Experienced medical physicist in radiation oncology

Department of Oncology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark

We are looking for a skilled and motivated medical physicist to join our team at Rigshospitalet’s Department of Oncology, section of radiotherapy. We perform more than 50,000 image-guided radiotherapy fractions annually to 4,000 patients. We use state-of-the-art equipment including TrueBeam, Ethos and Halcyon units by Varian Medical Systems and in addition a ViewRay MRIdian MR linear accelerator. The department also has the responsibility for 2 CT scanners and a 3 Tesla Vida MRI scanner from Siemens plus two brachytherapy suites.

Department of Oncology provide radiotherapy services for a large number of common cancer diseases but also serves as a highly specialized cancer center and therefore maintains and develops radiotherapy with less common techniques, such as total body irradiation and total skin irradiation. The level of ambition is extremely high both in regard to radiotherapy planning and treatment delivery. Research and development are highly prioritized and it is the expectation that we continue to provide and develop radiotherapy at the highest international level to the benefit of our patients. We also provide on-site and remote training to both national and international pre- and postgraduate participants. The department takes an active part in the Danish Center for Particle Therapy as one of the top referrers and collaborates with shared physics, medical and dose planning staff.

Your main role will be in the daily clinical service at our institution, joining the team of physicists to provide patient care at the highest level of precision and safety. To this end you will be expected to also be part of a close and constructive interdisciplinary collaboration. Research and development are integral parts of the clinical service at our institution, so you will be expected to (and have the opportunity to) collaborate with the research teams. This will in particular be related to introduction of new technologies and supporting clinical trials.

Staff and technical equipment You will be joining a group comprised of 17 physicist, 9 dose planners, 5 service engineers and 2 IT technicians – some with part time clinical positions, e.g. due to matching part time research fellowships.

The main delivery platform currently consists of six TrueBeam linear accelerators, two Ethos, one Halcyon 3.0 and a ViewRay MRIdian MR-linear accelerator plus three Novalis Tx linear accelerators with limited usage. Finally, we have two Elekta afterloaders for brachytherapy. The commissioning of the last of 9 newly acquired accelerators was completed in November 2020. Therefore, the coming years will be focused on implementing optimal treatments on the new delivery platforms. The first adaptive radiotherapy fraction on the Ethos system was delivered in January 2021 and the first adaptive treatment on MRIdian was delivered Feb 5 2021. A focus area in the coming years will be a wider adoption of the adaptive techniques as a natural successor to the 50,000 annual image guided radiotherapy fractions delivered at our institutions.

Qualifications

  • Qualified medical physicist with certification from the national board of health (SIS) or equivalent.
    • We currently have three trainee physicists in the staff. Unfortunately, we cannot offer further trainee positions at present.
  • A keen desire to use your skills as medical physicist to provide optimal care to every patient and support to the medical and frontline treatment staff.
  • Good collaboration skills and friendly personality.
  • It is an advantage to have experience with Varian, ViewRay, ARIA/Eclipse or any other parts of our equipment.
  • It is an advantage, but not a prerequisite, if you speak either Danish, Norwegian or Swedish.
Further information Based on background education and seniority, your salary, pension and terms of employment will be settled in accordance with the existing agreement between the Danish Regions (Danske Regioner) and the relevant professional organization
