The Department of Radiation Oncology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in the Division of Medical Physics. Individuals with a strong interest in the application of computational tools, data analysis and physics principles in radiation medicine are encouraged to apply.
This fellowship offers individualized research opportunities in the area of machine learning as it applies to analysis and prediction of patient outcomes for radiation therapy and radiation dose distributions. The selected individual will join a dynamic and highly productive team and is expected to conduct research leading to peer-reviewed publications and presentations at national and international meetings under the guidance of our faculty. Opportunities to take classes which are a prerequisite for Medical Physics residencies will be offered.
Applicants should have a doctoral degree in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering or a related field, with a proven background in data analysis and preferably in Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence as well. They should have excellent quantitative, written, and verbal skills and evidence of research scholarship.
