Within the new Nuclear Medical Applications (NMA) institute, SCK CEN is putting considerably more effort into the fight against cancer.

NMA contributes to the development and delivery of next-generation radiopharmaceuticals.

Infrastructure for the production of Lu-177 according to GMP guidelines is currently under development.

We are looking for a motivated Production Operator to join our team in the new radiopharmaceutical production facility in both the development and operational phases.

As a Production Operator, you will play a critical role in performing and supporting the cGMP production activities of radiopharmaceuticals inside and outside Grade C cleanrooms.


  • Operate and monitor production equipment and processes using automated and manual systems.
  • Ensure that appropriate equipment and materials are available to carry out work in a timely manner to avoid production delays.
  • Pack, label and ship outgoing goods.
  • Perform routine cleaning and disinfection schedules before, after and during production.
  • Ensure waste materials are disposed of properly in accordance with procedures.
  • Report all problems that may affect product integrity and quality to the Production Manager.

To join this frontier, you'll need

  • Bachelor's degree in a scientific discipline
  • Experience in a manufacturing environment, preferably within a cleanroom or controlled work environment (pharmaceutical and/or nuclear sector).
  • Experience in working with hot cell equipment or telemanipulators will be an advantage.
  • Excellent organisational skills and attention to detail.
  • Demonstrate a collaborative style in day-to-day work while motivating others.
  • Ability to work with minimal supervision and guidance, with a degree of independence.
  • Ability to work under pressure and set priorities.
  • Flexibility with regard to working hours, as working in a discontinuous two-shift system is required upon start-up of production and possible evolution to a full-time system.
