Medical Physics: Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology
Multiple postdoctoral research positions are available at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Division of Medical Physics and Biophysics.
Candidates with a PhD, or equivalent, in physics, astronomy, computer science, engineering or a related subject are invited to apply. The successful applicants will participate in NIH or industry funded projects related to image-guided radiation therapy. Fellows can participate in clinical training and the department’s CAMPEP-approved certificate program. No prior experience in medicine or medical physics is required. We are seeking motivated individuals with well-developed communication skills and the desire and talent to tackle technical problems. Significant programming experience is a must; familiarity with image processing and/or reconstruction techniques would be valued highly. An appointment will be made as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School.
Interested individuals should send a cover letter and CV by email to Dr. Ross Berbeco: firstname.lastname@example.org. Three references should be available upon request.
