PhD programmes in Germany

  • PhD positions in Medical Physics at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ)

    Are you interested in applying physical and (radio)chemical methods in cancer research?
    The German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg, Germany’s largest biomedical research institute, has its own multidisciplinary research program dedicated to “Imaging and Radiooncology”. This research program is concerned with introducing new ndings, methods and technologies into the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Physicists, mathematicians computer scientists, engineers, biologists, pharmacists and chemists strongly collaborate to tailor tumor treatment to the individual patient and to improve possibilities of local and systemic tumor control.


    Main research activities are focused on:


    • Development of novel approaches in diagnostics and therapy, based on physical methods

    • Non-invasive imaging technologies such as CT, MRI, PET/CT, PET/MRI and radiation therapy technologies
    • Radiotracer and radiopharmaceutical drug development including radiochemistry and nuclear chemistry to target cancer cells
    • Transfer of novel systemic therapeutic and diagnostic methods into a clinical setting
