The Department of Medical Physics at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is looking for a full-time, postdoctoral researcher with expertise in biomedical imaging and image processing. The position involves research in algorithms to determine delivered dose to organs from radiation treatments. MSKCC has an active research program to develop imaging applications that can inform and improve radiation oncology treatment decisions.
This is a full-time two-year appointment. Selected candidates will have an option to enroll in a two-year CAMPEP-Accredited Residency Program at MSKCC in either Therapeutic Medical Physics or Medical Imaging Physics following the completion of the postdoctoral research fellowship. Admission to the residency program is contingent on satisfactory completion of all aspects of postdoctoral research and an appropriate background in advanced physics.
Applicants should have good experimental and image analysis skills and a strong background in applications-oriented computer programming. Proficiency in C++/C#, .NET, and visualization tools including VTK is highly desirable. Knowledge in radiation oncology physics and deep learning methods applied to medical images is a plus. The research will focus on developing and validating automatic registration and segmentation algorithms of cone-beam CT images for image-guided radiation treatment. The candidate will work closely with medical physicists and radiation oncologists in developing the methods applicable to pancreatic cancer radiation therapy.
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over forty faculty physicists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to diagnosis and therapy of cancer. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and is a recognized world leader in clinical cancer care and research.
Interested candidates should send a resume and list of three references by e-mail to:
