The Thomas Lab at the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is seeking a postdoctoral fellow in the area of X-Ray Induced Acoustic Dosimetry.

We are developing a novel contrast agent for X-Ray Induced Acoustic Computed Tomography (XACT) dosimetry, with the aim of providing real-time in-vivo 3D calibrated radiation dose measurements for adaptive radiation therapy treatments. The successful postdoctoral candidate will perform simulations and experiments to measure contrast-enhanced X-Ray Induced Acoustic signals that are generated during radiation therapy treatments; perform computer simulations of X-Ray Induced signals; perform data acquisition for XACT dosimetry; develop novel contrast agents for XACT dosimetry.

This project involves a mix of experimental data collection, computational data analysis, and computer simulations. While this position is primarily R&D, the candidate will gain clinical radiotherapy physics experience. This is an excellent opportunity for physicists or engineers to pursue a career in radiotherapy.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in physics, computer science, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, applied math, or a related field.

Experience in scientific programming and computational methods is required. Experience in acoustics, signal processing, image processing, and mathematical modeling is highly desired. Experience in image-guided radiation therapy and radiation therapy physics is preferred, but not required. Demonstrated experience in writing peer-reviewed publications is essential.

The candidate will join our team of researchers in the Department of Radiation Oncology studying ablative radiotherapy, organ motion management, advanced CBCT imaging, response/toxicity assessment, biological modeling, particle therapy, and many other topics. The candidate will have the opportunity to work alongside members of our radiotherapy physics residency program.

Salary and Benefits:

The salary range (or hiring range) for this position has been established at $54,840 to $66,600.

The salary of the finalist(s) selected for this role will be set based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to, internal equity, experience, education, specialty and training.

The above salary range (or hiring range) represents the University's good faith and reasonable estimate of the range of possible compensation at the time of posting.

Your total compensation goes beyond the number on your paycheck. The University of Colorado provides generous leave, health plans and retirement contributions that add to your bottom line.
