Applicants are sought for multiple postdoctoral scholar positions in the field of medical physics, in the Advanced Imaging and Informatics for Radiation Therapy (AIRT) Lab of University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas (UTSW). The related research will employ iterative image (CT/MR) reconstruction, registration, and machine learning/deep learning techniques to carry out real-time tomographic imaging for advanced radiation therapy. A Ph.D. in physics, biomedical engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, or related disciplines is preferred. Strong programming skill is essential. Experience in the following is preferred: programming in Matlab/Python/C/C++ and image processing. Knowledge in machine/deep learning and high-performance computing is a plus while not required. NO previous background in medical physics is required. The candidate should demonstrate excellent written and communication skills.
The postdoctoral scholars are also eligible to enroll into our CAMPEP-accredited didactic medical physics certificate program with a tuition waiver, whose curriculum covers the essential medical physics courses for individuals to enter the medical physics residency to become a professional medical physicist in the US.
Additional Salary Information: Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the applicant’s experience and the NIH guideline (https://www.niaid.nih.gov/grants-contracts/salary-cap-stipends).
