Subject: 19.01.09 Post-Doctoral Training Fellow - Computational Chemist/Molecular Modeller, ICR, London, UK
The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the worlds most 
influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of 
achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first 
convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying 
the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a 
genetic disease. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads 
the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted 
drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

A Post-Doctoral Training Fellow position in computational chemistry and 
molecular modelling is now available in our In Silico Medicinal Chemistry 
group. The successful candidate will be expected to learn and apply in 
silico medicinal chemistry techniques that impact across the CR-UK Cancer 
Therapeutics Unit portfolio of drug discovery projects. 
The candidate will provide close support to scientists in our Hit Discovery
 and Structural Design Team, and contribute to expand the capabilities of 
the In-Silico medicinal chemistry group.

	Work collaboratively within multidisciplinary project teams to 
design compounds with improved potency, selectivity, functional activity and 
ADMET properties.
	Apply a full-range of computational techniques to address questions 
in drug discovery programs.

	Develop new computational techniques, and implement state-of-the-art 
procedures to expand capabilities of the in silico medicinal chemistry group 
at the ICR, and improve the impact of computer aided drug design on drug 
	Effectively communicate with project teams and senior staff both in 
formal and informal meetings.
	Publish or present original work and/or literature reviews at 
conferences and/or in peer reviewed journals, while maintaining an up to 
date knowledge of literature and recent developments within the field of 
computational chemistry. 

Applicants must have a PhD, which may be in an area of molecular modelling, 
computational chemistry, or cheminformatics, with experience of application of
computational techniques in drug discovery projects. Alternatively, 
applicants may have a PhD in medicinal chemistry or drug design with 
appropriate experience in the use of computational techniques.

The post offered as a full-time fixed-term contract for 2 years, salary range is 
31,023- 39,473 GBP depending on experience. Closing date - 9 February 2019, 23:55.
