Subject: 18.03.09 Postdoctoral Position in Cheminformatics - Syngenta, Berkshire, UK
Postdoctoral Research in Computational Chemistry [Ref: PDCC2] Jealotts Hill International Research Centre - competitive salary based on experience We have an exciting vacancy for a postdoctoral researcher in Computational Chemistry. In this role, you will provide cheminformatics and mathematical modeling support as part of a cross-functional team. The primary role of this position is to build and use models to predict endpoints relevant to agrochemical research based on chemical structure, descriptors and/or properties. You will be working within a wider project aiming to use models to identify high quality compounds in a streamlined and efficient way, influencing chemical synthesis priorities in search of novel active ingredients. The Job entails: - Building predictive models relating chemical structure and/or properties to endpoints relevant for agrochemical research (such as environmental safety, human safety and biological efficacy) - Liaison with functional representatives to understand data and modelling requirements - Interrogation and curation of data for model building - Developing and deploying predictive models to end users - Communicating and documenting model development Critical Experience and Skills: - A PhD or equivalent in cheminformatics or a related field - Understanding of chemical structure and properties - Knowledge of applied statistical methods for data analysis (univariate and multivariate methods) - Experience in predictive modelling (such as multiple linear regression, machine learning e.g., SVM, random forest) - Experience with R and/or python essential (experience with work flow tools such as KNIME, pipeline pilot desirable) - Knowledge relating to kinetic modelling (in either environmental or mammalian systems) would be advantageous. If not, willingness to learn is a requirement. - Ability to communicate across functional boundaries This position will be for a period of 12 months with the possibility to extend. Syngenta is one of the worlds leading companies with more than 28,000 employees in over 90 countries dedicated to one purpose: bringing plant potential to life. We contribute to addressing some of the planets most critical issues such as the rising demand for food from a growing population. Our scientists work in a focused, highly collaborative culture and benefit from the training, development and inspirational colleagues that youd expect to find in a fast growing, international company.
