#weareradboudumc, what about you?
As a PhD candidate ‘Imaging in diabetes’, you will participate in the international research of the department in the field of imaging in diabetes in close collaboration with researchers from the Diabetes Section of the Department of Internal Medicine.
Currently, the group is conducting clinical trials in people with diabetes aiming at measuring pancreatic beta cell mass and brain activation and correlating the results to the metabolic states of these individuals. In addition, preclinical and clinical research is aiming at imaging of immune processes during the development of diabetes.
The PhD candidate will participate in running research projects and will complete her/his PhD thesis on the use of biomolecules for tracer imaging in diabetes. The PhD candidates’ work will focus on clinical studies but may also conduct preclinical studies including labeling of biomolecules with radionuclides and fluorescent dyes, characterization of the tracers in vivo (including imaging procedures such as PET, SPECT, optical imaging, CT, MRI).
The research of the Department of Medical Imaging is focused on development and clinical application of new labeled drugs for diagnosis and treatment, labeling is done with radionuclides, fluorescent markers and photosensitizers. The Diabetes Section has a track record in therapy trials including...read more

We are looking for an ambitious PhD candidate to strengthen our team. A candidate with a biological, biomedical, medical or medical technology background may be preferred but the call is also open for candidates from other fields.
Experience with beta cell research, development of biomolecules as tracers, conducting clinical trials, imaging techniques and tracer labelling are considered a plus but this experience can also be obtained during the project. Because the project will require close collaboration with clinical departments and patient contact, an affinity with/ interest in clinical research is a prerequisite. It is an advantage (but not a requirement) if applicants are able to conduct preclinical work besides clinical studies.
