candidates must have a PhD, or equivalent doctoral degree. ABR board certification in therapeutic radiological physics is preferred. The candidate is expected to support clinical services, participate in the education of medical physicist residents and medical residents, and conduct clinical and translational research. Applicants who have research interests that significantly contribute to the overall departmental academic effort are strongly encouraged to apply. Emory School of Medicine is renowned as a premier research institution.
