3 PhD positions, 1 PostDoc in Medical Physics, University of Tübingen

Tübingen is an internationally leading site in clinical implementation of MRgRT. Through funding by the DFG the first 1.5 T MR-linear accelerator in Germany started in 2018. Our research program aims at unravelling the potential and limitations of online adaptive MRgRT in patients with head and neck, prostate, liver and rectal cancer. Projects include development of novel quantitative MR imaging sequences, predictive models for tumor response and toxicity, deformable dose accumulation, 4D-MR imaging techniques as well as data analysis using machine learning approaches.

The University of Tübingen, Department of Radiation Oncology (with section for Biomedical Physics) and Department for Interventional and Diagnostic Radiology (with section for Experimental Radiology), offer

three PhD positions (65%) & one Postdoc position (100%) & one Clinician Scientist position (100%) (f/m/d).

The positions are part of a joint interdisciplinary research program on Magnetic Resonance guided Radiation Therapy (MRgRT), funded by the German Research Council (DFG PAK 997/1-1) and supported by the Medical Faculty Tübingen. The positions are limited for 2 years, continuation for a third year is intended.
