Medical College of Wisconsin Physics Postdoctoral Fellowship and Certificate Program

The Medical Physics Certificate Program is an internal program only offered to current radiation oncology postdoctoral fellows.

Postdoctoral Fellowship positions vary dependent on available research and research funding. Postdoctoral fellows completing the Medical Physics Certificate Program are able to apply to any CAMPEP accredited Physics Residency programs.

Anyone interested in applying for a postdoctoral fellowship can send a copy of their CV to Jessica Kotowicz. All CVs are reviewed by Dr. Eric Paulson, our Chief of Medical Physics. Qualified applicants are then contacted for further discussion.

Working at the Medical College of Wisconsin

Why Work at MCW?

The Medical College of Wisconsin brings together the most inquisitive minds in science, medicine, education, and community engagement to solve the toughest challenges in health and society today. At the core of everything we do at the Medical College of Wisconsin is the pursuit of new knowledge and the power of academic medicine, where scientists, physicians and students work together with the community to ask the questions no one else is and fuel the continuous cycle of knowledge that’s shaping the future of medicine.

Why Work in Milwaukee?

Milwaukee is one of the Midwest’s best-kept secrets and a prime location for the Medical College of Wisconsin’s main campus. We are more than just cheese and brats; we are home to a thriving music, sports and arts scene, Milwaukee’s rich history comes alive at any number of local museums or theatres, including our Historic Third Ward, the architectural landmark of the Pabst Mansion and the award-winning Milwaukee Riverwalk are just a few of the many attractions our city has to offer.

Meet Our Physics Postdoctoral Fellows


Silambarasan Anbumani, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow


Research focused on prediction and assessment of radiation treatment response using quantitative imaging, CT biomarkers, and radiomics.


Renae Conlin, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow


Research focuses on deep learning auto-segmentation models that concentrate on the auto-segmentation of abdominal anatomy based on MR images acquired during MR-guided adaptive radiation therapy.


Samira Dabaghmanesh, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow


Research focused on extracting organ-specific radiobiological model parameters for selected abdominal and pelvic organs and to demonstrate their applications in determining OAR dose constraints.


Mohammad Zarenia, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow


Research focused on developing auto-correction models for auto-segmented contours of abdominal organs to accelerate segmentation during MR-guided online adaptive radiotherapy.
