RadoNorm – partner GSI just opened PhD position on modelling

Radon progeny nuclei attach to the bifurcating airways, leading to a highly inhomogeneous exposure. The impact of such inhomogeneity on the associated radiation risks is unclear.

In the present project the radiation effects shall be investigated with state-of-the-art effect modelling (e.g. Local Effect model) on a cellular level and propagated towards expected tissue effects. To approach this task, existing model approaches will be modified and used to study the relevance of inhomogeneity for different exposure scenarios and radiobiological endpoints.

The position will be available from June 1, 2022 or soon thereafter. The employment contract is limited to three years. More information available at: GSI  –  PhD position within the EU funded RadoNorm project
