Openings

Multiple positions for graduate students, visiting graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting postdoctoral scholars are immediately available in our Lab for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in field of medical physics. Our mission is to innovate, develop, and apply innovative technologies to empower radiation therapy to image and treat cancers more precisely and effectively.

Postdocs and students in our lab are also eligible to enroll into our CAMPEP-accredited didactic medical physics certificate program for free, whose curriculum covers the essential medical physics courses for individuals to enter the medical physics residency to become a professional medical physicist in US.
