Band 7 - Radiotherapy Physicist

An enthusiastic radiotherapy physicist is sought to join a progressive team of 12 Scientists within one of the country’s leading Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC).  Radiation Physics & Radiobiology operates as an integrated Trust-wide department and provides a full range of complex radiotherapy services at both, Charing Cross and Hammersmith Hospitals to a catchment population of 1.3 million in West London.

The major equipment includes six Varian linacs, including two new Truebeams, one dedicated radiotherapy CT unit, HDR brachytherapy and extensive treatment planning systems.  Planning and the Aria patient management systems are networked over both sites.

Over the next year the number of Truebeams systems will double and the Raysearch planning system will be commissioned. 

The department is active in the areas of clinical service, teaching (at M.Sc. level) and research. Staff have a direct involvement with several on-going clinical trials, VMAT & IGRT is in routine clinical use and the use of filter free fields is under development. The Trust has a long history of providing an HDR brachytherapy service and the treatment of intracranial lesions with stereotactic radiotherapy.  This later service is now commissioned through NHSE

The Department of Radiation Physics & Radiobiology has a positive attitude towards CPD and is pro-active in funding training and educational opportunities.  You will have the opportunity to participate in developments of new treatment techniques and the commissioning and evaluation of new equipment and software in line with the 5 year rolling replacement programme.

The successful appointee will be encouraged to match their particular scientific interests with the on-going local activities and to participate in teaching and service-related R&D.

You should possess, or be close to obtaining HCPC Registration.

The Trust encourages all to maintain a good work-life balance with flexible working on offer and extensive sports facilities available on the Charing Cross site including a gym, squash courts and a 25m pool.  Where possible, help with on-site accommodation may be available for a limited period.
