Are you an enthusiastic physicist with experience in Radiotherapy Physics? We are seeking candidates for a permanent position in the Joint Department of Physics at the Sutton branch of the Royal Marsden Hospital.

Applicants should have a good honours degree in physics or a closely related discipline, plus an MSc related to Radiotherapy Physics, and ideally be HCPC registered. Experience of treatment planning and an appreciation of QA and dosimetry are expected.

The Royal Marsden in Sutton has 7 Elekta linacs (5 Agility and 2 MLCi) and an Elekta Unity MR-Linac. Treatment planning is performed using the RayStation treatment planning system, with most treatment sites planned using a VMAT technique. We have established workflows for adaptive radiotherapy (plan of the day), 4DCT, and breathhold techniques. Multimodality imaging (CT, PET-CT, MR) is used for planning of several treatment sites. Recent clinical development work has included expanding adaptive radiotherapy planning, expanding the existing SABR service, and introducing advanced techniques such as robust planning. Additional equipment includes EPID portal imaging, in-vivo EPID dosimetry, and Cone Beam CT.
