Job Interview

OPPORTUNITIES

We have openings for highly qualified individuals at the post-doctoral level with background in preclinical PET molecular imaging and interest in molecular imaging of cancer. Our Center is at the forefront of personalized PET molecular imaging and we are working to pioneer novel precision imaging and therapy approaches. We have a long-standing interest in developing and translating targeted biological PET probes for improved tumor characterization for personalizing cancer treatment and autoimmune conditions. Over the past decade, we have produced many PET and optical imaging probes for assessing immune system activation, receptor imaging, imaging of the tumor microenvironment and interrogation of metabolome. Our group has led some of the first efforts to diagnose therapeutic resistance through receptor imaging and feedback loop signaling, monitor and predict the immune response in cancer immunotherapy and utilize targeted imaging to determine effective therapy dosing, among others. These efforts have led to two first-in-human imaging agents, most recently 68Ga-NOTA-hGZP for imaging granzyme B, currently in open trials for clinical validation.

 

Selected candidate(s) will be involved in a wide range of preclinical imaging projects using our proprietary PET probes for imaging and therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals for treatment of cancer. Candidates should have a PhD degree and ideally previous experience in PET image acquisition, image analysis, radiolabeling with radiometals, working with small animal models and basic wet lab skills. Proficiency in scientific writing is strongly desired. Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV (including a full list of publications), a statement of research interests and goals and the contact information for 3 referees. Please send your application through our CONTACT page or MGH.Precision.Imaging@gmail.com.
