Postdoctoral Research Associate in Translational Radiopharmacy

Department :    
Imaging, Chemistry & Biology

The National Cancer Imaging Translational Accelerator funded by Cancer Research UK addresses the gaps in translation of imaging biomarkers either as tools for clinical trials or to aid clinical decision making. NCITA brings together seven of the leading cancer imaging centres (Cambridge, Imperial, ICR, KCL, Manchester, Oxford and UCL) through a network of imaging dedicated cross-institutional infrastructure. 

We are looking to recruit a radiopharmacist or radiochemist to work in the QA/QC support unit of the NCITA network. The QA/QC unit will support the development of Imaging Biomarkers from first-in-man application to achieving multi-site reproducibility assessment.

The postholder will be involved with translation of Imaging Biomarkers from lab-based preparation to GMP production for clinical trials. In some cases this may involve pre-clinical studies such as development of radiolabelling methods, quality control and in vitro and in vivo testing of emerging cancer tracers (e.g. using nanoSPECT and nanoPET imaging). The data generated will support regulatory approval for clinical translation.

The post will be based at St Thomas' Hospital but will travel to and support all sites in the network as needed.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract until 31/12/19. 
This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent 
The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation.
