The candidate should hold a PhD in Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Pharmacy or Medicine, or equivalent and should have a proven track record in R&D.
The candidate should have either experience in the area of nuclear medicine (radiochemistry, radiopharmacy, PET/SPECT imaging or radiobiology etc) or in molecular biology (bacterial fermentation, recombinant DNA technology, protein purification, antibody functionality assays etc). Candidates with knowledge in both fields are particularly encouraged to apply. Experience with animal models of diabetes and a certificate to participate in animal studies (FELASA B or higher) are extra assets.
The candidate should speak and write English fluently. Knowledge of the Dutch or French language is an extra asset but not required. The candidate should be able to work with general Office computer programs.
We are seeking a researcher who is highly motivated to independently execute and report on the various milestones and deliverables of a particular research project.
The candidate will be working at different laboratory sites in and around Brussels and should be very mobile. A driver license and the possession of a car is an advantage but not required. The candidate is expected to work in a multidisciplinary research team and should therefore be highly communicative.
The candidate is expected to endorse the educational vision of the university (full text available on the university website).
Female candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.
