from the announcement:

“We are seeking a candidate with a preferred strong academic background in nuclear science or nuclear engineering, such as might be attained via a Ph.D. degree program, and past experience in radiological/nuclear (R/N) detection. The candidate should be able to analyze R/N threats and related detection problems in order to provide operational, scientific and policy solutions to the Contingency and Exercises Department and supported units. The candidate’s background in R/N detection development and detection theory should accompany the ability to effectively communicate and instruct both technical and non-technical audiences, from the individual to the senior official level, in conducting effective R/N search operations. The prospective candidate should have experience in the interpretation of both detection and spectroscopic R/N data, and the operational recommendations that would accompany data analysis and interpretation. The focus of this position is not research, but instead is the training, advising and assisting of tactical units while deployed into a wide variety of environments.”

NUCL Business Meeting

Dear NUCL members, 

Given the format of the Fall ACS meeting, we were unable to hold our NUCL Business Meeting at that time.  Therefore, I invite all members to participate in our virtual NUCL Business meeting on Sunday, October 25, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. EST (6:00 p.m. CST/5:00 p.m. MST/4:00 p.m. PST). This is an informational session to provide details on programming, budget, and related news to our members.  For this meeting, we will also be conducting a listening session for our members to provide insight and guidance on the future of the NUCL division. We strongly encourage students and postdoctoral scholars to attend.  As a bonus, we will also have a prize to give away for one lucky participant! 

The zoom information is given below.  NOTE: You will need the passcode below to join the meeting.   

Topic: NUCL Virtual Business meeting 

Time: Oct 25, 2020 06:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

The Radionuclide Production and Molecular Radiotherapy Research Laboratories in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA) is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral scholar research position in radionuclide production for molecular radiotherapy. Our research group develops and evaluates radiochemistry methods that can be applied to produce and purify therapeutic and theranostic radionuclides, as well as development of radiolabeling reagents/chelators used for attaching radionuclides to biological targeting molecules, such as monoclonal antibodies for cancer therapy.  Preclinical research in astatine-211-labeled MAbs conducted by our group has been translated to the clinic and is presently being evaluated in multiple human studies.

The University of Washington Medical Cyclotron Facility is capable of producing variable energy proton, deuteron, alpha and high energy neutron beams for radionuclide production. The Postdoctoral Scholar in our research group will collaborate with UW Materials Science research groups and cyclotron engineers to develop new target designs for irradiations. It is planned that the candidate will visit and work with our collaborators at Los Alamos National Laboratory and University of Missouri to develop purification and radiolabeling methods for the production of medical radionuclides. The radiopharmaceuticals under development will be evaluated in animal models through collaborations with investigators in other research groups at the UW and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The initial appointment is one year, with an anticipated start date of August 1, 2020, and the appointment is renewable depending upon performance and availability of funding.
