Drug Discovery Lead, New York

United States   •  US$80000 - US$250000 per annum  •  Permanent, Full time


My client, a fully privately funded research group in the US, is currently recruiting for Drug Discovery Lead's as well as computational chemists and Force Field Programmers with varying levels of experience (from 5 to 35 years' experience) to work on a number of drug discovery projects.

This role offers a highly competitive salary package and will provide a very good opportunity to work on and lead a number of drug discovery projects, using some very advanced resources including supercomputers, and have a strategic input into the research undertaken.

The company is looking for people with a strong background in computational drug discovery within industry, ideally with experience of leading teams and projects, who can provide a 'big-picture' viewpoint and help them to drive their research forward in a number of areas.

My client is particularly interested in seeing people with both medicinal and computational chemistry experience, and those with a strong publication/patent record.

Candidates must have a PhD in computational or medicinal chemistry (or a very closely related field) and at least 5 years' experience within the pharmaceutical industry (not academia) working as a computational chemist on drug discovery projects, although more experience is strongly preferred.

Candidates with strong medicinal chemistry experience and some computational chemistry experience within industry will also be considered.

Visa sponsorship is available for this position, but only strong candidates will be considered for this.
