CENTRE DE PROTONTHERAPIE D'ORSAY
Post-doctoral position: "Development and validation of tools for
proton therapy dose calculations and irradiations"
An exciting opportunity to join the proton therapy research activities in Orsay. These will use the proton therapy research rooms in the clinical proton therapy centre. The Orsay Proton therapy Center (CPO) founded in 1991 is part of the Radiation Oncology department at Institut Curie, which is one of the most complete in Europe.
This post is associated with a H2020 project INSPIRE which seeks to integrate proton therapy research across Europe. INSPIRE involves Networking activities (NA), Transnational Access (TNA) and Joint Research Activities (JRA). The people appointed would be expected to spend time working in all of these sections.
- For Networking and Transnational Access they would be expected to work with external partners who wished to access the capabilities within the INSPIRE project and to work in partnership with the Coordinator, Project Manager and the leads for Networking and Transnational Access.
In joint research activities they would be expected to work in one or more of the following areas:
- proton therapy radiobiology (RBE considerations)
- testing mathematical models which enable biological factors to be incorporated into treatment planning
- proton therapy dosimetry, robustness and uncertainties, intercomparisons and high dose-rate measurements for scanned beams
The candidate must hold a PhD in radiation physics, medical physics or detection physics • Radiation matter interactions / radiation therapy / dosimetry • Preferred expertise and experience in one or more of the following areas: programming skills (MATLAB, Python, C++) – Monte Carlo simulations (ex: Geant4) – Measurements – Treatment planning (protons).
You will also be expected to have experience in working as part of a multidisciplinary team.
Location: Institut Curie, Centre de protonthérapie d’Orsay, France
Duration: 24 months, starting november 2018
