The Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) is one of five Swiss university hospitals. Through its collaboration with the Faculty of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne and the EPFL, CHUV plays a leading role in the areas of medical care, medical research and training.
The Institute of Radiation Physics (IRA), part of radiology department of the University Hospital (CHUV) and the University of Lausanne (UNIL), develops its activities in the fields of ionizing radiation in medicine (medical physics) and the protection of workers and the public against ionizing radiation (health physics).
The PhD student will carry out a research project in the physics of radiation therapy (quality check of motion tracking in tomotherapy).
The PhD student will also take part in the services as well as teaching activities of the institute. In parallel to the thesis work, the PhD student will have the possibility to obtain the professional board certification in medical physics.
This research subject will be performed within the framework of the doctoral school of UNIL
