The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a leading academic institution with an international reputation for basic, translational, and cross-disciplinary research. It is located in the heart of one of the country's most livable cities. The Department of Medical Physics is the oldest and largest medical physics PhD program in the country, with an unparalleled network of research infrastructure joint with partners.
The Department of Medical Physics is seeking new faculty at the Assistant Professor level with research focused on the invention or discovery and translation of technological aspects of imaging or therapy in medicine. The department has strengths in most aspects of current Medical Physics and seeks those who would complement existing faculty research areas or build out research in new areas that expand the future horizons of the field. We seek applicants with a track record of creativity and outstanding research accomplishments, who have demonstrated potential for competitive extramural funding. The ideal candidate would exhibit a commitment to mentoring graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows. The successful candidate will join the largest medical physics graduate program in the country and be involved in the graduate teaching mission of the School of Medicine and Public Health.
Active involvement with other aspects of the campus is expected, such as the Departments of Radiology and Human Oncology, the Carbone Cancer Center, the Waisman Center, and many others. The institution houses a NIST Accredited Dosimetry Calibration Laboratory, an extensive small animal imaging and irradiation facility, a DOE-sponsored cyclotron radionuclide production facility, a set of GE-sponsored photon-counting CT, CT/PET, MR/PET, and extensive MRI facilities. There are additionally major research resources in radiotherapy with both TrueBeam and FLASH Mobetron linacs, interventional x-ray fluoroscopy and cone-beam CT, mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis, molecular therapeutics, magnetic resonance, theranostics, optical imaging, ultrasound, biomagnetism, and nanotechnology. There is ongoing collaboration with major imaging and therapy companies, including a UW Health major expansion with clinical proton therapy and radioparticle therapy treatments.
The position provides a stable 12-month salary with both salary and cost recovery research incentives, combined expected half-course teaching load within our graduate program. Active engagement within our large PhD program is expected as a supervisor and mentor.
