Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) has an immediate opening within the Radiotherapy Physics Service of the Department of Medical Physics for an M.S. level physicist to support program growth in medical physics and radiation oncology. This position is located at MSK Monmouth in Middletown, NJ and requires limited travel to other MSK facilities.
MSK is one of the worlds premier cancer centers, committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The blending of research with patient care is at the heart of everything we do. The institution is a comprehensive cancer center whose purposes are the treatment and control of cancer, the advancement of biomedical knowledge through laboratory and clinical research, and the training of scientists, physicians and other health care workers. The MSK radiotherapy program is spread across eight facilities in Manhattan, Westchester County, Long island, and New Jersey and treats approximately 650 patients per day. Resources include twenty-nine linear accelerators, one MR-Linac, five HDR units, and state-of-the-art inter- and intra-fractional imaging and motion management capabilities. Enterprise-wide, the Radiotherapy Physics Service is staffed with over 100 physicists and planners providing a rich, stimulating work environment.
The Department of Medical Physics has a large, cutting-edge program in all aspects of radiation oncology physics that seeks to improve the clinical effectiveness of radiation therapy in partnership with radiation oncologists, radiologists and other medical professionals. Programs in radiation therapy research and development include: improved treatment planning optimization algorithms, automation in planning, delivery and QA of radiotherapy, integration of MR and PET imaging into radiotherapy decision making and treatment planning, 4D imaging and motion management, and the development of informatics- based and adaptive radiotherapy processes ( www.mskcc.org/departments/medical-physics ).
Knowledgeable about business and the marketplace and able to apply this knowledge to advance the organization's goals.
Able to work effectively in an environment notable for complex, sometimes contradictory information.
Consistently achieving results, even under tough circumstances.
Adept at creating partnerships and working collaboratively with others to meet shared objectives and goals
Under supervision of a faculty-level physicist, the project physicist will contribute to the development of new methods for planning, imaging, or delivery of radiotherapy, associated operational procedures for clinical implementation and delivery, and associated enterprise-wide training for staff and students
Complete routine clinical physics QA including chart checks and linac quality assurance
A minimum of 2 years of experience, ABR and NYS medical physics license eligibility are required. Ph.D. level candidates will not be considered.
The ability to problem solve and resolve clinical or machine related issues, as well as perform mathematical calculations and strong understanding of the principles of physics is required.
A knowledge of computers and the ability to calibrate physical standards for radiation dosimetry is essential#LI-POST
