On-line monitoring of deposited dose distribution in proton therapy using heavy scintillation fibres
The aim of the project is development of method for on-line monitoring of deposited dose distribution in proton therapy. For this purpose an apparatus will be built, which utilizes prompt gamma rays emitted from patient during irradiation. The design is based on fibres made from modern, heavy scintillators. The project is located where medical physics meets nuclear physics and comprises diversity of tasks, from tests of detector components, through building of a modern data acquisition system, to creation of fast algorithms for image reconstruction. The project is realized in the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland in collaboration with the RWTH University in Aachen, Germany. Project leader is Aleksandra Wrońska, PhD.

- indpendence in thinking and acting.
Terms of employment:
employment for up to 30 months, salary ~9000 PLN per month (gross), possibility to include into the group designated collaborators (Ph.D. students, graduate students).
cover letter, cv, copy of the Ph.D. diploma, description of previous scientific work and other experience / achievements, list of publications, letters of recommendation (optional).
