Postdoc/Senior Scientist Position in Bioinorganic Radiochemistry

The institute of inorganic chemistry offers a position (40 h/w) to a highly motivated PostDoc in the area of bioinorganic radiochemistry at the University of Vienna and the Joint Applied Medicinal Radiochemistry Facility of the University of Vienna and the Medical University Vienna. The candidate will work in an interdisciplinary environment in cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna. The position is advertised for 4,5 years after successful evaluation after 2,5 years. A permanent position afterwards is possible

The research of the working group of Prof. Mindt involves the development of radiopharmaceuticals (radiotracers) based on metallic radionuclides. Candidates with a radiopharmaceutical/chemical background and the desire to get involved in cutting-egde, application-driven and translational research are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will develop and investigate novel radiotracers for diagnostic and/or therapeutic application in oncology. He or she will also take part in the chemical and biological evaluation of the new compounds in vitro and in vivo.

Active participation in research, teaching and administration is expected. This involves – Developing and strengthening the independent research profile – Involvement in research projects / research studies – International publications and presentations – Responsibility for project management and the acquisition of third-party funding – Preparing / writing a (publication-ready) habilitation thesis – Independent teaching of courses as defined by the collective agreement – Supervision of students – Participation in evaluation measures and quality assurance – Involvement in the department administration as well as in teaching and research administration

Minimum requirement profile – Ph.D degree in Radiopharmaceutical/chemical Sciences or equivalent. Know-how in the design of radiotzracers, conducting radiometal-labelling reactions and analysis of the radiolabelled products (e.g., gamma-TLC&HPLC, stability assays). High ability to express yourself both orally and in writing – Excellent command of written and spoken English – IT user skills – Ability to work in a team

Additional qualification profile – Experience in conducting biological assays (in vitro/in vivo), bioconjugate chemistry, peptide chemistry and or working with proteins would be advantageous.
