The « radiopharmaceutical dosimetry » group of the « Sterol Metabolism and
Therapeutic Innovations in Oncology» team (UMR 1037 INSERM/UPS) is opening
a 9-month position (with possible extension to 2 years) in Toulouse
The candidate will first participate to an on-going project on small animal
radiopharmaceutical dosimetry (Theranean).
Gate (http://opengatecollaboration.healthgrid.org/) is an already
established reference in Nuclear Medicine image modelling. The recent
extension in direction of external beam radiotherapy and dosimetry
modelling (Gate V6.1) must be assessed in a context of molecular
radiotherapy and brachytherapy. The research project will mostly evaluate
and increase the capabilities of Gate for radiopharmaceutical dosimetry
(mostly beta or beta/gamma emitters).
Our multidisciplinary group consists in 2 senior scientists, one Post-Doc,
2 PhD students and 3 Master students, all working in the domain of
radiopharmaceutical dosimetry and scientific computing.
Our areas of interest lie in all aspects of molecular radiotherapy, at
various scales (cellular, small animal and clinical scale), and involve
both quantitative imaging (clinical or preclinical) and absorbed dose
calculation (micro- and macro-dosimetry).
Our computing cluster (20 bi-pro Xeon Westmere 12-core with 16 Gb RAM each
and a 16Tb archive system) is able to address most problems associated with
Monte-Carlo modelling of radiopharmaceutical imaging and absorbed dose
calculation. An access to international grids is also possible for larger
problems that require additional computing capabilities.
The candidate will have a strong background in scientific programming (C++,
scripting languages such as Tcl, Perl, Python, etc.).
A good knowledge of Gate is recommended.
Some knowledge in Nuclear Medicine, Medical Physics and dosimetry would be
appreciated. The project is on-going, so the candidate should be available
as soon as possible.
