An opening is now available for a research appointment in the Department of Medical Physics at the postdoctoral level for individuals interested in medical physics research. The two-year research project entails the development of a new biological model of lung cancer that incorporates imaging features, utilizing this model to predict tumor resistance, and guiding the optimization of adaptive radiotherapy. Applicants should have a strong background on statistical modeling, medical image analysis and/or optimization algorithms. Programming skills are required. Experience with Matlab or C/C# is desirable. While a strong background in medical physics is preferred, all physics and engineering backgrounds will be considered. Experience with image registration, treatment planning and radiomics is a plus, but not required.
Selected candidates who satisfactorily complete all aspects of the postdoctoral research fellowship will be given preferential admission to the two-year MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in Imaging or Therapeutic Medical Physics, which would lead to a career in medical physics.
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over forty faculty physicists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to diagnosis and therapy for cancer.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and is recognized as a world leader in clinical cancer care and research.
Interested candidates should send a resume and list of three references by the end of October, 2016 via e-mail to:
