Physics Postdoctoral Research Position in Radiation Oncology focused on Light Ion Radiation Therapy
April 13, 2018
Equivalent with NIH/DOE standa
Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology, Physics: Physics
The Department of Radiation Oncology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in the Division of Medical Physics. Individuals with a strong interest in the application of computational tools and particle/nuclear physics principles in radiation medicine and experience in Monte Carlo simulation methods are encouraged to apply.
The 2-year fellowship offers individualized research opportunity in the area of Monte Carlo simulations directly related to the characterization and clinical performance of a future pencil beam scanning light ion therapy facility at Mayo Clinic. The incumbent is expected to conduct research leading to publications and presentations at national/international meetings under the guidance of our faculty. Opportunity to take classes which are a prerequisite for Medical Physics Residencies will be offered.
Requirements Applicants must have a doctoral degree in Physics and demonstrate computer programming and Monte Carlo experience, e.g. Geant4, MCNPX. Excellent quantitative, written and verbal skills and evidence of research scholarship is required.
Contact To apply, please e-mail your current CV, a cover letter with statement of interest, and your earliest date of availability. References will be requested after initial screening.
