Advancing Science and Technology to Transform Care

Department of Medical Physics Careers

The Department of Medical Physics at Memorial Sloan Kettering advances the science and technology of radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, and radiology imaging to enhance patient care.

Our medical physicists, physical scientists, biomedical engineers and other specialists are developing personalized ways to predict cancer risk, improve radiotherapy, and ensure the safe use of radiation by patients and staff.

Our department has a long history of innovation. We were the first institution to implement intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), now a standard treatment approach around the world.

Our physicists and physicians also continue to develop image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), advanced brachytherapy (implanted isotope) methods, quantitative imaging with positron emission tomography (PET) nuclear imaging, and a range of new applications for MRI.

Bring your skills to MSK, where you can help us leverage our technology and expertise to create new techniques for detecting and fighting cancer.
