Jouw functie binnen onze afdeling
We are looking for a clinical scientist at the radiotherapy department of the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek hospital. You will be working on improvement of the clinically applied EPID dosimetry methods and software.
The Radiation Oncology department of the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek is a dynamic department that treats more than 5,000 patients per year with the most modern techniques. Because of a good collaboration between research and clinical practice, we are able to apply new techniques quickly, safely, and on a large scale. This places Antoni van Leeuwenhoek nationally and internationally at the forefront of clinical radiotherapy.
To ensure quality and safety, the treatment radiation dose is verified accurately. To this end, Electronic Portal Imaging Devices (EPIDs) are applied. The EPID is situated behind the patient (w.r.t. the radiation source) and detects transmitted radiation. Home built software is used to reconstruct the delivered dose to the patient, and to compare it with the intended treatment dose.
In the EPID dosimetry group, your role is to facilitate the connection between research and clinic. You will be developing more efficient and more precise methods for in vivo dosimetry. You will be maintaining the software, processing the feedback from medical physicists, and supporting them in their task to take clinical decisions based on dosimetry results. You will be responsible for quality assurance of the clinically released software. Furthermore, your results will contribute to improvement of the commercially released version of our dosimetry software, and to safe clinical introduction of MR-guided radiotherapy.
The EPID dosimetry group is part of the Medical Physics and Instrumentation group which has about 70 employees. Next to yourself, the team consists of a medical physicist, a radiographer, two postdoc physicists, three researchers and a software developer. You will collaborate closely with these group members, but also with other (medical) physicists, postdocs, physicians, researchers and radiographers.
We are looking for a motivated physicist, clinical scientist with a drive for clinical development. If this challenges you and you recognize yourself in the following conditions, we would like to invite you for an introduction.
- You have a university degree (Master of Sciences) in a relevant direction, preferably followed by a PhD
- You can express yourself well in English, orally and in writing
- You can express yourself in Dutch, or are willing to learn this
- You have knowledge of programming languages, e.g. C, C++, Delphi or Python
- You can work independently, but also feel at home in a multidisciplinary team
- You are able to explain your findings clearly to other professions in the department
- You have strong analytical skills and focus on quality
