Your tasks

We are looking for two PhD students to work on two projects relating to the use of MRI in proton therapy :

  • In the first project ( Cancer radiomics targeted by pencil beam scanning proton therapy for deformable tumours ) the PhD student will help to improve the quality of healthcare provided for cancer patients by adapting the treatment plan to the biological heterogeneity of tumor tissues of individual patients.
  • For this, functional MR biomarkers describing the local radiositivity will be integrated with motion models to develop a decision support platform for model based (in-

    silico) randomised clinical trial and patient stratification.

  • In the second project ( Towards Online MRI guided Scanned Proton Therapy ), the PhD student will help develop numerical 4D phantoms for simulating online MRI guided proton treatments.
  • Based on these, comprehensive simulations of MRI-induced proton pencil beam distortions will be perfomed, which will be integrated into the 4D dose calculations for proton treatment planning.

    Finally, the clinical feasibility and efficacy of MRI and non-MRI image guided approaches will be quantified and compared for proton therapy.

    Your profile

    You should have a Master degree in physics, biomedical engineering or related disciplines. Medical physics / biomedical engineering knowledge in radiotherapy related projects is beneficial.

    Knowledge of medical imaging and image processing. Experiences in MRI imaging, Monte Carlo simulation and programming would be advantageous.

    We offer

    Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration. You will profit from a systematic training on the job, in addition to personal development possibilities and our pronounced vocational training culture.

    If you wish to optimally combine work and family life or other personal interests, we are able to support you with our modern employment conditions and the on-site infrastructure.
