W3-Professorship for Medical Radiation Physics.
The professorship is affiliated to the Faculty of Medicine / University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus of the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), Institute of Radiooncology – OncoRay. Additionally the professorship is associated with the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK) and the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT).
The holder of position will be head of the physics section of the Department of Radiation Oncology / OncoRay and furthermore will be head of the Department Medical Radiation Physics at the HZDR. The successful candidate is responsible for teaching within the M.Sc. study course "Medical Radiation Sciences" for medical physicists, participates in the planned B.Sc. course "Radiotherapeutic and imaging Techniques" and is responsible for content and definition of relevant topics in the field of medical physics in the education of medical and dental students as well as of engineers of biomedical technology.
The focus of the scientific work of the professorship is the further development of high precision radiotherapy, especially with protons. Ideally the holder of the position is able to conceptually plan and organize the translation of experimental and preclinical knowledge into clinical application.
We are looking for an internationally outstanding researcher with excellent expertise in medical radiation physics and in the field of high precision external radiotherapy, in particular in the field of particle therapy.
The professorship will closely cooperate with the imaging departments of the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus, the Institute for Radiation Physics of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden – Rossendorf e.V. (HZDR), the NCT partner site Dresden in particular the working group Translational Surgical Oncology, as well as the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK). Your commitment is expressly desired in conception and mediation of medical physics, within the NCT and DKTK School of Oncology as well as in the academic autonomy.
