General information

Reference : UPR3266-VIRLEF-005
Workplace : CAEN
Date of publication : Friday, October 04, 2019
Type of Contract : FTC Technical / Administrative
Contract Period : 12 months
Expected date of employment : 1 December 2019
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : 2555 euros brut mensuel
Desired level of education : 5-year university degree
Experience required : 1 to 4 years


The candidate will develop and characterize a 3D dosimetry prototype dedicated to small beams in proton therapy.
This development based on plastic scintillators and CCD cameras aims to provide a verification tool for the treatments of small tumors (smaller than 3 cm) with proton beams. This would allow to extent proton treatments to new indications.


To achieve the goals of this project, the candidate will have to:
• Perform Monte Carlo simulations to determine and optimize the main characteristics of the prototype
• Implement a prototype
• Characterize the system with proton beams
o Optical deformations
o Scintillation vs. Cerenkov radiation
o …
• Determine dose maps from experimental scintillation maps


The candidate must hold a Master or a PhD degree (with less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience) in the domain of radiations physics (preferably in medical applications).
Knowledge in radiotherapy (ideally in proton therapy) and in dosimetry would be a plus.
The candidate must have previous experience in instrumentation and in Monte Carlo simulations. Experience in scintillation detection or scintillation dosimetry would be a plus.
Finally, the candidate must have skills in data analysis and in computer programming.

Work Context

The contract is part of a project funded by the Normandy Region. It will be done at GANIL in collaboration with the LPC Caen and the CRLCC François Baclesse.
