Job Description:

DFG-Funded Research Training Group / Graduiertenkolleg GRK 2274
“Advanced Medical Physics for Image-guided Cancer Therapy”

The Research Training Group / Graduiertenkolleg GRK 2274 “Advanced Medical Physics for Image-Guided Cancer Therapy” is a joint initiative of the Physics and Medical Faculties of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) and the Technische Universität München (TUM) as well as the Helmholtzzentrum München (HMGU). The training programme, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for an initial period of 4,5 years, will become operational on October 1st, 2017 (Speaker: Prof. Dr. Katia Parodi/ LMU, Vice Speaker: Prof. Dr. Franz Pfeiffer/ TUM). Preliminary information can be found here:

Mission and research programme
Cancer is a major societal challenge, where the combination of novel imaging and computational techniques with advanced therapeutic strategies is key to early diagnosis, exact tumour characterization and successful treatment. The goal GRK2274 is to promote young scientists from natural sciences and medicine in this rapidly growing field of medical physics. GRK2274 covers basic, translational and clinical research, building upon a long tradition of excellence in biomedical research in Munich from the two universities (LMU, TUM) and the research center HMGU. The multi- and interdisciplinary research programme will touch upon innovative areas of computing (research area A), imaging (research area B) and therapy (research area C), addressed in synergistic Ph.D. and M.D. projects with the common goal to advance image-guided cancer therapy. The original qualification concept features a broad spectrum of compulsory and eligible training activities, to ensure not only academic excellence and scientific independence, but also the development of fundamental personal effectiveness. GRK2274 thus provides an ideal platform to promote innovations in oncology with a potentially high societal impact, and to form the next generation of scientists with excellent career prospects in academia, clinic and industry.
