Faculty position in Radiological Physics

A tenure track faculty-level (Instructor, Assistant or Associate Prof) position is available in the Radiological Physics Division of the Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science. A comprehensive start-up package that includes space and funding support will be provided.

The successful candidate will be encouraged to expand current Division activities by developing their own grant-funded program. A strong interest and dedication to engaging in diverse areas of medical physics-related research in a highly multidisciplinary and collaborative environment is essential. The candidate will also have the opportunity to engage in research utilizing the world class instrumentation resources available at Hopkins, including, most recently, MRI/PET and MALDI mass spectroscopic imaging instrumentation.

Faculty within the Radiological Physics Division (RPD) in Radiology are engaged in: Preclinical studies to optimize radiopharmaceutical therapy (RPT) with alpha particle emitters. Clinical trials to evaluate treatment planning for combination external-beam radiotherapy and RPT. Imaging, including SPECT quantification of Ra-223 and other alpha-emitters, optimization of pediatric nuclear medicine, CT related to spectral photon counting, cardiac and acute ischemia detection.  Dosimetry for alpha-emitter RPT and ongoing dose-response evaluations and radiobiological modeling. Radiation safety identifying strategies that better communicate radiation doses and risks with patients and staff.

The Division is also in the process of establishing Masters, Ph.D. and certificate training programs in medical physics as well as a clinical physics support service to assure that all imaging equipment across the various Hopkins sites meet regulatory and Hopkins quality standards.

We believe that diversity in the work environment, especially a research environment, increases creativity, leads to greater productivity and helps make coming to work a pleasure. For these reasons, the Radiological Physics Division at Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine does not discriminate on the basis of: race, color, national origin, immigration status, ethnicity, age, disability, religion, sex, gender, pregnancy, military status, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, and other legally protected characteristics.
