Text: Doctoral candidate or an experimental physicist (PostDoc) specializing in physics or a comparable subject (20-209-6) Wednesday, 5. February 2020 The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the National Metrology Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with scientific and technical service tasks. It furthers progress and reliability in metrology for society, the economy and science. In Department 6.2, Dosimetry for Radiation Therapy and Diagnostic Radiology, of Division 6, we are looking for a doctoral candidate or an experimental physicist (PostDoc) specializing in physics or a comparable subject to join us as soon as possible. This position is available on the basis of a 3-year fixed-term contract. You will be employed at our Braunschweig site. The remuneration will be paid in accordance with remuneration group 13 TVöD Bund for postdocs (85 % for doctoral candidates). Department 6.2 is, among other things, concerned with developing and improving dosimetric for modern radiotherapy processes. Within the scope of the European research project "Metrology for advanced radiotherapy using particle beams with ultra-high pulse dose rates", a subgroup is to develop for the first time a traceable dosimetric measurement procedure for a potential future radiation therapy method with FLASH modality. Four European metrology institutes, eight European research institutions and universities as well as several industrial enterprises are involved in this project. For the measurements, a research accelerator for the generation of high-energy electron radiation in FLASH modality is available in the department. Besides experimental work, Monte Carlo radiation transport calculations must also be performed; in this context, you will be provided support by the experts of our department. Depending on the focus of the work, the tasks are well-suited for both a doctoral thesis and a post-doctoral position. Your tasks: Developing, improving and applying a dose measurement procedure for radiation therapy with FLASH modality, i.e. for high-energy pulsed electron radiation with very high doses per pulse Calculating radiation transport, assessing and verifying the measurement results and the simulation results Participating actively in the project, exchanging with project partners on a regular basis and, if applicable, organizing, planning and implementing on-site measurements at European partners' Presenting the results at project meetings and scientific congresses; writing scientific publications Your profile: You have completed university studies in physics or a comparable subject You have pronounced experimental skills and are flexible You have good programming skills for data analysis (e.g. in MATLAB or Python) A sound knowledge of and experience in the following fields are an advantage: Interaction of ionizing radiation with matter Dosimetry of ionizing radiation, measurement technology in dosimetry, dose measurements with ionization chambers Simulating radiation transport in matter using Monte Carlo methods Fundamentals of metrology, data analysis and measurement uncertainty You have an autonomous, accurate and well-structured working style as well as good organization skills You have a very good command of both spoken and written German and English You have excellent communication skills and are a team player You are willing to travel within the scope of your assignment (within Germany and abroad) You are aware of the fact that you may be occupationally exposed to radiation For further information with regard to this position, please contact: Dr. A. Schüller, phone: 49 531 592-6209, e-mail: andreas.schueller (at) ptb . de or Dr. R.-P. Kapsch, phone: 49 531 592-6210, e-mail: ralf-peter.kapsch (at) ptb . de or Dr. U.
