The Radionuclide Production and Molecular Radiotherapy Research Laboratories in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA) is seeking candidates for postdoctoral research position in radionuclide production for molecular radiotherapy. Our research group develops and evaluates radiochemistry methods that can be applied to produce and purify therapeutic and theranostic radionuclides, as well as radiolabeling reagents/chelators for attaching radionuclides to biological targeting molecules, such as monoclonal antibodies for cancer therapy.
The postdoctoral scholar will research cyclotron targetry and develop purification methods for the production of radionuclides that can be used in molecular radiotherapy. The initial appointment is one year with an anticipated start date of January 2, 2020, and the appointment is renewable depending upon performance and availability of funding.
High interest in developing new cancer therapy, strong communication skills, and the ability to work independently and as part of a research team effort is required. Other highly desirable knowledge includes separation techniques such as chromatography and extraction methods, glove box techniques, high-temperature tube furnace techniques, X-ray diffraction and fluorescence analysis of solid samples, electrochemistry, analytical chemical techniques such as HPLC, TLC, and mass spectroscopy.
Doctorate in Radiochemistry, Chemistry, Materials Science, or a closely related field
