Impact: Improving the safety of nuclear technology

Job description

We seek a fellow with research interests in exploring radiation effects on humans using advanced computational and experimental techniques. You will develop and apply radiation dosimetry at the molecular scale and advance the fundamental understanding of interaction of ionizing radiation with living matter. These novel dosimetry methods should be applicable in the fields of nuclear medicine, external beam therapy or health physics. The fellow will provide expertise and leadership in advancing radiation dosimetry in the Netherlands and contribute to international collaborations. TU Delft offers a wide range of radiation sources and has close collaboration with medical centres such as HollandPTC, ErasmusMC and others, contributing expertise in radiobiology.


Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)


In line with your vision on research and education, you thrive on taking the lead in and developing groundbreaking interdisciplinary research, driving health and safety in the field of radiation technology. Harnessing your communication skills and supported by your extensive (inter-)national network, you convince stakeholders of your research proposals, successfully attract funding and grants, and build relevant networks. And as you’ll be contributing to world-class education, you enjoy teaching international students as well as university teachers. You also have:

  • A PhD in (Applied) Physics or Chemistry or another relevant discipline.
  • A track record in radiation biophysics/dosimetry, reflected by publications in relevant scientific journals.
  • A track record in grant writing in which you value collaboration with colleagues and external partners.
  • Experience in delivery and development of education at academic level as well as in the supervision of bachelor and master students.
  • Experience in supervision of PhD students and/or postdoctoral students.
  • Authority in the field and ability to act as the Dutch representative in (inter-)national committees.
  • A track record in harnessing your communication and interpersonal skills and ability to lead constructive discussions with colleagues and (inter-)national partners. Affinity with the organisational aspects of universities and interest to actively contribute to these.
  • A good command of spoken and written English, as you’ll be working in an internationally diverse community, and a good command of the Dutch language or the willingness to learn this.
