The Division of Medical Physics and Biophysics within the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA is currently recruiting multiple post-doctoral fellows to participate in newly funded research projects involving MRI guided adaptive radiation therapy, artificial intelligence 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, signal/image processing and/or machine learning is preferred. Research will include MRI compatible device development, data analysis, and neural 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 post-doctoral 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 may 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.
The Division of Medical Physics and Biophysics in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School is a dynamic group of 20 faculty members, 20 clinical physicists and dosimetrists and 25+ postdocs, residents and graduate students. We currently support 13 linear accelerators, 6 CT simulators and a full brachytherapy (LDR and HDR) program. Ongoing research projects in the department include image-guided radiotherapy, radiomics, MR-guided RT, adaptive radiotherapy, molecular biophysics, therapeutic biomaterials, and pre-clinical radiation oncology.
