Research Associate / Research Fellow in Radiochemistry for Cell and Nanomedicine Imaging
The role is to perform radiochemistry and related research in the field of nanomedicine and cell PET imaging, and provide specialist expertise as a chemist within a multidisciplinary EPSRC-funded Programme: Next Generation Molecular Imaging and Therapy with Radionuclides (MITHRAS), based at King’s College London, Imperial College London and the University of Southampton.
The post holder will have the specific role of developing and applying radiochemistry tools to efficiently radiolabel and track nanomedicines and therapeutic cells in vivo using positron emission tomography (PET) imaging.
The team will include specialists in radionuclide production, nanodrug and cell therapy researchers, organic and inorganic radiochemists, and molecular imaging biologists, and will be embedded within a wider collaborative network comprising the Imaging Chemistry and Biology Department and the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences at King’s, and a network of major internal and external collaborations with other major London universities and hospitals. The aim of the programme is to develop new chemistry for fast, accessible synthesis of radiopharmaceuticals, and translate this into clinically translatable products for imaging and radionuclide therapy.
