Junior Research Position for the ENSAR2 European Project/TecHIBA, innovative medical radioisotope studies at the Heavy Ion Laboratory, University of Warsaw

An 6-month position for a PhD student or Post-Doctoral candidate is open within the ENSAR2/Techiba JRA workpackage programme related to investigations of the production yield and purity of innovative medical radioisotopes produced using the accelerators of the Heavy Ion Laboratory, University of Warsaw (HIL UW, http://slcj.uw.edu.pl/). The successful candidate will be employed by HIL UW starting from November 1, 2019 as a researcher.

The successful candidate will participate in target preparation, cyclotron beam irradiations, gamma-ray spectra collection and evaluation, thick target yield calculations and isotopic purity determinations. The results obtained will be compared with theoretical calculations based on reaction code predictions.

The Heavy Ion Laboratory is located at the heart of the Ochota scientific campus of the University of Warsaw which offers a multi-disciplinary environment with the Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics faculties and the Biological and Chemical Research Centre nearby. The Warsaw Medical University is also located on the Ochota scientific campus. We collaborate closely with the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, situated a few kilometres from our Laboratory. This Institute employs our radioisotopes, produced using the K=160 heavy ion and PETtrace medical cyclotrons, for the preparation of research quantities of innovative radiopharmaceuticals.

Candidates interested in the position should send by e-mail their applications (letter of motivation including a brief description of previous work experience, curriculum vitae, school leaving certificate, university degree including grades, publication list including poster presentations) to:

dr Paweł J. Napiorkowski (pjn@slcj.uw.edu.pl)
Heavy Ion Laboratory, University of Warsaw, Pasteura 5a, 02-093 Warszawa, Poland

before September, 28. Letters of recommendation from the candidate’s previous research leader or current supervisor are welcome and should be sent to the above address.
