Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in Drug Discovery and Chemical Biology at University of Cambridge, 2012 UK

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate to work with Professor Chris Abell and Professor Tom Blundell (Department of Biochemistry) using fragment-based approaches to discover molecules that inhibit enzymes from Mycobacterium tuberculosis (see Angew. Chemie Intl. Ed. 2009, 48, 8452-8456 for an example of our work). The project will involve the synthesis of enzyme inhibitors using fragment-based approaches, and is part of a larger drug discovery initiative.

Applicants should have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in organic chemistry. Proven expertise in synthetic organic chemistry is essential; some knowledge of enzymology and drug discovery would be advantageous.

Deadline: 14 September 2012
