We are seeking post-docs with expertise in molecular modeling and medicinal chemistry to work in the Center for Antiviral Medicines and Pandemic Preparedness (CAMPP), a highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary drug discovery project. The goal is to identify new drug candidates against viruses with high pandemic potential, including SARS-CoV-2.
The post-docs will work with expert virologists, chemists, pharmacologists, and structural biologist, providing computational support to the drug discovery and optimization process. Ph.D. in relevant scientific disciplines (medicinal chemistry, physics, chemistry, biology) are preferred, but others can be considered if appropriate motivation is provided.
Basic knowledge of Python is highly recommended.
If you are interested in applying, please send an application letter, along with two or more recommendation letters.
