The “Molecular Imaging Research and Clinic Leuven” (MIRACLE) is a collaboration between the Laboratory for Radiopharmaceutical Research and Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging at KU Leuven that aims to develop, validate, and apply molecular imaging tools (PET/SPECT) for early and differential diagnosis, prognosis, therapy monitoring, understanding pathophysiological mechanisms and performing proof-of-concept studies in drug development. For preclinical studies, state-of-the-art multimodal (hybrid) imaging equipment (microPET-CT and microSPECT-CT) is available along with full facilities for handling radionuclide therapy in the preclinical setting.To support preclinical research and provide support for users of this PET/SPECT/CT infrastructure as well as the development and testing of novel theranostic agents, the consortium seeks a laboratory technologist with ideally knowledge of radiotracer-based image acquisition, preclinical laboratory management and a demonstrated ability to support in vitro cell culture, in vitro biological assays and in vivo model development.

We are offering full-time employment in a research group with challenging goals and plans. You will work in Leuven, a historic, dynamic, and lively city located in the heart of Belgium, within 20 minutes from Brussels. You will be managed by permanent staff from Laboratory Radiopharmacy (Prof F.Cleeren) and Nuclear Medicine (Dr C. Cawthorne). The position will start for 2 years but can be prolonged open-term in a fee-for-service operational model.
• If you can take up all responsibilities from the start, you will be appointed in Grade 5. If you're a promising colleague who can't quite take up the full list or needs initial training, you'll be appointed in Grade 4
