One postdoctoral fellow position is immediately available at the BC Cancer Research Institute in Vancouver, Canada for the development of novel radiopharmaceuticals for cancer imaging and radiotherapy. The postdoctoral fellow will conduct research in the design and synthesis of radioligands targeting biomarkers overexpressed in cancers. Research activities will involve the production and isolation of radioisotopes, peptide and multi-step organic synthesis, and radiolabeling small molecules, peptides and antibodies with various imaging and radiotherapeutic isotopes (F-18, Ga-68, Zr-89, Tc-99m, I-123, In-111, Lu-177, Ac-225 …).
Qualified candidates should have a PhD degree in organic or medicinal chemistry with experience in peptide or multi-step organic synthesis. Experience with HPLC, micro-scale reactions, and radiochemistry is strongly desirable but not required. The ability to perform research and development in a collaborative environment is required including excellent oral and written communication skills. This joint position between BC Cancer and University of British Columbia (UBC) is for a period of two years with the possibility of renewal.
Interested candidates should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and names of three references to: Kuo-Shyan Lin (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
