Strong research collaborations exist with Radiology faculty in image analysis, radiomics, image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), CT technique development for IGRT, and functional and anatomic imaging (clinical and preclinical). The Department has an extensive cancer biology research program, and collaboration between radiology, physics and biology researchers is encouraged. The Department has a strong research interest in image guidance, treatment technique development, dosimetry, treatment planning, quality assurance, image-based treatment assessment, AI, machine learning, deep learning, and radiomics to improve clinical efficiency and workflow as well as research to improve therapeutic index.


Prior to the start of employment, qualified applicants must possess: 1) a doctoral degree in physics or a closely related field such as nuclear engineering and 2) American Board of Radiology board certification eligibility in therapeutic medical physics.


We especially welcome applicants with strong computational background and experience in big data analysis, AI, machine learning/deep learning, and radiomics.
