We offer a postdoctoral and/or MD-PhD position at the Department of Medicine of the University of Fribourg in close collaboration with the Department of Radiology at the Cantonal Hospital of Fribourg (HFR), Switzerland. You will be part of a project that is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and aims to determine whether quantitative parameters derived from multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging can be used as biomarkers to improve detection of clinically significant prostate cancer and to monitor disease progression in patients undergoing active surveillance. We offer an interesting and stimulating workplace with flexible working hours in an interdisciplinary research group consisting of motivated urologists, radiologists, mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists with a wide international network of collaborators that strive to improve prostate cancer management and patient care. You will be working in close collaboration with a MR physicist, attending to the medical aspects of the project. Full-time employment is desired but working part-time is feasible. In the context of a full-time position it is possible to engage in clinical work part-time. The postdoctoral position is intended to facilitate the qualification of a young scientist and offers the possibility to habilitate.
