The Price group at the University of Saskatchewan (UofS) is inviting applications to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to focus on radiometal production and radiochemistry (targetry, cyclotron production of radionuclides, radiochemical purification, and radiolabeling).
About the position:
- The selected candidate will help with radiochemical separation and radiolabeling of imaging radionuclides (including but not limited to 44Sc, 89Zr, 45Ti, 64Cu, 68Ga).
- The work for this project will heavily utilize the new and rapidly growing Saskatchewan Centre for Cyclotron Sciences facility (operated by the Fedoruk Centre), which houses an ACSI TR24 cyclotron, hot cells and other radioactive work areas, PET/SPECT/CT, and other ancillary radiochemistry equipment.
- This project is a close collaboration between the Price group at the UofS, Dr. Jonathan Engle at Madison-Wisconsin, and Dr. Valery Radchenko at TRIUMF (Life Sciences).
- The selected candidate will be co-mentored by Drs. Price, Engle, and Radchenko.
- The fellow will be employed by the UofS and based in Saskatoon but will be required to travel semi-frequently between these three sites (funded travel) in the USA and Canada.
- This position is for a funded two-year project, starting with a one-year contract that will be renewed after one year with satisfactory performance.
- The candidate is expected to perform at a high scientific level, work independently, help supervise students, and assist with writing grants and publications.
- Candidate should have a PhD in chemistry, physics, or related disciplines.
- Previous experience in radionuclide production or radiochemistry being ideal but not required.
- Skills in the above-mentioned areas would be ideal but not required.
Interested candidates must submit a CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
