What you'll be doing
This position will have a key role in expanding CVMED knowledge to understand the complex dynamic phenomena intrinsic to many potential drug mechanisms, and to make traditionally difficult targets an increasingly fruitful drug discovery area. Computational chemists work on drug discovery projects at all stages, from target analysis and lead identification, HTS triage, to lead optimization and candidate compound selection. This position involves the application of molecular dynamics and other computational approaches to develop testable hypotheses about target and drug mechanism of action, to drive compound design and project decision-making, and progress projects. The position also involves the development of new computational approaches to solve specific or general problems in drug discovery. As an independent researcher and integral member of project teams, the incumbent will have opportunities to make numerous direct contributions to drug discovery efforts of the company.
What your background should be
Two or more years of experience working as a computational chemist in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry as a member of drug discovery project teams, with the demonstrated ability to impact drug discovery and optimization utilizing molecular dynamics. A high level of technical skills and knowledge of multiple state of the art molecular dynamics packages with the ability to configure and implement such packages in diverse computing environments.
Required Schooling / Training
Ph. D. in computational chemistry or related field plus 4 years post-doctoral experience or the equivalent pharmaceutical/biotech experience.
Who is the client company
The client is an American multinational pharmaceutical corporation.
