MSPRF (Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowships); Directorate for Mathematical & Physical Sciences, Division of Mathematical Sciences invites applications from qualified PhD holders for postdoctoral research.

The Fellow will have two alternatives for holding the fellowship:

  1. The Research Fellowship: This will provide full-time backing for any eighteen academic-year months in a three-year period, in intervals not shorter than three consecutive months;
  2. The Research Instructorship: This will provide a arrangement of full-time and half-time support over a period of three academic years, generally one academic year full-time followed by two academic years half-time. This opportunity allows the Fellow to have advantage of teaching experience during the two half-time academic years. The full-time fellowship funding will be provided during the first year but in extremely unusual circumstances.

Expected Number of Awards: 30 to 33

Expected Funding Amount: $5,000,000 subject to availability of funds

Requirements and Qualifications:

Proposals may only be submitted by the following:

  • Fellowships are awarded to individuals, and applications can be submitted directly by the applicant to the NSF. Fellows must associate with institutions or organizations (e.g., colleges and universities, government and national laboratories and facilities, privately sponsored nonprofit institutes and museums, and for-profit organizations under certain conditions).
  • Applications with international host institution attachments are eligible for support, and surplus funding from the Office of International Science and Engineering may be offered for awards with international host institutions.

Who May Serve as PI:

An individual is eligible to submit a proposal to this program if all the following conditions are met:

  • S. citizen, U.S. national, or a legally admitted permanent resident;
  • Should not hold PhD degree more than 2 years as of January 1 of the year of the award;

Description Spatiotemporal optimization of mixed-modality radiation treatments

Radiation therapy is a highly computerized process where the radiation fluence to

be delivered into the patient’s body is determined by means of mathematical optimization.

In combination with intensity-modulated radiation therapy, it is possible to administer radiation

treatments with high spatial accuracy.

Even though radiation treatments include repeated irradiation with identical radiation

fluence in multiple sessions over up to six weeks, the decision about its temporal administration in

the clinic, i.e., the fractionation scheme, is not based on a mathematical objective.

Recently, widely accepted biological models relating the effectiveness of radiation and fractionation

have been used to devise a joint spatiotemporal optimization process extending conventional fluence

optimization towards fractionation for photons and protons [1,2,3]. It could be shown that spatiotemporal

optimization may yield an improved therapeutic ratio realized by different dose distributions to be

delivered in individual treatment fractions.

Here, we propose a PhD project to investigate the interplay between the radiation fluence and the fractionation

scheme for mixed-modality radiation treatments [4]. We have the goal to provide decision support regarding th

e optimal spatial and temporal combination of different radiation modalities for individual patients. Therefore, the

successful candidate will first work on (1) the development of a relative biological effectiveness computation fo

r particles within spatiotemporal optimization and (2) the integration of photons, protons, and carbon ions into

a unified optimization process. The work should result in a spatiotemporal optimization module for our research

treatment planning system matRad [5] that can be evaluated together with our clinical partners at the Heidelberg

University Clinic and the Heidelberg Ion-Beam Therapy Center.

The project will be carried out in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Jan Unkelbach at Zürich University, Switzerland.

To apply for a position please use our online application portal (http://www.dkfz.de/jobs).

The German Cancer Research Center is committed to increase the percentage of female scientists

and encouragesfemale applicants to apply. Among candidates of equal aptitude and qualifications, a person with

disabilities will be given preference.

RequirementsWe are looking for a candidate with a genuine interest in the design, implementation

, and evaluation of quantitative models in radiation therapy. The candidate should have a Master in physics,

mathematics, computer science, or a related field. Experience in scientific programming is mandatory;

experience in radiation therapy treatment planning and numerical optimization or machine learning

would be an advantage.Working Language
