Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den-Ros­sen­dorf e.V.

As a mem­ber of the Helm­holtz Asso­cia­tion of Ger­man Rese­arch Cen­ters, the HZDR employs about 1,400 people. The Cen­ter's focus is on inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch in the areas energy, health and mat­ter.

At the Insti­tute of Radio­phar­maceu­ti­cal Can­cer Rese­arch sci­en­tists from the fields of phy­sics, che­mi­stry, bio­logy, phar­macy, immu­no­logy, medi­cine and IT deve­lop inno­va­tive radio­phar­maceu­ti­cals and novel tools for func­tio­nal cha­rac­te­ri­za­tion, impro­ved ima­ging and per­so­na­li­zed tre­at­ment of tumors.

As part of the Insti­tute, the Depart­ment of Radi­onu­clide Ther­agnostics invi­tes app­li­ca­ti­ons as Post­Doc (f/m/d) Func­tio­n­a­li­za­tion, radio­la­be­ling and cha­rac­te­ri­za­tion of com­plex pro­tein assem­blies.

The posi­tion will be avail­able from 1 Janu­ary 2022. The employ­ment con­tract is limi­ted to two years.
