Health and Medicine: Imaging, Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology
The Department of Radiation Oncology at University of Colorado Cancer Center is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in the area of image guided radiation therapy.
Depending on background, the work may include:
Tumor motion management and dosimetric modelling for pancreatic cancer patients receiving Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy.
Treatment plan optimization using patient-specific motion.
Machine learning and radiation therapy plan modeling.
CT perfusion imaging for response assessment.
These projects will both involve a mix of experimental data collection and computational data analysis and algorithm development. While this position is primarily R&D, the successful candidate will gain clinical radiotherapy physics experience, and if desired, will have opportunities to bolster their CV for residency applications.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in physics, computer science, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, applied math, or a related field. Experience in scientific programming and computational methods is required. Experience in algorithm development for image processing, image reconstruction, or mathematical modelling is highly desired. Experience in image guided radiation therapy and radiation therapy physics is preferred, but not required. Experience in writing peer-reviewed publications is preferred.
University of Colorado Cancer Center is a NCI-designated Cancer Center, and it is located in the Anschutz Medical Campus, a world-class, academic health center with state-of-the-art health care facilities. We provide a full range of clinical services, including IMRT, SRS/SRT, SBRT, LDR/HDR, ultrasound guided prostate implants, TBI, TSI, and other special procedures. The city of Denver offers both 300 days of sunshine per year and the perfect blend of outdoor adventure and urban sophistication.
The successful candidate will join our team of researchers in the Department of Radiation Oncology studying ablative radiotherapy, organ motion management, advanced CBCT imaging, response/toxicity assessment, biological modelling, particle therapy, and many other topics. The candidate will also work alongside members of our radiotherapy physics residency program.
Salary is commensurate with skills and experience. The University of Colorado offers a full benefits package. Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and contact information of three references. University of Colorado is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
