Maastricht University has a vacancy for a postdoctoral researcher at the faculty of Health Medicine and Life Sciences in the department of Radiotherapy. Radiotherapy's strategic goal is to tailor cancer treatments to the clinical, biological and genetic characteristics of an individual patient so that the best outcome can be achieved. An important part of the strategy is the implementation of proton therapy, not only in Maastricht but also across the Netherlands. To this end, the ProTRAIT project was started together with UMC Groningen.

The aim of ProTRAIT is the realization of IT infrastructure needed for an evidence-based and model-based introduction of proton therapy into the clinic. In ProTRAIT, you will be responsible for the introduction and implementation of the Personal Health Train in all Dutch proton therapy centers. Important aspects of this work include adherence to the FAIR data principles and implementation of distributed learning.

Additionally, you will be part of a cross-faculty team consisting of computer scientists, medical physicists and medical informaticists, PhD students, software engineers and post-doctoral researchers. As an academic position focused on research, you will mentor and recruit PhD students and have limited teaching responsibilities.


The terms of employment of Maastricht University are set out in the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (CAO). Furthermore, local UM provisions also apply.
