A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the department of Radiation Oncology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The Chung lab's major research focus is to utilize advanced medical imaging tools to measure and predict response and toxicity to treatment with novel systemic agents and high precision radiotherapy. In addition, the lab is working on the standardization of collection and nomenclature of images to facilitate meaningful measurement and interpretation of imaging biomarkers across departments and institutions.
The postdoctoral fellow will develop quantitative imaging processing and analysis approaches in order to identify key imaging parameters that can be utilized as imaging biomarkers and to guide adaptive radiotherapy approaches. In addition, the postdoctoral fellow will also assist in leadership and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students. Successful applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree with less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience, at least one first author publication, as well as a high level of written and oral communication skills in English.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and complete CV via email to Lara Landry, Ph.D. at firstname.lastname@example.org
