Nottinghamshire   •  £25000 - £30000 per annum  •  Permanent, Full time

My client, a leading pharmaceutical researcher in the Nottinghamshire area, is looking to recruit a Synthetic Organic Chemist.

For either role, the candidate will ideally be educated to PhD level in Synthetic Organic or Medicinal Chemistry, with consideration given to a BSc/MSc in Chemistry with previous experience in the pharmaceutical research industry. For the more senior position, candidates should possess a degree of experience in previous drug development, clinical research and/or relevant participation in post-doctoral studies. Proven experience with laboratory drug research techniques is paramount to the role, and a demonstrable history of leadership would be advantageous.

All applicants should first and foremost have a deep passion for synthetic and medicinal chemistry, and the knowledge and confidence to design and implement complex synthetic passaging. The applicant should be comfortable with both written and verbal communication, as well as the ability to work in a team environment. Experience in small molecule drug discovery, and in vivo and in vitro studies would be highly beneficial.
