Radiochemistry Research Fellow


The Gordon Center for Medical Imaging in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) in Boston, Massachusetts, has an opening for highly qualified individuals at the post-doctoral level to work on research related to the synthesis of small molecule PET radio-pharmaceuticals under the mentorship of Dr. Pedro Brugarolas. The Department of Radiology at MGH is equipped with a cyclotron for the production of 11C and 18F and state-of-the-art chemistry and radio-chemistry facilities. The Department also has several PET cameras to evaluate novel radiopharmaceuticals in animals and humans.

Applicants must have obtained or anticipate soon receiving a Ph.D. in radiochemistry, organic chemistry, or related field. Strong synthetic and analytical skills are essential (e.g., NMR, MS, HPLC, etc). Prior experience with 11C- and 18F-labeling is advantageous. The successful candidate will have joint appointments at MGH and HMS. If interested, please send your CV, letter describing interests, background, and qualifications via email to both of the addresses below. Please arrange to have 3 letters of recommendation sent directly to both emails as well. The position is funded through an institutional T32 NIH award and is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

MGH & HMS are equal-opportunity, affirmative action employers. Women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply.
