Are you interested in a sabbatical for a year in Sydney, Australia?

2. december 2013 - Klaus Seiersen

In a national initiative linking academic medical physics departments in Australian universities to hospital departments, a number of posts have been developed to be employed in a university, but to be largely working in a partner hospital on translational research.

Sydney university has one such agreement for two years with a linked pair of hospitals; one of which has Varian linacs and Eclipse TPS and the other Elekta and Pinnacle.

This post has been filled for its first year with a UK physicist who will return to his home base in February 2014, so there is an opening for the follow-on year. This will be at lecturer level in Sydney University and the ideal candidate will be a medical physicist with a PhD and with research and clinical experience in any combination of  IGRT, SBRT, FFF, 4D, adaptive, deformable registration.

The aim would be to also develop on-going collaboration between the centres in Sydney, the UK centre involved and the home centre of the appointee.  Before beginning a formal recruitment process, I am inviting informal expressions of interest to discuss the possibilities.

Although the first person in post leaves in February and ideally we'd like to have the follow-on person in place as soon as possible, we are flexible on a start date.

If anyone is interested, please contact David Thwaites, Director, Institute of Medical Physics, University of Sydney,
