Postdoctoral Researcher (Physics)

CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation and Oncology, University of Oxford

Oxford, South East England, United Kingdom

Salary: Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

We have an exciting opportunity for a physicist with significant expertise in computer modelling, imaging and applied mathematics to join the Department of Oncology. You will work closely with the University, NHS, and a private partner, Genesis Care, to develop state- of-the-art medical imaging techniques and dose deposition algorithms and support their use in University-sponsored clinical trials. Although a University post, with a primary focus on University-sponsored research and development, the post holder will also be expected to spend a small percentage of their time working directly with the service delivery teams to ensure that research activities fit seamlessly within the clinical routine.

You will be supported and encouraged in identifying and developing scientific research projects and will be expected to attend scientific conferences and present your work and to publish papers in scientific journals. You will also be expected to pro-actively look for opportunities to improve and develop treatment imaging within the clinical environment.

We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and proactive individual with a PhD (or working towards) in imaging, medical physics or a related subject (applied mathematics) and with clinical experience of dose calculation and planning. Experience with different computing environments and development of high-level computer code would be advantageous.

This is a full-time post offered for 3 years in the first instance.

All applicants must complete a short application form, upload a CV and supporting statement.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 24 April 2019. Interviews are scheduled for 2 and 3 May 2019.
