Duties and Responsibilities

The post holder will work as part of a national collaboration involving five of the UK’s leading radiotherapy research institutions on accelerating the use of advanced radiotherapy methods into clinical use. This will involve developing state-of-the-art approaches for several radiotherapy related applications with a focus on MR-only planning (i.e. image synthesis and organ-at-risk segmentation), linking these technologies with adaptive radiotherapy and motion compensation, and translating these into clinical solutions that are suitable for large scale trials and routine use. The successful applicant will be required to work closely with both clinical and academic researchers at the collaborating institutions as well as colleagues in CMIC.

The appointment is available from 1 May 2017 and is funded for 2 years in the first instance.

Key Requirements

Applicants must have a PhD, or equivalent academic or industrial experience and must be able to demonstrate strong image computing and problem solving skills. Candidates must possess a 2:1 honours degree, or equivalent, in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Mathematics or a related subject. Experience in the design, implementation, and validation of appropriate medical image processing methods, strong software engineering skills using languages such as C++ or python, and a good publication record in high-impact peer-reviewed academic journals and conferences. Experience with image processing methods for planning and guiding radiotherapy is highly desirable.

The Appointees will have a strong mathematical and/or engineering background and relevant experience in one or more research areas listed within the person specification.
