Job Description

Post Doctoral Research Fellow

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 will be working on automated image processing and treatment planning for real-time MRI guided radiation therapy as part of our CRUK funded Multi-Disciplinary project team. The post holder will have the opportunity to develop new algorithms for online treatment plan adaptation based on real-time acquired MRI images. The experimental validation of these new techniques will be performed at the MR linac platform currently being commissioned at the ICR. The post holder will be part of a larger project team to translate the developed techniques into clinical practice.

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

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.
