(Radio)chemical researcher medical isotopes


As a radiochemist you contribute to the development and production of medical isotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic application. You are responsible for your work on, among other things, the chemical processing, purification and synthesis of irradiated isotopes into high-quality radio chemicals as well as for characterization.

You give substantive support to senior lead scientists or project managers. Depending on your experience, plan and divide your work from other research staff. You are also 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 studies.

From your substantive background, you are aware of the latest methods and techniques in the field and can translate and propagate them for application in product development and production. As an experienced radio chemist, you play an important role in defining and securing the quality of content within the projects and for production.

As a (radio) chemist you contribute to various projects with a great responsibility for your work. The projects are all challenging, combined with strict requirements for safety and quality. We want you to learn from the experts from the field and you will be intensively supervised by your team manager. This will help you with your development in the field and building a network. Together with you, a personal development plan is drawn up and designed.
