Postdoctoral position in organic chemistry
The laboratory of Dr. Xiaoyuan (Shawn) Chen within the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS), Department of Radiology is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral scholars to develop imaging probes for multimodality imaging and for molecular targeted therapy. Research activities include synthesis (peptides, small organic molecules, macrocyclic chelating agents, near-infrared fluorescent dyes, nanoparticles), bioconjugation, radiolabeling (F-18, C-11, radiohalogenation, and radiometal chelation), and multimodality small animal imaging (PET, SPECT, NIRF, CT, MRI, and US).
Ideal candidates will have Ph.D. with a strong background in organic chemistry, peptide synthesis and a good track record of publication. Applicants must possess good communication skills and be fluent in both spoken and written English. Previous radiochemistry especially PET chemistry experience is essential but not mandatory.
