Fixed term for 18 months, available immediately

Project Title:
Realising lead-oriented synthesis

A postdoctoral research fellowship is available to develop novel methods and approaches for preparing lead-like small molecule scaffolds. Supervised by Professor Adam Nelson and Professor Steve Marsden, you will join a major research project that involves collaboration with scientists from the University of Leeds and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

You will have a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry, or will have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the position, and will have a strong interest in the development of robust and general synthetic methods including catalysed processes. You will also have excellent communication and IT skills. Experience in the solution of problems in synthetic organic chemistry and an aptitude to exploit established computational tools to guide molecular design is essential.
