Universitätsklinikum Carl Gustav Carus DresdenDresden
The two ZIK-Centers for Innovation Competence ICCAS in Leipzig and OncoRay in Dresden have joined forces to start a new
multidisciplinary research project: SONO-RAY – Tumor therapy combining MR-guided focused ultrasound and radiation
therapy. The goal of SONO-RAY is to combine noninvasive image-guided therapy approaches of magnetic resonance guided
focused ultrasound and radiation therapy to improve the efficacy of cancer treatment. For this project, new research
groups will be established both at the ICCAS (Innovation Center for Computer Assisted Surgery) in Leipzig and at OncoRay
National Centre for Radiation Research in Oncology in Dresden. Both research groups will work on complementary aspects of
the project, which is sponsored by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The group at OncoRay will focus
on pre-clinical experiments, whereas the group at ICCAS will focus on cell and phantom experiments. The ultimate goal is
to embark on early phase clinical studies towards the end of the funding period. Both groups will closely collaborate
with each other and benefit from scientific exchange between the two institutions. Both at ICCAS and OncoRay, the project
is supported by an interdisciplinary group of scientists and clinicians from several disciplines in oncology. Group members
will benefit from existing training programs for pre-doctoral and postdoctoral trainees at the Technical University in Dresden.
For the OncoRay Research Group we invite applications for the position of
The salary is according to the TV-L dispositions.
This SONO-RAY project will investigate the fundamental mechanisms of thermal and structural effects of focused ultrasound on
tissue by in-vivo validation of in-vitro derived results in a small-animal model, and the optimization of irradiation experiments.
The position will involve supervision of PhD students.
We are looking for a team player with a strong interest in research and development in pre-clinical radiation oncology. Formal
admission requires a PhD or equivalent degree in (applied) physics. Preferably, the applicant has experience in computer modeling
of biological data. The position is limited to 3 years.
