The Nuclear & Radiological Engineering and Medical Physics (NRE/MP) Programs at Georgia Tech invite applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the levels of Assistant and Associate Professor. Of particular interest are applicants interested in teaching and developing research programs in Medical Physics (MP). The MP Program at Georgia Institute of Technology is CAMPEP-accredited, and it offers both MS and Ph.D. degrees. We seek an outstanding individual who has the desire and capacity to build a research program in areas including medical imaging, algorithm development for tomographic reconstruction, application of imaging for radiation therapy targeting, and advanced radiation therapy planning are encouraged to apply. 

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS: Doctoral degree in medical physics, nuclear engineering or a related engineering or physical science area.  Candidate must be able to complete laboratory training, a background check, and drug testing.  Candidate must have experience with research and practice of medical physics.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:  Experience with teaching courses in medical physics.  Experience with clinical medical physics studies.  Experience in the handling and processing of radioactive materials.  Previous training or education in fundamentals of radiation interactions.    Proposal writing experience.

Those applying for Associate Professor level position should have established records in research that demonstrates nationally and internationally recognized expertise. Industrial experience is desirable, but not required. The position requires a balance of undergraduate teaching, graduate teaching, and research.

The NRE Program at Georgia Tech offers the BS, MS, and PhD degrees in NRE and the MP Program offers the MS degree in MP and the PhD degree as an option under NRE.
