Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences 

The University of Wollongong (UOW) is an exceptional place to combine an outstanding lifestyle with an extremely stimulating workplace environment for research and study.  

The School of Physics is a research intensive and innovative School which greatly values research and teaching.  The Centre for Medical Radiation Physics (CMRP) is an integral part of the School of Physics and is a recognised research strength of the UOW.  

The position has been established to carry out research in the field of radiation therapy dosimetry development; particularly radiation dosimeters that can be used in MRI guided external beam radiotherapy (i.e. MRI-linac). The position is supported by a Cancer Council NSW project grant.  

This position is expected to work on the development of dosimeters for use in MRI-linac. Your ability to work in a multidisciplinary team, together with a strong publication record in high-impact journals and previous research in related fields will be highly regarded.  You will also be involved with the MRP teaching program at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Post-Doctoral Fellow is expected to be part of the R&D program on the innovative MR guided dosimeter project, a real-time in-vivo Quality Assurance system for dose verification in MRI-guided Linacs. This research will result in the development of a high resolution silicon diode array dosimetry verification system and protocol for its use, working towards pre-clinical experiments using the system for pre patient verification on the MRI linac prototype at Ingham (Sydney).  

You will be prompted to respond to the selection criteria as part of the online application process, based on the position description below. You will be able to save your application at any time and submit at a later date if required, you will only be able to do this before the closing date of the position.  

For further information about this position, please contact Professor Peter Metcalfe on +61 2 4221 5296 or Metcalfe@uow.edu.au  

The University plan seeks to increase the diversity of the workforce and the representation of women in areas they have been traditionally under-represented. Consistent with this, the University is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medical (STEMM) disciplines and encourages suitably qualified candidates to apply.
