ETH Zurich is one of the world’s leading universities specialising in science and technology. It is renowned for its excellent education, its cutting-edge fundamental research and its efforts to put new knowledge and innovations directly into practice. The Computer-Assisted Drug Design Group of Prof. Gisbert Schneider at ETH Zürich is seeking a candidate for a Postdoctoral position in Medicinal Chemistry.
Postdoctoral position in Medicinal Chemistry / De Novo Drug Design
We are an interdisciplinary research group positioned between computational design and experimental testing of bioactive compounds. We offer a small but fully equipped organic synthesis laboratory along with a wide range of standard measurement methods such HPLC/SFC or CD as well as biophysical methods such as SPR, DLS, ITC or DSC.
The successful candidate should have excellent knowledge of small molecule organic synthesis and analytics, experience in the aforementioned methods is beneficial. Experience in programming is also considered beneficial, as is knowledge about solid-phase peptide synthesis. While the position is within the area of experimental drug discovery, an affinity towards the computational molecular design methods involved would be welcome.
You will be working in a highly interdisciplinary environment at the interface between chemistry and computer science. The project requires strong interactions with all PhD projects in the group as well as collaborating researchers from other universities and organizations, and the willingness to work as a member of a team. The willingness to support project goals of other team members is mandatory. Candidates should be highly motivated, self-organized, creative, displaying initiative and used to thinking sideways. Excellent command of the English language is expected.
The willingness to assist in the supervision of PhD candidates as well as in teaching duties is expected.
We look forward to receiving your online application including the following documents: (i) a cover letter stating your motivation for this position, (ii) a comprehensive CV including publications and presentations, (iii) diplomas and a list of courses attended, (iv) contact details of referees (optional). Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
