Postdoctoral Researcher on MR imaging in proton radiotherapy at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf

As a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) employs about 1,200 people. The Center's focus is on interdisciplinary research in the areas energy, health and matter.

The OncoRay team at the Institute of Radiooncology is world-leading in the development of an MR-integrated proton radiotherapy system. Following the successful development of a first
research prototype-demonstrator in 2018, a first-in-human study with a first clinical prototype is planned in the coming years.

This project aims at developing and optimizing the necessary MR pulse sequences on the low-field in-beam MR system to be used and to quantify and correct for geometric distortions in MR images. Furthermore, low-field MR images need to be incorporated into the radiation treatment planning system to enable treatment adaptation workflows. For this, data from the MR-LINAC of the Faculty of Medicine of the Technische Universität Dresden system will also be available.

The post-doctoral researcher searched for is expected to drive the project within a multi-disciplinary team of (medical) physicists, engineers and clinicians at OncoRay.

The position will be available from March,1st 2021. The employment contract is limited to two years.
