at the Department of Physics . Closing date: 30 April 2021.
The Department of Physics is one of the biggest departments within the Faculty of Science and supports a broad range of basic research in experimental and theoretical physics. It has about 250 employees of which 95 are PhD students. Many have been internationally recruited. The Department is part of the AlbaNova University Center, which apart from the Department of Physics houses the Department of Astronomy, the Physics Departments at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), and the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita).
The Department of Physics and Stockholm University is affiliated to Stockholm Dual Career Network (SDCN) that supports expat partners with professional events, career-related advice and by building a social network in their new hometown. www.sdcn.se/ .
Radiotherapy is one of the main therapeutic modalities for the treatment of cancer, more than 50% of the oncological patients being treated with this form of therapy. The advertised position is associated with a project aiming at developing an in silico testbed for the simulation of the outcome of radiotherapy using photons, protons or heavier ions that would allow the investigation of the influence of various biological and physical factors on the tumour response.
More specifically it will aim at developing in silico tumours with respect to the tumour microenviroment, intrinsic radiosensitivity and density of clonogenic cells, integrating the simulated in silico tumours into a research version of a treatment planning system and simulate the effect of photon, proton and ion radiotherapy and determiing the relative clinical effectiveness of protons and heavier ions than protons and identify the key factors influencing the treatment outcome.
The position involves research and developent of the computational framework for creating an in silico testbed for radiotherapy based on a virtual tumour model that would account for the main tumour microenvironmental features known to be related to the outcome of radiotherapy integrated into a treatment planning and optimisation system.
Researchers are appointed primarily for purposes of research and must hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.
In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skills in radiotherapy treatment planning and optimisation, programing and computer simulations of the effect of radiation on cells. The successful applicant will be selected based on documented knowledge relevant for the area of study, knowledge of scientific instrumentations and method, analytical skills, personal motivation and team working skills.
Excellent ability to express themselves in written and spoken English is required. The applicants are encouraged to provide supporting documents that substantiate qualifications, e.g., knowledge, skills, abilities and experience. References and interviews will be used to assess qualifications of the applicants.
Terms of employment
The position involves full-time employment for two years. Start date 2021-08-01 or as per agreement.
Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.
