Job Description

Dr. Jan Grimm’s Oncologic Molecular Imaging Lab (https://www.jgrimmlab.org) is housed in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and affiliated with the Department of Radiology at MSK. We are seeking talented and motivated postdoctoral researchers. The candidate will have the opportunity to train in a stimulating and multi-disciplinary diverse environment employing synthetic chemistry and radiochemistry, molecular imaging, nanotechnology, biology, and cutting-edge imaging techniques aiming to translate novel imaging approaches into the clinic.

Candidates for this position have recently obtained their PhD with knowledge or interest in positron-emission tomography (PET) as a diagnostic and research tool. We are interested in the development of multiplexed PET technology, which allows for the simultaneous detection of multiple probes, thus allowing two or more biological signatures to be independently monitored by a single PET scan. This multiplexed approach relies upon software-based analysis to distinguish decay patterns of radiotracers and does not require specialized equipment, and thus is broadly applicable to existing clinical scanners. This research is highly interdisciplinary, and ideal candidates should have at least some research experience in radiochemistry, computer science and electrical engineering. Additional experience in cancer biology and immunology is beneficial. Candidates should share a passion for scientific research.

As a postdoc in the lab, all hires will be expected to:

    • work independently and in collaboration with other members of the lab
    • design and conduct bench experiments and animal research experiments
    • analyze data and draw logical conclusions
    • compose research manuscripts and reviews for publication
    • assist the PI with grant and funding proposal preparation

Interested applicants should provide:

    1. a single page statement describing the applicant’s scientific interests and suitability for the position
    2. a curriculum vitae (CV)
    3. names and contact information for three (3) references

Please send all application materials directly to:
