Postdoctoral Research Associate in Radiochemistry and Molecular Imaging
Molecular Imaging Hub, St. Jude Children´s Research Hospital, Memphis (TN), USA
The Neumann lab is seeking candidates for a full-time postdoctoral research associate. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing novel imaging agents for use in Positron Emission Tomography (PET). Current projects in the Neumann lab focus on cancer, infectious disease, and oxidative stress imaging in various preclinical models. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in synthetic chemistry and radiochemistry, relevant cell culture training, some experience in small animal work, and an interest in in vivo imaging and translational science. The successful applicant will work as part of a collaborative team and will have access to a wide range of equipment, including a DOI PET/CT scanner, PET/MRI, focused ultrasound (FUS), on-site cyclotron, 18F and 11C synthesis modules, hot cells, liquid scintillation equipment, automated HPLCs and more. A dedicated cell and molecular biology laboratory, fully equipped for biological assays, will also be available. The candidate will also be cross-trained in Focused Ultrasound techniques to improve delivery of novel radiopharmaceuticals to the Central Nervous System.
Individuals interested in applying should submit:
- Current CV
- Research Statement summarizing how your planned research aligns with career goals (1 page or less)
- Three letters of recommendation
