Medical Physicist (Therapy)


The Division of Medical Physics at The University of Vermont Medical Center is seeking a board-certified or board-eligible therapeutic medical physicist to join our group of 5 therapy physicists, 1 diagnostic imaging physicist, and 1 nuclear medicine physicist/RSO. This position will provide clinical service to the Division of Radiation Oncology and will support the teaching and research mission of the institution.

The Medical Center is located on the shore of Lake Champlain with beautiful views of the Adirondacks to the west and the Green Mountains a few miles to the east. Voted as one of the best places to live in Outside Magazine, outdoor activities abound year round. There are vibrant food and music scenes as well as good schools and social services. Carrying the distinction of having the smallest largest city (Burlington, approximately 40,000) of any state, Vermont has more to offer than might be suggested by its size.

Radiation Oncology at the UVMMC occupies a seven year old LEED certified space with an abundance of natural light. Clinical support includes 6 attending physicians, 5 physicists, 4 dosimetrists, and 2 service engineers. Three modern Elekta linear accelerators are equipped with on-board kV/CBCT, surface-guided imaging, robotic couch, 3D ultrasound for breast and prostate imaging, GammaMed HDR unit, and a Philips Big Bore CT simulator. Other software and equipment include Mosaiq R&V, Pinnacle TPS, BrainLAB iPlan, Varian BrachyVision, Velocity, Radcalc, RIT, ArcCheck, Profiler, QA3, IBA tank, CIRS lung phantom, RANDO phantoms, and a full complement of phantoms and chambers for routine QA. There are active programs in SRS, SABR/SBRT, GYN HDR, prostate LDR, and Y-90 microspheres.

The UVMMC is part of the University of Vermont Health Network, a network of 6 hospitals in Vermont and northern New York. Currently, our group provides physics services to the University Medical Center in Burlington and to Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin. This position may require travel to our satellite location (40 miles, highway) approximately 1-2 days per month.

The Division of Medical Physics provides educational and research support to the radiology residency program, the cardiology fellowship program, and the Department of Medical Laboratory and Radiation Sciences. Faculty physicists currently teach 3 semester-long undergraduate classes. Addition of a medical physics residency program is currently also under consideration. The expectation is that this position will contribute the educational and research activities of the group, though the primary focus will be clinical. The successful candidate will be recommended for a faculty appointment in the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine at a rank commensurate with academic record and education.

Please apply for this position online. Please note cover letter and CV may need to be combined into a single document for uploading to the HR website. In addition to the online application (required), you may also submit cover letter and CV to
