As a successful candidate you are responsible for the medicinal chemistry aspects of our main drug discovery project and will be driving the development of novel drug discovery programs. You are able to design molecules, their synthesis pathways and quality control and you are able to generate and interpret relevant DMPK data, all mostly by means of interactions with CROs.
You are experienced in using this data to iteratively design better molecules, solve DMPK issues and generally steer compound development programs towards success. You excel in working in a structured way, you can manage and organize large amounts of data in ways that ensure IP protection, smooth information exchange and gaining high-level overviews and you are comfortable with presenting medicinal chemistry information to multi-disciplinary teams.
You have experience in drug discovery programs, preferably in a commercial setting.
As a successful candidate you have a strong self-drive and you are able to set and plan tight timelines and budgets. Experience in the very early steps of the discovery pipeline, i.e. assay development and high-throughput screening is considered a pre.
