An opportunity for a Junior Specialist with at least one year of experience as a full-time member/employee of a research laboratory.

You will be expected to follow published or developed synthetic routes to new small molecules and conduct the appropriate characterization studies. In addition, I expect you to conduct studies to determine the properties of these new radiotracers in vitro and in vivo. A major component of these studies are biological in nature, and require techniques like cell culture, real time PCR, immunoblot, saturation binding assays, flow cytometry, in vivo imaging and biodistribution, and small animal experiments (e.g. drug dosing and survival surgery). You are also expected to provide support to the lab in the form of ordering supplies, maintaining an up to date chemical inventory, and ensuring that yourself and the lab is compliant with safety protocols.
The candidate must have a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent degree) or at least four years of research experience.
