We currently have an open positions for postdoctoral fellows to work on innovative NCI funded projects in our team within the Physics Division at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Department of Radiation Oncology (https://paganetti-lab.mgh.harvard.edu/).

The candidate will work on understanding the difference between photon and proton radiation therapy in terms of treatment outcome. This is of critical importance because proton therapy results in highly inhomogeneous dose distributions to organs at risk. We aim at advancing current normal tissue complication models by re-defining dosimetric indices and including biomarkers thus improving and potentially replacing the current crude RBE concept of normalizing doses on a voxel-by-voxel basis.

The successful candidate should have a strong background in physics or computer science, i.e. coding experience in C++ or python. In addition, background in machine learning, imaging and radiation biology would be a plus.

MGH is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity highly and encourage international and minority candidates to apply.

To apply, please email your CV and arrange for 3 letters of recommendations to be sent.
