PET-Radiochemist, Assistant Professor of Radiology, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA
The Department of Imaging at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) is seeking an expert in radiochemistry to establish an independent research laboratory, with an appointment as a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. A research focus on positron emission tomography (PET) imaging using novel tracers and targeting moieties is desirable. Of particular interest to the institution would be translational research that enhances the ability to visualize key cellular and subcellular markers that are important in the interaction of immunotherapeutic strategies against cancerous tissues.
A generous package of support and laboratory space will be provided for successful candidates to allow his/her research to thrive in a nurturing academic and clinical environment. DFCI offers competitive salaries and an outstanding personal and professional benefits package.
DFCI also offers outstanding, state-of-the-art facilities to conduct this research program, including, among others, the Molecular Cancer Imaging Facility (MCIF), housing a fully staffed preclinical cyclotron, and the Lurie Cancer Imaging Facility (LCIF), housing small animal imaging PET/CT and SPECT/CT imaging systems. The cyclotron at MCIF is currently being upgraded to a GMP facility. In addition, a clinical cyclotron is available at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
The successful candidate for this position should have a Ph.D. in the area of chemistry/radiochemistry. Experience in labeling of antibodies and antibody fragments (minibodies, nanobodies) with PET radiotracers, as well as experience with PET imaging in animal models, or an interest in immunotherapy research is desirable. Excellent communication skills and team-building and collaborative efforts would be additional valuable strengths.
Review of applications will begin immediately with submissions open until February 08, 2019. All application materials, including your CV and a letter describing qualifications, should be submitted by email to “Department of Imaging Faculty Search Committee”, c/o email@example.com.
