Post-Doctoral position at the Johns Hopkins University in
A Post-Doctoral position is available in development of a shape, image, treatment planning, dosimetry and outcomes based database for advanced analysis of patients undergoing radiation therapy. The system (Oncospace) provides a framework for assessing the influence of patient information on various aspects of radiation therapy from treatment plan quality to patient outcomes and complications. The system includes development and implementation of web-enabled database application for analyzing the impact of anatomical and target shapes on the plan quality of intensity modulated radiotherapy treatments. The focus of this position will include the advancement of the machine learning toolset for analysis of outcomes and complications and the correlation to shapes, radiation dosimetry, as well as other medical information such as laboratory test results and patient history. The ultimate goal is to utilize the database of prior patients to predict treatment related risks and outcomes for personalized radiation therapy of new patients.
The candidate will have excellent collaborative opportunities with a diverse group of multidisciplinary researchers from radiation oncology physics, medical imaging, image processing, data mining, database design and analysis; as well as with a diverse of pool of clinical collaborators. The candidate will also have the opportunity to participate and train in the practice of clinical radiation oncology physics. Primary research interactions will take place within Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences (www.radonc.jhmi.edu) at the Johns Hopkins University - School of Medicine.
