Postdoctoral Researcher - Physics (2 posts)

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral research positions to provide expert medical physics scientific support in a range of areas of work related to radiotherapy research and development, with a focus on the strategic goals of the Cancer Research UK (CRUK) ART-NET grant.
Advanced Radiotherapy Technologies Network (ART-NET) ART-NET is a research consortium involving five UK centres (ICR/RMH, UCL, MCRC/Christie, Oxford and Leeds). The key aims are to advance radiotherapy with protons, MRI LINAC and SABR in the UK, with Professor Frank Van den Heuvel and Professor Maria Hawkins leading the research on MR-based treatment assessment and proton therapy verification. Professor Maria Hawkins also leads the advance radiation oncology group, which focusses on improving radiotherapy techniques for gastro-intestinal malignancies.
We are looking for two highly motivated postdoctoral researchers with significant expertise in computer modelling, imaging and applied mathematics, and medical physics alongside a pragmatic mind-set to guide the first steps of implementation in a clinical environment.
You will hold, or be working towards, a PhD in imaging, medical physics or a related subject (applied mathematics) and you will have clinical experience of dose calculation and planning. The successful candidates must be able to fulfil the role of Medical Physicist as required by the Ionising Radiations (Medical Exposures) Regulations 2000, IR (ME) R (Statutory Instrument 2000 No.1059) in an area of Radiotherapy Physics, e.g. radiotherapy imaging, treatment planning, radiation dosimetry etc.
This is a full-time post and is offered for 3 years in the first instance.
All applicants must complete a short online application form and upload a CV with publication list, a supporting statement and a reprint of their best article.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 20 December 2017.
