Post-Doctoral Training Fellow

Institute of Cancer Research - Radiotherapy Physics Modelling

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a genetic disease. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

Under the leadership of our Chief Executive, Professor Paul Workman FRS, the ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre. Together with our partner The Royal Marsden, we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

The ICR is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

A vacancy exists in the Radiotherapy Physics Modelling Research group of The Joint Department of Physics for a Post-Doctoral Training Fellow.

The post holder is expected to devise and implement new treatment planning strategies for advanced dose delivery systems like the Cyberknife and the Unity MR-Linac. This work is part of a CRUK funded program grant but will also require close collaboration with industrial partners. One key research activity to be performed will be the development of new algorithms for interactive plan adaptation with the aim of translating the developed techniques into clinical practice.

Appointments will be on a fixed term contract for 24 months, with a starting salary of up to £35,538 p.a..

The Joint Department of Physics at ICR/RMH focuses on the application of physics and engineering to cancer research ranging from fundamental research to the support of patient treatments.    We operate a core hour system between 10am and 3pm for general open meetings.

Interview date – 5th September 2017

We consider all applications on merit and have a strong commitment to enhancing the diversity of our staff.
