Engineering and Technology: Nuclear, Medical Physics: Health Physics/Radiation Safety, Medical Physics: Nuclear Medicine
Georgia Institute of Technology is accepting applications for one tenure-track faculty position in Medical Physics to teach courses, advise students and conduct research within the Nuclear and Radiological Engineering/Medical Physics (NRE/MP) Program within the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia. The MP Program at Georgia Institute of Technology is CAMPEP-accredited, and it offers both MS and Ph.D. degrees. We seek an outstanding individual who has the desire and capacity to build a research program in areas including medical imaging, algorithm development for tomographic reconstruction, application of imaging for radiation therapy targeting, and advanced radiation therapy planning are encouraged to apply. This position is expected to be at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.
REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS: Doctoral degree in medical physics, nuclear engineering or a related engineering or physical science area. Candidate must be able to complete laboratory training, a background check, and drug testing. Candidate must have experience with research and practice of medical physics.
PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: Experience with teaching courses in medical physics. Experience with clinical medical physics studies. Experience in the handling and processing of radioactive materials. Previous training or education in fundamentals of radiation interactions. Proposal writing experience.
The Nuclear & Radiological Engineering (NRE) and Medical Physics (MP) programs are an integral part of the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. These programs offer one undergraduate degree, BSNRE, and three graduate degrees, MSNE, MSMP, and Ph.D.-NRE. Currently, there are thirteen academic faculty leading the programs, all on tenure track. ...The School of Nuclear Engineering was established in 1962 and celebrated 50 years in 2012. In 1984, the School of Nuclear Engineering merged with the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, and in 1997, the undergraduate degree changed from BSNE to BSNRE to reflect the addition of radiological engineering courses in the curriculum. Then, in 2004, students were admitted to the Medical Physics program. Today, Georgia Tech's Nuclear Engineering graduate program is ranked 5th in the nation, according to the US News & World Report.
