Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Institution: Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School

Location: Boston, USA

Application closes at: Oct 31st, 2019 23:59

The Division of Medical Physics and Biophysics within the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA is currently recruiting multiple postdoctoral fellows to participate in newly funded research projects involving MRI guided adaptive radiation therapy, radiomics for patient outcome modelling, patient motion management, and functional tissue sparing. 

A Ph.D. in Medical Physics, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field is required. We are seeking motivated individuals with well-developed communication skills and the desire and talent to tackle technical problems. MRI physics and/or signal/image processing is preferred. Research will include MRI compatible device development, data analysis, and network training and validation to build clinically impactful models of outcome, motion, disease response and organ function. Previous experience in Medical Physics is not required and our CAMPEP-accredited medical physics certificate program is open to postdoctoral fellows. Research in the division is well funded by federal, industrial and foundation sources and we maintain strong research collaborations with local institutions, including Harvard University, Northeastern University, Boston University, and MIT. Research will be conducted on a recently installed ViewRay MRI-Linac and a Siemens VIDA 3T MRI. An appointment will be made as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School.
