Postdoctoral Scholar - Radionuclide Production and Molecular Radiotherapy Research Laboratories, Radiation Oncology

The Radionuclide Production and Molecular Radiotherapy Research Laboratories in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA) is seeking candidates for a Postdoctoral Scholar research position in the areas of radionuclide production and radiolabeling of biomolecules for molecular radiotherapy. Our research group develops and evaluates radiochemistry methods that can be applied to produce and purify therapeutic and theranostic radionuclides, as well as development of radiolabeling reagents/chelators used for attaching radionuclides to biological targeting molecules, such as monoclonal antibodies for cancer therapy. Preclinical research in astatine-211-labeled monoclonal antibodies conducted by our group and collaborators at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has been translated to the clinic and is presently being evaluated in multiple clinical trials.
