*** We are accepting applications for 2017 Summer Students***

Deadline for application is April 2nd, 2017

Interested applicants should email with CV, the most recent transcript (unofficial is ok) and cover letter to medical.physics@albertahealthservices.ca by April 2nd, 2017 as well as with Alberta Health Services on line application system here. Applications will be reviewed by the department. We will contact you for more information as required. Do not contact faculty members yourself. 

RADIATION ONCOLOGY PHYSICS is an academic specialization of the Department of Physics and Astronomy.  There are 10 full and Adjunct professors, 8 graduate students, 2 residents and 2 fellows.  We are physically located at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, a fully equipped tertiary cancer treatment treating more than 3000 patients a year. 

Our academic specialization trains students to work as Radiation Oncology Physicists in clinical, academic and industrial applications.  At the undergraduate level, we offer summer research experiences and fourth-year projects.  Our thesis-based M.Sc. and Ph.D. graduate programs combine an intensive didactic program with cutting edge research and hands-on clinical work.  We also offer a two-year clinical residency program, a Post- doctoral Diploma in Radiation Oncology Physics.  We have recently implemented a CAMPEP-accredited Post-doctoral certificate in Radiation Oncology Physics for physicists wishing to transition to a career in medical physics. 

Application for 2017 summer research experience open until April 2, 2017.  Graduate and residency programs applications are complete. For more information about our programs for 2018, please follow the links above.
