The Yale PET Center/Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the Yale School of Medicine invites applications for tenure-track faculty position in chemistry.  The primary role for this position is to establish a portfolio of novel radiopharmaceuticals for applications in radionuclide-based imaging research, therapies, and theranostics, with an emphasis on oncological applications. The selected candidate is expected to build an independent research program consistent with the mission and goals of the PET Center, attracting extramural funding, and collaborating with other investigators in Radiology, other Departments at Yale, and industrial partners in the development of radiopharmaceuticals for preclinical and clinical applications. The incumbent is also expected to work in close collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of scientists and clinicians to advance the applications of radionuclide-based imaging, therapy and theranostics in oncology, psychiatry/neurology, cardiology, immune and metabolic diseases, and other areas of disease research.

The Yale PET Center, located on Howard Avenue in New Haven, CT, is a 22,000 sq. ft. facility established to advance the interests of Yale scientists, clinicians, and students in molecular imaging research.

The Yale PET Center is comprised of a technologically advanced radiochemistry laboratory engaged in the development and use of a rich set of PET radiopharmaceuticals; and an imaging and data analysis section that oversees scanning procedures and optimizes data acquisition and analysis.

The Yale PET Center collaborates with other School of Medicine departments to provide educational opportunities for doctoral and postdoctoral trainees. Collaborations with industry partners serve to advance the use of molecular imaging in new medication discovery and the development of new PET radiopharmaceuticals. Current research interests focus on disorders of the central nervous system (CNS), oncology, cardiology, and diabetes.
