The Department of Radiation Oncology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Assistant Professor position in the non-tenure academic clinician track. Expertise is required in the specific area of artificial intelligence applications, machine learning algorithms, automation, or advanced imaging. Demonstration of clinical translation of research/new technology is essential. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree. ABR board eligibility in therapeutic radiological physics is required, and ABR board certification is preferred or expected within the first two years.

Teaching responsibilities may include the teaching and training of radiation oncology residents, medical physics residents, medical physics graduate students, etc.

Clinical responsibilities may include supporting a full range of clinical physics activities, such as linac-based radiation therapy, brachytherapy, proton therapy, etc. at the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine.

The Radiation Oncology clinic, located in the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine, includes five Varian linacs (3 Truebeams, 2 Halcyons one of which has HyperSight), a Varian HDR unit, two Siemens dual-energy CT simulators, a Siemens wide-bore MRI unit, and a Philips wide bore PET/CT unit. We provide a full range of radiation oncology services (IMRT, brachytherapy, TBI, SRS, and SBRT) and have an active development program in all aspects of radiotherapy physics. We are also active in photodynamic therapy research. The clinic has a hub-and-spoke model for deploying new clinical technologies across 16 network sites. The Roberts Proton Therapy Center opened in 2009 and is integrated with the photon therapy clinic. It houses the largest proton therapy facility in the USA, comprising four gantry treatment rooms, one fixed beam room, and a dedicated research room. The existing facility has been fully upgraded to the latest pencil beam scanning technology with in-room CBCT and motion management capabilities. Two new single-room proton treatment centers are located at Penn Network facilities.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
