Job Description

Description de l'emploi



Flash and arc therapy are only two of several upcoming challenges in particle therapy. Most of these challenges will impact the heart of particle therapy systems, the beam itself. This is the reason why IBA is currently looking to strengthen the team in beam management skills, with a Beam Management System expert/architect.

As Beam Management System architect, you are part of the system architecture team within IBA Innovation & Development department: a team whose expertise covers IBA system-specific knowledge. Your role is to act as contact point and technical lead for developments, changes and issues related to particle beam optics, beam scanning and beam monitoring. This role encompasses Research and Development projects, support to manufacturing and operations as well as coaching and training support.

In order to fulfill this role, you will need basic knowledge in particle beam optics and monitoring devices. You will grow these skills and gain deep knowledge about how the beam is managed from the accelerator to the patient within IBA protontherapy systems.
Your daily work will include a diversified range of tasks ranging from challenging and reviewing user needs to maintaining part of the product documentation. In the medical device context, you will for instance analyze impacts and assess risks related to beam management (risks for patients and operators, technological risks for projects). You are a key player in the identification of technical solutions.
These positions imply a multidisciplinary approach, good communication skills and collaboration with many other teams (e.g. physicists, mechanical and electrical designers, production engineers, operators).
