James M. Balter, Ph.D.

Professor and Physics Division co-director

Department of Radiation Oncology

University of Michigan Health System

1500 E. Medical Center Drive, UH-B2C432

Ann Arbor, MI 48109-5010

Job Summary

The Physics Division of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Michigan Medicine is currently recruiting a Medical Physicist for a clinical faculty position.

While competency and service in all areas of radiation oncology physics is expected, we are seeking an individual who will be capable of assuming a shared leadership role in the areas of:  machine calibration and equipment quality assurance (accelerators, simulators, CT and MRI simulators, and nuclear medicine imagers), HDR brachytherapy and special procedures (such as stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), total body irradiation (TBI), total skin electron treatment (TSET), and trans-arterial radio embolization (TARE)).  Other ongoing areas of clinical service could include IGRT, SBRT, and treatment planning.


The selected applicant will participate in a general clinical physics practice and provide didactic and practical teaching and training for physics and medical residents, therapists and therapist students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and other departmental staff.  A successful candidate should also participate in ongoing and/or new translational research and development initiatives.  Current research themes include, but are not limited to: improving our ability to individualize radiation therapy, rather than relying solely on population based approaches; development of quantitative imaging approaches for nuclear medicine, MRI and CT; use of state of the art bioinformatics techniques to unify large and disparate data sets to develop realistic multiparameter models of tumor response and normal tissue injury; implementation of “big data” techniques that will permit us to continuously learn and improve from our own experience; advancing treatment planning optimization techniques; and improving our approaches toward safety and quality.

Required Qualifications*

Ph.D. or equivalent in Physics, Medical Physics, or related field with completion of a CAMPEP approved residency training program in Radiation Oncology Physics, ideally with 3 or more years of clinical experience post training.  Board Certified or Board eligible by the American Board of Radiology. Evidence of clinical competence and didactic teaching is also expected.

Desired Qualifications*

Significant aptitudes for the use of: treatment delivery, calibration and quality assurance equipment; anatomic and physiological imaging devices; computerized treatment planning; patient management and safety.  Clinical research as evidenced by a previous record of publications in scientific journals. 

Underfill Statement

This position is posted as Clinical Assistant Professor/Clinical Associate Professor/Clinical Professor. The rank of the selected candidate will depend upon the candidate’s qualifications
