Location: AURORA, US

Job Description

Postdoctoral fellowship in quantitative CBCT imaging and image guided radiation therapy

The Department of Radiation Oncology at University of Colorado Cancer Center is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in the area of image guided radiation therapy and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) physics.


We are developing novel imaging technologies to improve tissue visualization and quantitative accuracy in CBCT in this National Cancer Institute funded project. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in the development cycle of our novel CBCT system, which includes imaging hardware development, benchtop imaging experiments, image processing algorithm development, conducting a clinical trial, and data/image analysis. Based on the qualifications of the successful candidate, the postdoctoral fellow will be responsible in part for the above-mentioned research areas, and will help to translate the research CBCT platform into a clinical CBCT system for a first-in-human clinical trial. Other responsibilities involve presentation of results in national or international meetings, preparation of manuscripts for peer-reviewed publications, collaboration with our industry and academic partners in the context of this project.


Skills in one or more of the following areas are desired:

•               Hands on experience with imaging instrumentation or physics experiments

•               Image guided radiation therapy physics

•               Algorithm development for image or signal processing

•               Physics of x-ray sensors or particle detectors

•               Data or image analysis

•               Modeling of imaging or detector systems


Strong experimental physics or medical physics background is desired. Experience in CBCT imaging or image guided radiation therapy is desired, but not required. A track record of peer-reviewed publications is desired. Candidates interested in clinical medical physics career path will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in radiation therapy physics at the Department of Radiation Oncology.



Minimum Requirements:

·         Ph.D. in physics, medical physics, electrical engineering, computer science, applied math, biomedical engineering or a related field.

·         Programming experience in Matlab, Python, or C++

·         Minimum of 2 years of research experience in experimental physics or medical physics, image/signal processing, physics/engineering instrument development, or related fields

·         Good communication and organizational skills
