Job Description

Christchurch is called the Garden City for good reason! Our lovely Botanical Garden and Hagley Park are nestled close by the hospital and with summer here, provide the perfect spots for leisurely strolls or picnics. You can go shopping in our unique Container Mall and take a break punting along the Avon!

If adventure is calling, we've got the Southern Hemisphere's largest Adventure Park coming this Summer! Located 5 kms from the city centre, there's bike trails and zip lines to thrill the daredevil in you.

Christchurch Hospital is a tertiary provider of a wide range of services including nuclear medicine diagnostic scanning and therapies, radiation oncology, and extensive diagnostic imaging. Many of these services use either ionizing radiation or non-ionizing forms such as ultraviolet light, lasers and ultrasound.

We are looking for a Medical Physicist with post-certification clinical experience to join us in this permanent role. You will preferably be an ACPSEM Certified Medical Physicist, with broad experience in Imaging Physics and Radiation Protection.

Working closely with other imaging and radiation protection staff you will support the various users of all forms of radiation. You will need to apply the principles of radiation protection and optimisation to a range of modalities and environments.

You will keep radiation safety central to all you do, playing a key role in imaging and treatment. You will bring excellent technical knowledge, a commitment to communication and teamwork, and a strong quality focus.

Enquiries should be directed to Heather Ewing, Recruitment Specialist, email heather.ewing@cdhb.health.nz.
