Project Manager

Requisition ID:  2181

Louvain-la-Neuve, BE

Work regime: 
Kind of contract:  Open Ended Contract


Location: Mol

Nuclear medicine has evolved considerably over recent years with the emergence of radiotheranostics, a modality which combines targeted diagnosis and therapy with radio-isotopes. It offers an important and promising alternative in the treatment of many cancers. Radiotheranostics is based on the use of radio-isotopes which, when they disintegrate, emit radiation that enables cancer cells to be precisely located and/or destroyed. Among these radio-isotopes, one of the most promising therapeutic is the alpha-emitting Actinium-225.

One of the main challenges to making this therapeutic solution accessible for the greatest number of patients is ensuring the availability of high-quality Actinium-225 in large quantities. It is often referred within the community as “the rarest drug on Earth”. By joining their unique expertise and resources, SCK CEN and IBA have launched the company PanTera, which aims at enabling the production of Actinium-225.

In this context, PanTera is looking for a talented and experienced project manager to coordinate the design and construction activities of its production process, mainly focusing on irradiation systems.
