Unit Leader available at the Unit for Preclinical Proton Therapy and Imaging

Offentlig forvaltning

A unit leader position is available at the Preclinical Proton Therapy and Imaging Unit, Institute for Cancer Research, Oslo University Hospital.

In connection with establishing a new proton therapy centre at the Radium Hospital, the Division of Cancer Medicine at Oslo University Hospital is establishing a new core facility for Preclinical Proton Therapy and imaging organised under the Department of Core Facilities at the Institute for Cancer Research.

The Department of Core Facilities runs seven regional and national technology platforms financed by the Southern-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority and the Research Council of Norway. The Department aims to provide state-of-the-art services and competence in advanced technologies, thus contributing to research groups' international competitiveness. The Department, with 20 employees, is organised into four units: Advanced Microscopy, Flow Cytometry, Genomics and Bioinformatics and a new unit for Preclinical Proton Therapy and Imaging.

The Unit Leader will have administrative and personnel responsibility for the Proton Therapy and Preclinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging Core Facilities with 2-3 staff. The core facilities deliver advanced services within preclinical imaging using magnetic resonance imaging and in vivo imaging systems, and the candidate is expected to build a successful service for preclinical proton therapy. The core facilities provide cutting-edge competence and services to research groups within the Institute for Cancer Research and Oslo University Hospital and external academic and commercial groups. The unit leader reports to the Head of the Department of Core Facilities.
