July 14, 2010 -- Philips Radiation Oncology has launched a project to triple its engineering staff dedicated to cancer care technology solutions by July 2012. The project includes plans to more than double its workforce in the Madison area by July 2011.

Philips is currently looking for candidates who would be responsible for new development and enhancements to Philips radiation treatment planning systems and related software.
