Medical Physicists Permanent, Full Time Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland Radiation Oncology (ARO) is a private radiation therapy department in Auckland, New Zealand that is jointly owned by MercyAscot and Southern Cross Hospitals. 

We use some of the latest equipment in radiation therapy that includes three Elekta linear accelerators (Agility BLD, HexaPOD 6DOF couch, 4DCBCT and intra fractional imaging), Philips Brilliance big bore CT scanner, RayStation TPS, Mosaiq R&V and access to various imaging techniques including PET and MRI. 

We are the first users of the ExacTRAC imaging system in New Zealand and will be upgrading to the ExacTRAC Dynamic system when clinically released in 2019/2020. This investment in technology allows us to deliver a variety of contemporary treatment techniques including IMRT, VMAT and SRT and use a number of novel tools (e.g. deformable image registration and adaptive techniques). We are currently in the process of commissioning the latest version of the RayStation TPS (8B) and continuing our roll-out of EPID dosimetry (SunCHECK).

To facilitate ongoing developments of clinical service, and our future expansion, we are seeking two radiation therapy medical physicists and welcome applications from ACPSEM accredited (or international equivalent) candidates. 

These positions will actively contribute to all aspects of radiation physics support including quality assurance, dosimetry, commissioning, advising on treatment planning techniques and contributing to development projects and research activities. You should possess all-round radiation physics experience and the desire to improve patient care and enhance the quality of treatments. 

Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the candidate’s experience. For further information, or to apply by sending a cover letter and CV, please contact Dr Rick Sims, Chief Physicist, email:

Closing Date:Positions remain open until filled.
