McMaster University: Radiochemistry and/or Radiopharmaceutical Sciences

Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Radiochemistry and/or Radiopharmaceutical Sciences

 

McMaster University is located on the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee and Mississauga Nations, and within the lands protected by the Dish with One Spoon wampum agreement.


Position Description

McMaster University, a world-leader in medical isotope and radiopharmaceutical research, invites applicants for a new faculty position in the general area of radiochemistry and radiopharmaceutical sciences in the Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology.  This is a tenure track full time faculty position at the Assistant Professor level, effective July 1st, 2022.

The University has identified Nuclear, including all work involving medical isotopes, as a priority area. The position will join an established radiopharmaceutical research program, which includes outstanding staff and infrastructure notably a dedicated high-level radiation research facility, cyclotron, nuclear reactor, and modern radiopharmaceutical research laboratories. The University is also host to the Centre for Probe Development and Commercialization (CPDC) which has a successful track record of moving radiopharmaceuticals from the bench to the bedside and creating new spinout companies.

While collaborating with the existing team and leveraging the unique research environment and tools, the successful candidate is expected to establish an independent research program and explore new avenues of independent medical isotope, radiochemistry and radiopharmaceutical research. Work that has the potential to be cross-disciplinary will be regarded as an additive asset.


The candidate will have access to cyclotron and reactor-derived isotopes and radiochemistry facilities at McMaster, which include licensed labs and modern discovery and characterization tools. This $22M facility is licensed to handle a wide range of isotopes and is equipped to perform chemical, biological and pre-clinical imaging studies.

Applicants should clearly demonstrate potential to develop a prominent, externally funded research program and a commitment to excellence in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.   We are seeking candidates who have a doctoral degree and relevant post-doctoral experience in radiochemistry, radiopharmaceutical sciences or a closely related field, as well as a promising record of research scholarship and productivity. 


The Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology, with a contingent of 29 full-time faculty members, conducts leading-edge research and top-tier training of students in all areas of chemistry, and has achieved major breakthroughs in physical, inorganic, theoretical, analytical, and organic chemistry.  We boast world-class facilities and instrumentation and maintain rich collaborative relationships with many McMaster research institutes including the McMaster Nuclear Reactor, the Biointerfaces Institute, the Institute for Infectious Diseases Research, and Brockhouse Institute
for Materials Research.


McMaster University is a globally renowned institution of higher learning and a research community committed to advancing human and societal health and well-being. Our focus on collaboratively exchanging ideas and approaches makes us uniquely positioned to pioneer ground-breaking solutions to real-world problems leading to a Brighter World. The Faculty of Science works to create global impact by advancing scientific discovery and knowledge, and promoting greater understanding. Our innovative, interdisciplinary approach generates new methods and insights, results, and lasting change. 

Progressive policies are in place to assist faculty members to achieve a work-life balance.  Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.


Commitment to Inclusive Excellence

The diversity of our workforce is at the core of our innovation and creativity and strengthens our research and teaching excellence. In keeping with its Statement on Building an Inclusive Community with a Shared Purpose, McMaster University strives to embody the values of respect, collaboration and diversity, and has a strong commitment to employment equity. 

The University seeks qualified candidates who share our commitment to equity and inclusion, who will contribute to the diversification of ideas and perspectives, and especially welcomes applications from First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples, members of racialized communities (“visible minorities”), persons with disabilities, women, persons who identify as 2SLGBTQ+.
