We propose a PhD position in the context of cancer treatment with light ion
beams (hadrontherapy). In the framework of the Marie Curie Initial Training
Network PARTNER <http://partner.web.cern.ch/partner/Welcome.html>, funded by
the EU, IBA <http://www.iba.be/> and
CREATIS<http://www.creatis.insa-lyon.fr/>will host for a three-year
period an early stage researcher. He/she will be
offered to participate in active training and to prepare a PhD thesis, while
being considered as a full member of the IBA particle therapy research team
in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium). The academic supervision of the PhD will be
carried out by a multi-disciplinary collaboration between CREATIS,
CLB<http://oncora1.lyon.fnclcc.fr/>and CNDRI, currently working on the
simulation tools and methodology
required for future treatment planning.

The aim of the thesis is to design Monte Carlo simulations for computing
dose distributions from proton/carbon irradiation inside a patient and to
compare them to the dose distributions obtained with a
commercially-available treatment planning system (TPS). Special attention
will be paid to target heterogeneity and physical properties of
particle-matter interactions, especially for carbon ions, in order to
provide the information needed to compute the biological dose.

More details (how to apply...) can be found in the pdf document.
