The position is flexible and an ACPSEM registered medical physics specialist in Radiology with an interest in nuclear medicine would also be considered. ACPSEM TEAP Registrar’s nearing completion of the training program are also invited to apply.
The position is full-time however a part-time (~0.6-0.8 FTE) appointment would be considered. This position is mainly based at Moonee Ponds, Melbourne, as well as working at client sites. Our work model allows work from home and flexible working hours.
Medical Physics Specialists is part of Health STEM Solutions. We are clinically experienced qualified medical physics specialists. We work with organisations to ensure medical radiation users are safe, compliant with regulations and supported to achieve clinical best practice.
We adopt a holistic view to ensure we understand organisational needs and priorities across the clinical, technical, and business domains. Our customers are diverse and range from public and private healthcare providers, research organisations, medical device manufacturers, and engineering firms.
We pride ourselves on being effective communicators and translators across these domains, providing pragmatic and practical advice, while striving for optimal efficiency without taking short-cuts.

The Consultant Medical Physics Specialist (CMPS Level 1) works independently as an ACPSEM qualified medical physics specialist in the Medical Physics Specialists team, within the policy and procedure framework of Health STEM Solutions. This includes both setting service delivery requirements and directing medical radiation technical officers (MRTO), as well as directly delivering medical physics services for clients in radiology, nuclear medicine and radiation oncology. This may include regulatory advice, routine data collection and presentation, dosimetry calculation, physics equipment support, quality system and records management, the use of both clinical information systems and clinical imaging/treatment systems.
A Level 1 CMPS is expected to work with a degree of autonomy for routine tasks and to provide appropriate guidance and support to MRTO staff. Interactions with clients for the provision of professional consultant advice is an expectation of the role.
Independent travel to/from and work at client sites will be required, and may include regional and interstate, including overnight stays. This generally requires independent transport (i.e.: motor vehicle and driver’s licence) to access client sites with the necessary medical physics equipment. Independent work on weekends or outside of normal business hours may sometimes be required.
From time to time, participation in similar activities but with broader scope across healthcare may be required for Health STEM Solutions clients.
