Hybrid Therapy Medical Physicist position in Brooklyn, NY

Due to a forthcoming retirement, we seek a Therapy Medical Physicist to join our Radiation Oncology Department in a hybrid role at New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. With the support of Weill Cornell Medicine, our department merges the personalized care of a community practice with the resources and experience found in an academic environment.

The physics team, when fully staffed, includes 3 full-time physicists, 2 per diem physicists, and 3 dosimetrists. There are 2 full-time physicians and 2 part-time physicians. Together, we treat 40-60 patients daily on Varian TB and iX linacs. Our department treats a wide range of sites and maintains busy SRS, SBRT, and HDR programs, in addition to LDR and radiopharmaceutical treatments. We are proud to host an ACGME-accredited Radiation Oncology residency program with 4 resident physicians and to serve as a clinical training site for the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse’s dosimetrist program. The department is also ACR accredited.

Our department is equipped with Varian Aria, Eclipse, and Velocity, complemented by Radformation ClearCheck, ClearCalc, AutoContour, QuickCode, and Ezfluence. Our QA equipment includes Varian portal dosimetry, Sun Nuclear Mapcheck3, Sun Nuclear IC profiler with quad wedges, Sun Nuclear 1D tank, and IBA BluePhantom2. We are supported by a dedicated radiation oncology-specific IT team within New York Presbyterian.

Exciting developments are on the horizon for our growing department, including upgrading our CT simulator to a Siemens 128-slice large bore SOMATOM go.UP, updating Eclipse to v18, integrating Radformation RadMachine into our QA, and in the next 1-2 years, replacing the Varian iX linac with a Varian Ethos and our Varian GammaMed HDR with Varian Bravos HDR.

We seek a friendly, team-oriented candidate with a strong clinical background, an interest in teaching physics to radiation oncology residents, a master’s or doctorate degree, and who is board-certified/eligible. This hybrid role offers exceptional pay ($237,500-$275,000/annually) and benefits as a New York Presbyterian employee, including funding for professional society meetings. We are committed to a work-life balance.

The hospital is located in the vibrant, safe, and welcoming Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope, amidst tree-lined streets, historic brownstones, charming shops, and exceptional restaurants. It is also just a block from Prospect Park – 526 acres of scenic beauty for relaxation and recreation. We are just a short ride away from the culture, excitement, and experiences that Manhattan and New York City’s other boroughs offer.  For those who crave more nature, the mountains, beaches, forests, and farmland are all within a one-to-two-hour drive from New York City.

To apply, or for further information about joining the friendly, skilled, and dedicated team, please email Nik Sheth directly.
