The Department of Radiation Oncology is seeking highly motivated applicants for a research focused faculty position supporting physics research and academic missions at the Duke University Medical Center. We provide state-of-the-art cancer treatment for a wide variety of tumor types offering a full range of radiation treatment options with modern treatment modalities. The Division of Radiation Physics has a strong partnership with the Duke University Graduate Program (MS and PhD students) and also provides physics teaching for graduate students in medical physics, both medical physics and radiation oncology residents, and medical students from the Duke medical school. We have close collaborations with Diagnostic Radiology, Biomedical Engineering, and other School of Medicine and University departments. Active research programs involve IMRT/IGRT, 3-D dosimetry, oncologic and biological imaging, AI-guided treatment planning, radiomics and deep-learning, modeling of radiation damage for normal tissues and of tumor control using radiation, advanced MR imaging, stereotactic radiosurgery, stereotactic body radiotherapy, and image-guided brachytherapy.

The successful candidate will 1) Maintain active participation (including leadership roles where appropriate) in clinical, translational, and basic research projects with an independent research area to be recognized by peers, regionally and nationally; 2) Participate in original research and actively contribute to publications including as 1st and senior author; 3) Lead and contribute to the application of grant submissions for extramural funding for research; 4) Participate in the education, training, and mentoring of physicians, radiation oncology residents, medical physics residents, medical students, and medical physics graduate students; 5) Conduct teaching in multiple formats and participate in the development, implementation, and administration of curricular/instructional materials and activities; 6) Facilitate the research mission and academic mission through collaborations with clinical trial investigators and translational radiation biology researchers; 7) Participate in and lead institutional, regional, and national organizations, programs, committees, symposiums, education sessions, etc. at AAPM/ASTRO/RRS.

Although the major focus of responsibility will be research, the successful candidate will be assigned a focused and limited clinical role to complement the other academic administrative activities to support the clinical mission. The specific clinical role will be determined by the candidate’s training, experience and interest, and the needs of the department. Qualified candidates should have a Minimum of PhD from a CAMPEP (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Program, Inc.) certified medical physics program OR PhD degree in Physics, Engineering, Biosciences, Radiological Sciences, or related field with certification from a CAMPEP certified program for therapeutic medical physics. Successful completion of a two-year clinical residency training in radiation therapy physics from a CAMPEP certified program or equivalent OR board certification in the field of therapeutic medical physics by American Board of Radiology, or equivalent as defined by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM).

In addition, candidates should have a demonstrated record of innovative original research, publications, and extramural grant funding as well as knowledge and experience using radiation therapy systems and clinical techniques

The position is eligible for tenure and departmental research support with the faculty rank and compensation determined on candidate experience and qualifications. Minority candidates encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should apply on AJO and send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and references to:
