|No. of Position(s)||1|
|Research Area||Medical physics, Nuclear medicine, Molecular imaging|
|Salary||According to standard norms|
|Workplace||Department of Clinical Research|
Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southern Denmark
|Contract Period||One year, with the possibility of extension|
- A Recent PhD degree in medical physics/nuclear medicine/molecular imaging – or similar.
- Full proficiency in spoken and written English.
Experience with handling radioisotopes, PET/MR imaging techniques, compartment modelling/tracer kinetics as well as experience with preclinical animal research will be considered an advantage.
Responsibilities/ Job Description
The project concerns the development of new and promising anticancer agents for targeted radionuclide therapy and PET/MR imaging of brain cancer using radiolabeled nanoparticles. The project will focus on imaging-based evaluation and characterization of the new biocompatible nanoparticles using an advanced brain-cancer pig model. The nanoparticles will be conjugated with positron-emitting radionuclides to allow for their in vivo pharmacokinetic characterization using PET/MR-imaging, compartment modelling and ex vivo autoradiography of tissues. The knowledge obtained in the project will be essential for future translation of our new therapeutic strategy to brain cancer patients.
