Applications are invited from enthusiastic and talented individuals for a PhD scholarship in radiochemistry at the Hevesy Laboratory at Risø DTU.
The Hevesy Laboratory is a radiochemical and radiopharmaceutical facility at Risø DTU. The laboratory has a 16.5 MeV cyclotron equipped with a beam line for in-house production of isotopes, including 18F for PET scanning. The research laboratories and clean rooms feature state of the art equipment for radioactive and stable isotope chemistry.
At present, we are 20 people in a multidisciplinary team, working with both research and production. Among the research activities currently conducted are 18F chemistry, tritium chemistry and Auger emitting nuclides for therapy.
Drawing on recent advances in organic-, organometallic- and radiochemistry the successful candidate will explore new methods of 18F-C bond formation using 18F fluoride. The research will also include the development of new methodologies for extraction of 18F-fluoride from target water and converting it into an efficient fluorination source.
Candidates should have (or be about to obtain) a master`s degree in engineering, radiochemistry, organic- or organometallic chemistry or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master`s degree in engineering. The candidate should also demonstrate a strong commitment to research.
Approval and Enrolment The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide.
