Clinical dosimetry in Targeted Radionuclide Therapy opening - 22 months contract

Position: Clinical dosimetry in Targeted Radionuclide Therapy opening - 22 months contract

Institution: Toulouse Cancer Research Centre (CRCT)

Location: Toulouse, France

Application closes at: Jun 30th, 2019 23:59

Toulouse Cancer Research Centre team 15 (Multi resolution dosimetry for radiotherapy optimization) is opening a 22 months position for a clinical/research scientist.

General context:
Our research team is specialised in the optimisation of targeted radionuclide therapy dosimetry. We are involved in several clinical trials (academic or industrial research) in which we centralise and process dosimetric data, using clinical dosimetry workstations or homemade computing tools. We are now reaching a stage where the recruitment of clinical/research scientists to manage these activities makes sense.

Job description:
The selected applicant will reinforce the team in charge of clinical dosimetry processing in our laboratory (one full time scientist under the responsibility of the team leader, one part-time computing scientist). Even though not in front line for data acquisition, he/she may have to supervise/advise on clinical dosimetry protocol settings, and travel to clinical sites to participate to the implementation of acquisition protocols.
The work will mostly consist in collecting relevant dosimetric data (imaging or non-imaging data such as blood and urine counting), insure the integrity, quality and traceability of collected data, process dosimetric data (reconstruction, fusion, segmentation) to derive time-activity-curves and compute the absorbed dose to both tumours and healthy tissues, in collaboration with the members of the team and associated clinicians. 
For these task, the applicant will have of get acquainted with dosimetry workstations installed in the laboratory (Dosisoft planet dose, Hermes software including OLINDA 2, Philips Stratos, etc.) and locally developed dosimetric tools (Local energy deposition, convolution, Monte Carlo modelling of radiation transport, etc.).
The successful candidate will also have to participate to meetings and teleconference in relation to the project.
Aside of his/her clinical dosimetry duties, the applicant will be welcome to participate to our research and development projects.
