Modeling urinary toxicity after radiotherapy of prostate cancer: from pre-clinical experiments to patient prediction
Position: Research fellow
Institution: Medical Physics, San Raffaele Scientific Institute
Location: Milano, Italy
Application closes at: Nov 30th, 2020 18:45
Within a long-term (ongoing) funded project, the researcher is expected to:
- Collaborate with physicists, biologists and radiation oncologists in setting, managing and anayzing results of pre-clinical experiments focused on animal models of radiation-induced urinary toxicities in rats.
- Managing and analyzing data from a large multi-centric clinical trial with already available clinical and dosimetry information of more than 700 patients, aiming to develop predictive models of urinary (and other) toxicities after radiotherapy for prostate cancer
The position is currently open and may be extended up to february 2023. The research is highly inter-disciplinary and will involve both laboratory research and clinical environments, including strict interactions with medical physicists and radiation oncologists. The location (San Raffaele Institute, Milano) is highly reputed and will permit to live a high-level scientific experience, mixed to to the professional life of medical physicists and radiation oncologists in a clinical department.
The ideal candidate is a young physicist i(better if medical physicist) interested to clinical and pre-clinical research with experience in radiotherapy, data analysis/predictive modeling and, possibly, radiobiology.
