The Medical Physics group plays a unique and important role in supporting the cancer control mandate of CancerCare Manitoba. We work with other departments within CancerCare Manitoba as well as external stakeholders such as the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, the Brandon Regional Health Authority, and the University of Manitoba to support and provide various treatment and diagnostic programs. We have active research and academic programs and support undergraduate, graduate and clinical residency training programs. Our research activities include in vivo patient dosimetry, adaptive radiotherapy, functional magnetic resonance imaging, multi-objective optimization in treatment planning, pediatric x-ray dose monitoring, and novel breast imaging techniques.
Manitoba is a diverse province of over 1.2 million people. The province supports four universities, a large community college and an excellent school system. Manitobans enjoy a true four-season climate. Summers are long and hot; lakes and beaches are plentiful. From November to March, the province becomes a winter wonderland; snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and skating on the rivers and in parks are an enjoyable pastime. Numerous festivals are held throughout the year. Attractive, inexpensive housing can be found in reasonable proximity to the facility, while other costs of living, such as utilities and car insurance tend to be lower in Manitoba than elsewhere in Canada.
This position reports to the Head of the Radiation Oncology Physics Group at CancerCare Manitoba. The successful candidate will provide clinical support to our radiation oncology programs. We are actively growing our research program; therefore, the successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to our research activities. As part of our research and training efforts, we support a CAMPEP-accredited medical physics graduate program offered through the University of Manitoba, and a CAMPEP-accredited medical physics clinical residency program through CancerCare Manitoba. Depending on expertise, the candidate will have opportunities to contribute to this program through teaching and/or graduate student supervision and/or mentoring of medical physics clinical residents.
