Post Doctoral Research Fellowship

Postdoctoral fellowship in targeted radiotherapy: The Molecular Imaging Consortium of the College of Medicine of the University of Saskatchewan is seeking applications for a post-doctoral research fellowship focused on the production, characterization and processing of linear accelerator and cyclotron produced radiometals including 99Mo/99mTc and 89Zr, to be used for radiolabeling biological molecules of interest. The ideal candidate would be experienced in cyclotron operations, working with radionuclide generators as well as radiochemistry of radioisotope (radiometals) production and processing. Experience in the biological characterization of radiopharmaceuticals is desired.

Qualifications: Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D, preferably within the last three years in one of the following areas: medicinal chemistry, chemistry, and radiochemistry or radiopharmaceutical sciences.

Conditions: The position is for two years with possibility of an extension. The suggested salary is $40,000 – 45,000 CDN. Candidates are required to present their research at local and internal conferences in radiochemistry/molecular imaging for which full financial support is available. The project is partly in collaboration with an industry partner and some time will be spent with the partner working on other aspects of the project.

How to Apply: Applicants should be available to start as soon as possible. Review of applications will begin immediately until the position is filled.  Please send a cover letter detailing your background and qualifications and how they match the position. Please include full curriculum vitae (CV) detailing your education, awards, list of publications, abstracts presented at conference, and research experience to the email address below. Attach a PDF file of two publications relevant to radiochemistry/radiopharmaceutical sciences, and provide the names of two referees (preferably former supervisors) that will be contacted to provide a confidential reference about you.
