(Radio)chemical researcher medical isotopes

In view of our ambition to make medical isotopes available for the development and production of radiopharmaceuticals, we are looking for one:

(Radio)chemical researcher medical isotopes



As a radiochemist you contribute to the development and production of medical isotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. You are responsible for your work related to chemical processing, purification and synthesis of irradiated isotopes into high-quality radiochemicals as well as for characterization.

You will provide substantive support to senior lead scientists or project managers. Depending on your experience, you will plan and divide your work from other research staff. You will also be substantively involved in the realization of the new production facilities of the Field-Lab and small-scale production according to Good Manufacturing Practices of medical isotopes and new radiopharmaceuticals for clinical trials.

From your substantive background, you are familiar with the latest methods and techniques in the field and can translate and propagate these for application in product development and production. As an experienced radiochemist, you fulfil an important role in defining and securing the quality of the content within the projects and for production.

In your work you will use isotopes generated in the High Flux Reactor, and NRG’s radiology and hot cell laboratories in Petten. Based on your area of expertise, you will contribute to the realization of new (production) facilities of the Field-Lab.
