Logistics/warehouse employee (36 hours)

Providing logistical handling of the produced radiopharmaceuticals and radionuclide products



Work environment
V Cyclotron VU is located on the Vrije Universiteit campus in Amsterdam and will soon be moving to the new award-winning (healthcare building of the year 2020) Amsterdam UMC Imaging Center, bringing together laboratories, researchers and practitioners in one building for the first time. This is unique for the Netherlands. The Imaging Center houses state-of-the-art imaging equipment such as MRIs, CT and PET scanners, optical equipment and four cyclotrons or particle accelerators.

Over a quarter of the speed of light: that is how fast the particles in the state-of-the-art cyclotrons in the basement of the Imaging Center move, eventually producing radioisotopes. In the modern GMP facilities, BV Cyclotron VU daily produces radiopharmaceuticals that are used throughout the Netherlands and abroad to detect various forms of cancer, neurological disorders or cardiovascular diseases, as well as for drug efficacy research. Annually, with a team of about 40 employees, we supply diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals to Dutch hospitals, accounting for about 80,000 patients per year.
