Alexandra Litvinenko: ESR-12
ESR 12 CH1
36 months (Starting Date October 2015)
WP2, D2.CH1 (or D2.CH2?): Development and investigation of bimodal imaging probes for ovarian cancer in animal models
Type of Position
Early Stage Researcher/PhD positions
A mobility rule applies to this position. The respective candidate must not have worked for more than 12 months in Switzerland within the last three years. Furthermore, the candidate needs to be in his/her first four years of his/her research career. The four years are counted from the date a degree was obtained which formally entitles to embark on a doctorate.
The ESR will be in charge of participating in the development of radiolabelled imaging tracers as part of a joint project with EPFL for bifunctional fluorescent and radioactive ligand for ovarian cancer. The ESR will participate in the development of methodology and validation of preclinical techniques. He/she will be responsible of seeking new methodological techniques and animal experimental imaging protocols that are suitable for the new compounds that are being evaluated. The work will be performed at the University hospital of Geneva and the Institute of Translational Molecular Imaging (ITMI).
Expertise in chemical sciences with strong motivation to be involved in the study of metal–based compounds for biomedical applications. The candidate would ideally have experience in organic/inorganic chemistry. Furthermore, candidates that have some experience (or at least a strong interest) in radiochemistry and/or cell biology will be favoured
According to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN rules: about 4200 CHF/month including mobility allowance or 4700CHF/month including mobility and family allowance (registered partner and/or child).
