We are looking for an enthusiastic clinical physicist to join the Radiotherapy Physics group at the Sutton branch of the Royal Marsden Hospital.  This Principal-grade post has particular responsibilities for specialised techniques in radiotherapy planning, but will support all the service provision across the group.

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, commissioning a new CT scanner and introducing advanced techniques such as robust planning. The Radiotherapy Department in Sutton has 7 Elekta linacs (6 Agility and 1 MLCi) and an Elekta Unity MR-Linac. Additional equipment includes EPID portal imaging, in-vivo EPID dosimetry, and Cone Beam CT on all machines.   

The radiotherapy physics group consists of 35 physicists, dosimetrists and engineers and forms a substantial part of the Royal Marsden/Institute of Cancer Research Joint Department of Physics, through which we have many active research collaborations, most notably on the MR-linac which was the first in the UK to treat patients. 

Sutton is pleasantly located on the border of Surrey with excellent transport links to central London and easy access to the countryside.  House prices are a third lower than the London average and schools are excellent.
