Operator with programming training - Cyclotron PARTREC

Afdeling

Radiotherapie

Werkomgeving

The UMCG Particle Therapy Research Center (PARTREC) is a research center that is part of the departments of Radiotherapy (RT) and Biomedical Science of Cells and Systems (BSCS) of the UMCG. PARTREC works closely with the UMCG Proton Therapy Centre (GPTC). Within PARTREC, a new research center in the field of proton therapy and radiobiology is being built within the framework of the KWF project IMPACT. Part of this research center is the AGOR cyclotron with which protons can be accelerated to energies that are also used clinically. This offers the possibility to carry out important preclinical research with protons and other ion beams used for new treatment techniques to irradiate tumors. PARTREC is also available to provide services to companies including radiation hardness tests of detectors or components of systems.

Functiebeschrijving

As an operator, you operate the cyclotron for researchers who want to carry out an irradiation with accelerated particles, including MeV protons. For this you will learn how to maintain and operate the cyclotron and how to solve malfunctions on various systems that are needed to keep the cyclotron running. You will be exposed to operating and maintaining extensive water cooling, compressed air and vacuum systems as well as interacting with a large array of electronics and various power supplies that are mainly used for large magnets or electrostatic lenses. In addition, you will write software for the control of the cyclotron. This role will make a major contribution to enabling state-of-the-art preclinical research for radiotherapy and in particular proton therapy.
