One post-doctoral position in Medicinal Chemistry is currently available in the Computational and Chemical Biology Research Line, which involves both computational and medicinal chemists, in the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia.
The open position is for an experienced Medicinal Chemist capable of developing synthetic pathways to obtain stereochemically and structurally diverse small compounds molecules for the inhibition of selected drug targets. Knowledge of contemporary synthetic organic chemistry, especially metal catalyzed cross-coupling reactions, familiarity with modern chromatographic analytical and purification instruments (MS-HPLC, automatized normal phase purification instruments etc.) and experience with the characterization of organic compounds via NMR spectroscopy and/or mass spectrometry are all required.
The candidate must possess a sense of scientific curiosity and be capable of mastering new experimental techniques, as required. He/she will work in close contact with both computational and life science researchers in a cutting-edge multidisciplinary environment with state-of-the-art instrumentations and labs, performing a key role in generating new inhibitors with therapeutic implications and potential for high-impact publications.
The ideal candidate must hold a PhD in organic chemistry or related disciplines and being an outstanding and highly-motivated scientist with a strong record of research productivity. Previous experience in heterocyclic chemistry and/or parallel synthesis will be valued.
Successful candidate will be offered a competitive package commensurate to qualifications and experience.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter including research accomplishments and interests, CV, names and contact information (e-mail, and phone number) of at least two professional references to email@example.com by March 21st, 2018.
