Radiology - Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinical Physicist 087
Categories: Faculty / Physician
Full/Part Time/PRN: Full-Time
The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Department of Radiology, Dallas, is seeking a clinical MRI physicist to oversee QA, annual testing, acceptance testing, site planning, accreditation submission and all other physics services necessary to support clinical scanners. This position is expected to be filled at the Assistant Professor level, but the academic rank offered will be commensurate with experience. The candidate should hold a PhD in Physics, Imaging Science, Medical Physics or a related field. Board certification in either MRI or Diagnostic Physics would be preferred. Qualification and clinical work history in general diagnostic physics or mammography will be considered additional desirable qualifications. The successful candidate will join the Diagnostic Medical Physics Division, a team of 6 medical physicists and two MRI scientists. This is a clinical position, but some opportunities for clinically-oriented research will be present.
The Clinical Medical Physics Division supports Magnetic Resonance Imaging in two major hospitals (a University hospital and a county hospital) and their associated clinics. The hospitals are new, having been completed within the last three years. Consequently, most MRI equipment is new and close to state-of-the-art. Equipment includes scanners from GE, Philips, and Siemens. The Division provides Quality Assurance and facility design services to all hospitals, supports compliance efforts, and assists clinical research activities.
