RAPTOR (Real-Time Adaptive Particle Therapy of CanceR) is a Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union, with the goal of bringing the on-line adaptive particle therapy closer to the clinic.

We are currently recruiting 15 highly motivated PhD students to work on different aspects of this challenging project. Candidates should hold a master degree in physic, biomedical engineer, software engineer, mathematic or related studies at the time of the enrolment (expected  between July-October 2021),  have less than  4 years of research experience and should satisfy the EU  mobility rule. More information about the 15 projects, details on the recruitment process and selection criteria can be found at the RAPTOR web-page https://raptor-consortium.com/

The researchers recruited in RAPTOR will conduct research projects at both academic and non-academic health care facilities. The active involvement of industry ensures that the transfer of industry-relevant skills is an integral part of individual ESR projects.  RAPTOR aims to train a new generation of researchers, enabling a paradigm shift from treatment approaches that are manual and stepwise to those that are automatic and seamless, while assuring standardized clinical implementation of real-time adaptive PT.

The recruited ESRs will acquire a broad range of advanced and transferable skills within a unique, innovative, multidisciplinary and inter-sectoral training environment. Regular training schools and secondments to other EU academic and industrial partners will allow them to develop a broad range of valuable transferable skills.

A total of 15 PhD positions are available at 8 universities, 2 research centres and 3 companies, in the framework of the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie InnovativeTraining Network (ITN) RAPTOR . To apply for the project, please follow this link: https://raptor-consortium.com/
