The Medical Physics Division in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Miami/Miller School of Medicine has an immediate opening for an academically oriented Medical Physicist with strong clinical skills to join our Medical Physics faculty. The Department of Radiation Oncology currently has 17 medical physics faculty, 17 clinical faculty, including 8 research scientists, 12 dosimetrists, 11 radiation oncology residents, 4 medical physics residents, 2 medical physics assistants and 2 IT staff.
The Medical Physics Division in the Radiation Oncology Department currently covers five radiation therapy venues, including Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC) at Main, West, Coral Gables, Deerfield Beach and Jackson Memorial Hospital (JMH). The Radiation Oncology clinics are equipped with several modern Varian linear accelerators (TrueBeam, Edge, Trilogy, 23IX) with cone beam CT and arc-based treatment capabilities, Siemens CT simulators, a 3.0T GE MRI, an Elekta Gamma Knife Perfexion, a Nucletron LDR/HDR unit, Philips PET/CT, Vision RT, Viewray Linac MR-Guided Radiotherapy, Varian Ethos Adaptive Therapy Platform, Varian HyperArc Automated SRS Planning and Delivery System, and a single room Varian ProBeam proton therapy system with one rotating gantry beam. The department has an Eclipse treatment planning system and operates on a completely electronic charting system using EPIC and ARIA.
The educational programs include accredited Radiation Oncology Residency, CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics Residency, CAMPEP-accredited graduate program in Medical Physics and a new MS in Medical Radiation Dosimetry programs.
The successful candidate should hold a Ph.D. in physics, engineering, medical physics or related field and be ABR (or equivalent) certified or eligible. Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor level faculty appointments are available for qualified candidates. To be eligible for an Associate Professor / Professor level position, a substantial clinical experience and research track record in the field of Medical Physics is required. The salary and level of the position are commensurate with the length, breadth, and depth of experience.
The ideal candidate should have strong technical and communication skills along with a commitment to translational research, teaching, and mentoring. Experience in IGRT, SRS/SBRT, MR-Guided RT and proton therapy is highly desirable. Our expectation is that the candidate will be a valuable member of our translational research team and will begin to participate immediately in academic projects. Considerations for supplemental funding will be given for those individuals with NIH/NCI funding.
Interested parties should submit their Curriculum Vitae along with a cover letter, summary of your career, including statement of research, teaching interests, future vision and 3 references to Nesrin Dogan, PhD, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please refer to the position number R100067050 and also submit your application on the University of Miami careers website at https://umiami.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/en-US/UMFaculty/details/Assistant-Professor-of-Clinical---Radiation-Oncology---Medical-Physics_R100067050?q=R100067050
