A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available for a joint appointment at Harvard Medical School, the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Division of Medical Physics and Biophysics. The successful applicant will be working on a funded project with an established industry partner to develop and translate novel imaging technology into clinical treatment scenarios. Fellows will also be afforded the opportunity to participate in clinical training and the department’s CAMPEP-approved certificate program.

The position will lead the development, simulation, and optimization of novel imaging processes to be implemented in online adaptive therapy treatments. This will involve both use and development of in-house computational applications as well as experimental measurements and data analysis. The successful candidate will be entering a highly collaborative environment, with frequent internal and industrial interfacing opportunities. The candidate will be expected to contribute to the scientific body of knowledge, including preparation of conference presentations and manuscripts.

Candidates from broad backgrounds are invited to apply, with PhD (or equivalent degree) in physics, astronomy, computer science, medical physics, imaging science, engineering, or related fields given preference. Highly developed communication skills - including, but not limited to written and oral delivery of scientific information and the ability to work well within a team structure - and considerable programming experience are both prerequisites. Experience with imaging physics and processing techniques, image reconstruction, and familiarity with Monte Carlo simulations are preferred. The successful candidate will be self-motivated and able to independently guide a research project.
