Qualification Details

Applications are welcomed from students with a MSc degree. Preferred applicants will have:

  • A strong background in medical physics, experimental physics, computational physics or engineering
  • Good knowledge of ionizing radiation interactions in matter
  • Relevant computing experience (Linux environment, Python, C(++), SLURM, git, matplotlib)
  • Experience in Monte Carlo particle transport simulations

Responsibilities/Job Description

A PhD position in the area of proton therapy is available under the supervision of Professor Niels Bassler at the Danish Centre for Particle Therapy (DCPT). The position is a part of a project funded by the Danish Cancer Society, and starts a new line of research at DCPT, spatially fractionated proton therapy (SFRT). The overall objective is to assess the biological potential of SFRT using a therapeutic proton beam at DCPT, with the purpose of translating it to the clinic. Main focus of this position will be the initial beamline development and dosimetric validation, and afterwards the biological characterization in close collaboration with our radiation biology team. Main tasks will include design, theoretical calculation and simulation, and experimental verification of relevant SFRT beam configurations. The candidate will work in a highly interdisciplinary team with physicists, medical physicists, radiation biologists and medical doctors.
