Department Name


Physics and Engineering - London Regional Cancer Program

The London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP) is inviting applications for one full time Medical Physicist to enhance our radiation oncology service.  The LRCP is committed to providing excellent clinical service, leadership in oncology research, and education in radiation oncology, radiation therapy and medical physics.  The LRCP is a state-of-the-art facility treating approximately 4000 patients per year featuring seven Varian TrueBeam linear accelerators, two with HD-MLC and two VisionRT AlignRT systems, one Varian IX, ARIA record and verify, one Accuray Tomotherapy treatment machine, and one XStrahl Orthovoltage unit. We will be installing our first Varian Ethos linear accelerator in the Fall 2024. Our primary treatment planning is Varian Eclipse, with access to RaySearch Raystation. CT Simulation is performed using two Canon Large Bore Exceed CT Scanners (first in North America), with access to Diagnostic MR and PET/CT for multi-modality simulation.  The LRCP also features a very active and progressive brachytherapy program using a Varian GammaMed Plus HDR afterloader for gynecological cancers and prostate and iodine-125 LDR implants for prostate.  Current areas of research include but are not restricted to: IMRT/VMAT optimization, adaptive radiotherapy, stereotactic radiotherapy/surgery, motion management, surface guided radiotherapy, and brachytherapy. The successful candidate will join a dynamic group of 15 experienced Medical Physicists, 13 Medical Dosimetrists, and a strong technical support group of 5 Electronics Technologists, 3 Medical Physics Associates, an IT Administrator, and a Physics Software Technical Specialist.  The candidate will be expected to participate in all aspects of clinical physics service as well as teaching, and research and development.  The candidate will be considered for an academic position at the nearby Western University in the Departments of Oncology and Medical Biophysics providing teaching opportunities at the undergraduate and graduate level.  In addition, the LRCP houses a CAMPEP accredited Medical Physics Residency training 3 residents, a Radiation Oncology residency program with 10 residents and participates in the education of the Radiation Therapy Program through the Michener Institute or Mohawk.  Overall, the LRCP provides an ideal environment for Medical Physicists to develop both clinically and academically, and to integrate into an outstanding team of professionals collectively providing evidence-based care to oncology patients.
