Postdoc in radiation physics, Odense University Hospital

21. februar 2012 - Karina Lindberg Gottlieb

Job description:

A position as postdoc in radiation physics is vacant at the research group of the Laboratory of Radiation Physics, Research Unit of Oncology, Institute of Clinical Research.

The position will be either one 2-year fulltime position or two 2-year halftime positions.

The postdoc will be expected to carry out research on the possibility to extract toxicity information from Cone Beam CT images (see Radiother Oncol 2011 100 351-355). The work involves extraction of 3D image information from Cone Beam images and registration of the information with the delivered dose distribution. Extraction of image information is dependent on high quality images, thus optimization of images is part of the work. The optimisation could be related to optimisation of acquisition parameters or new image reconstruction algorithms (iterative and or scatter correcting algorithms). Development of models describing the expected toxicity based on the Cone Beam images will be an important part of the research. Statistical analysis of model estimates and clinical outcome are essential in the research, and will be performed in close cooperation with medical doctors and Ph.D. students. The postdoc will be expected to be involved in the supervision of master and Ph.D. students related to the Laboratory of Radiation Physics. The postdoc will also be expected to be actively involved in writing applications for research grants related to the Laboratory of Radiation physics.

The potential applicant will be expected to have a background as Ph.D. in physics, biology, medical physics, or medicine at the time of employment. Applicants with expertise in working with image optimisation and deformable image registration also having working knowledge about designing, writing, and documenting software to handle large amount of image information will be preferred. Knowledge of statistical analysis of theoretical and actual outcome parameters will be important in this position.

Experience within teaching and supervising will be of importance. If it is of interest to the applicant an agreement concerning teaching at the faculty's pre-graduate educations might be negotiated.

Application, salary, etc.:

Further information can be obtained by contacting the Head of the Institute of Clinical Research, professor Kim Brixen, by e-mail
