Do you have strong physics and computer skills, with an interest in applying your abilities to medicine? Our residency program might be the right move for you. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is one of the worlds premier cancer centers, committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. We are currently recruiting for two openings in our combined four-year research/residency in Therapeutic Medical Physics in the Department of Medical Physics. Positions are available for August/September 2021 and December 2021/January 2022.
Our MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in Therapeutic Medical Physics involves two years of dedicated research with the opportunity to obtain a CAMPEP Medical Physics certificate, followed by two years of training in all aspects of clinical radiation therapy. Minimum requirements for admission to the program include: an earned doctorate in physics, engineering or similar scientific discipline. Additional requirements may be found on our website (linked below). This position may be an excellent opportunity you to transition your technical skills and apply them to exciting opportunities in cancer medicine.
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over seventy faculty physicists and computer scientists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to diagnosis and therapy for cancer. MSKCC 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. Many new programs in radiation therapy research and development are ongoing, including: the development and clinical use of predictive models using machine learning/AI for treatment planning, improved treatment planning optimization algorithms, integration of MR and PET imaging into radiotherapy decision making and treatment planning, 4D imaging and motion management, the use of Deep Learning and AI for image analysis and tissue segmentations, and the development of informatics-based adaptive radiotherapy processes (www.mskcc.or/departments/medical-physics). Medical physics resources include twenty-nine linear accelerators, one combined treatment room-MRI-Linac system, six HDR units, CT, PET/CT and MRI simulators, and state of the art inter- and intra-fractional imaging and motion management capabilities. We also have access to robust high performance and GPU computing. We are also partners with the New York Proton Center, that houses one cyclotron, three rotational gantry treatment rooms, one fixed beam treatment room, one research beam room, PET/CT, two CTs, two MRIs, related clinical support space.
