Responsibilities/Job Description

Applications are invited for a highly motivated Research Technician to contribute to the research of the Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry (RPC) group. The aim of the group is to develop radiopharmaceuticals for targeted diagnosis and treatment of cancer. By combining a targeting vector (i.e. small molecules or peptides) with an imaging radionuclide, we can identify the molecular alterations of cancer cells using noninvasive nuclear imaging. Next, tumors can be specifically treated with targeted radionuclide therapy. It corresponds to the so-called « theranostic » paradigm. Our group is developing these theranostic agents for a safer and more efficient management of cancer.

The project is highly multi-disciplinary and the successful candidate will collaborate with chemists/radiochemists to perform preclinical testing of newly developed (radio)pharmaceuticals. Expertise in various in vitro assays and in vivo experimentation in mouse models of cancer is compulsory. Experience in handling radioactive material will be considered as an asset. The candidate will also participate to lab duties and organization, equipment management and support. Evidence of a deep understanding of previous field(s) of research and of independent intellectual and practical contribution to previous research project(s) will be sought.
