Postdoctoral position in Medicinal Chemistry
One post-doctoral position in Medicinal Chemistry is available in the Molecular Modeling and Drug Discovery Research Line led by Dr. Marco De Vivo, at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia
open position is for an experienced medicinal chemist capable of
developing synthetic pathways to obtain stereochemically and
structurally diverse small compounds for the inhibition of selected drug
targets. The position requires knowledge of contemporary synthetic
organic chemistry, including 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.
candidate must possess a sense of scientific curiosity and be capable of
mastering new experimental techniques, as required. He/she must be able
to work independently, as well as mentor junior colleagues. He/she will
work in close contact with both computational and experimental
researchers in a cutting-edge multidisciplinary environment with
state-of-the-art instrumentations and labs. He/she will play a relevant
role in generating new inhibitors with therapeutic implications, which
will generate patent applications and high-impact publications.
Scientifics writing and patent drafting will thus be required.
ideal candidate must possess a PhD in organic chemistry or related
disciplines with at least three years of postdoctoral experience, 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.
Excellent English communication skills, creativity and marked enthusiasm for research are mandatory.
Salary and benefits will be in line with international standards.
