The Maastro CLinic (Netherlands) has a vacancy for a PhD student in imaging techniques
The radiotherapy institute MAASTRO CLINIC provides cancer care to patients in the South-East region of the Netherlands. MAASTRO CLINIC works closely with the radiotherapy department of the University Hospital Maastricht (MUMC+) in the fields of education, clinical and pre-clinical research.
MAASTRO CLINIC has a vacancy (1-year position) for a:
PhD student in imaging techniques for precision irradiation in pre-clinical
In this position you will carry out research in the field of precision irradiation for small animals (mice, rats). This is a novel field of research where a combination of precision irradiation, imaging and e.g. chemotherapy are explored for treatment of cancer. Your project will be about integrating advanced imaging such as dual energy CT, spectral CT and bioluminescence into a precision irradiator.
For this, you will have access to a highly novel, cutting-edge experimental device which is equipped with a precision irradiator, a micro CT scanner and a bioluminescent camera. MAASTRO cLINIC plays a leading role in this field. The project will be in close collaboration with a team of physicists, biologists
and engineers. There will also be collaboration with the developer of the research platform.
