Job Description


Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is seeking board certified applicants with broad experience in external beam radiation therapy for a faculty position in the Division of Medical Physics, Department of Radiation Oncology.

Candidates will have a track record that demonstrates academic and clinical productivity in medical physics, including clinical practice and project management, research achievement and educational excellence. The incumbent must have a broad clinical skill set. The physics faculty all participate in the clinical practice as well as the medical physics educational programs (Ph.D. and residency) through the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. The Medical Physics Division is noted for research in image guided and image based radiation therapy, treatment dosimetry and verification, novel treatment technologies and advances in brachytherapy, Monte Carlo techniques, particle beam therapy and informatics.

Equipment in the Department includes 12 Varian Truebeam/EX linacs, a Gamma Knife Perfexion, GE and Siemens CT simulators with wide bore and 4D capability, a 3T MRI, two VariSource HDR afterloaders, Eclipse, ARIA and a full complement of dosimetry and detector systems for photon, proton and brachytherapy. Treatment procedures include all conventional radiation therapy plus specials that include IORT, TBI, TSET, HDR, SRS, SBRT, BH, Orthovoltage and LDR. The proton center contains a Hitachi, synchrotronbased 4 halfgantry plus single fixed beam treatment system, expected to treat over 1200 patients per year within an approximately 100,000 square foot facility adjacent to our existing radiation oncology department. The proton beam is 100% spot scanning with orthogonal kVbased imaging, Siemens CTonrails and VisionRT for localization and verification.

The Medical Physics Division currently has 19 faculty medical physicists, 26 staff medical physicists, 9 residents/fellows, 3 medical physicist assistants, 6 post-doctoral fellows, engineers and IT support. The Division is a seasoned and cohesive team responsible for all aspects of therapy physics in support of clinical practice, education and research in radiation oncology in Rochester and at 5 satellite facilities.
