Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm, Sweden) has one open positions for Early Stage Researchers (ESR) to pursue PhD degrees funded for a period of 48 months in Stockholm.

The project entitled Isotopics provides a unique opportunity for an ESR to carry out a PhD research project on radiochemistry with the shortlived radionuclide carbon-11.

Research group

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a translational molecular imaging technique increasingly used in biomedical research and drug development. The PET group at Karolinska Institutet is one of the leading research groups in the world in this area.

The doctoral education project and the duties of the student

Isotopics aims to train the next generation of European chemists with expertise in isotopic labeling and advanced medicinal chemistry through a first-class taught and research training program combined with a highly interactive secondments plan; i) to develop innovative and general isotopic labeling chemistry and radiochemistry to streamline the synthesis of labeled small-molecule drugs and biologics; ii) to work closely with the European pharmaceutical industry to apply the new labeling methods to drugs currently in development in order to provide solutions to the most pressing problems in drug innovation.

We are looking for two motivated and skilled organic chemists that can help us take the next steps in the development of methods for introducing carbon-11 into radioligands for PET imaging. We offer a first class education at Karolinska Institutet in collaboration with our colleagues in the Isotopics network.
