Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den-Ros­sen­dorf e.V.

Through cut­ting-edge research in the fields of ENERGY, HEALTH and MAT­TER, Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dresden-Rossen­dorf (HZDR) solves some of the press­ing soci­etal and indus­trial chal­lenges of our time. Join our 1.400 employ­ees from more than 50 nations at one of our six research sites and help us mov­ing research to the next level!

The Cen­ter for Advanced Sys­tems Under­stand­ing (CASUS) is a Ger­man-Pol­ish research cen­ter for data-intens­ive digital sys­tems research. CASUS was foun­ded in 2019 in Görl­itz and con­ducts digital inter­dis­cip­lin­ary sys­tems research in vari­ous fields such as earth sys­tems research, sys­tems bio­logy and mater­i­als research.

CASUS invites applic­a­tions as Postdoc (f/m/d) AI-driven decision for treat­ment inter­ven­tion in online-adapt­ive pro­ton ther­apy. The research work is car­ried out in close cooper­a­tion with the Insti­tute of Radioon­co­logy – OncoRay. At the Insti­tute of Radioon­co­logy – OncoRay sci­ent­ists (f/m/d) spe­cial­iz­ing in medi­cine, phys­ics, bio­logy and IT work together to cru­cially improve the treat­ment of can­cer by admin­is­ter­ing radi­ation ther­apy that is bio­lo­gic­ally-per­son­al­ized and tech­nic­ally-optim­ized.

The pos­i­tion will be avail­able from 1 Septem­ber 2022. The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to three years.

Postdoc (f/m/d) AI-driven decision for treat­ment inter­ven­tion in online-adapt­ive pro­ton ther­apy


Working field:

Online-adapt­ive pro­ton ther­apy will be enabled by an AI-driven, auto­mated feed­back loop of ima­ging, prompt gamma ima­ging (PGI)-based treat­ment veri­fic­a­tion and fast adapt­a­tion. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate (f/m/d) will work on a decision sup­port for treat­ment inter­ven­tion based on the com­plex PGI data or detec­ted clin­ic­ally rel­ev­ant ana­tomy changes:

  • Gen­er­a­tion of novel mod­els for detect­ing adapt­a­tion needs based on patient ima­ging and on PGI data
  • Auto­mate decision recom­mend­a­tions based on clin­ic­ally rel­ev­ant fea­tures
  • Devel­op­ment of inter­act­ive visu­al­iz­a­tion tools for online and ret­ro­spect­ive check and doc­u­ment­a­tion
  • Integ­ra­tion of evolved tool chain into an online work­flow
  • Pub­lic­a­tion of research res­ults (in peer-reviewed journ­als and at inter­na­tional con­fer­ences)


  • Good PhD degree in Data Sci­ence or a related sub­ject and prefer­able hav­ing a Med­ical Phys­ics back­ground in particle ther­apy
  • Excel­lent pro­gram­ming skills in lan­guages such as Python and Mat­lab
  • Pro­fi­cient use of mod­ern deep learn­ing frame­works
  • Exper­i­ence in code par­al­lel­iz­a­tion and inter­act­ive data visu­al­iz­a­tion is desired
  • High motiv­a­tion to work in a col­lab­or­at­ive envir­on­ment between clinic and IT also at dif­fer­ent loc­a­tions
  • Excel­lent com­mu­nic­a­tion skills in Eng­lish in a sci­entific, multi-pro­fes­sional con­text

What we offer:

  • A vibrant research com­munity in an open, diverse and inter­na­tional work envir­on­ment
  • Sci­entific excel­lence and extens­ive pro­fes­sional net­work­ing oppor­tun­it­ies
  • The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to three years
  • Salary and social bene­fits in accord­ance with the col­lect­ive agree­ment for the pub­lic sec­tor (TVöD-Bund) includ­ing 30 days of paid hol­i­day leave, com­pany pen­sion scheme (VBL)
  • We sup­port a good work-life bal­ance with the pos­sib­il­ity of part-time employ­ment and flex­ible work­ing hours
  • Numer­ous com­pany health man­age­ment offer­ings
  • An employer sub­sidy for the VVO job ticket
