Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : 2617 - 3729 euros bruts
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : Indifferent


The contributions of the candidate will be focused on :
- track structure simulations in biological medium,
- improvement of water radiolysis modeling,
- development of multi-scale geometries of biological targets,
- inclusion of repair mechanisms,
- development of Geant4-DNA user applications for radiobiology and medical physics,
- irradiation of biological samples on the CENBG microbeam facility.


The candidate will contribute to the development and validation of Geant4-DNA, combining open source code development, user applications, and participation to irradiation experiments. These developments will take place in an international collaborative context (Geant4 and Geant4-DNA collaborations) and the candidate will have the opportunity to encourage the visibility of his/her activities through publications and conference presentations.

Work Context

Modeling fundamental interactions of ionising radiation with biological medium remains a major challenge of today's radiobiology. The CENBG "IriBIO" team coordinates since 2008 the development of the first simulation platform fully open to the community - Geant4-DNA ( - allowing a mechanistic modeling of biological damage induced by ionising radiation at sub-cellular scale.
