Computational Chemist 

The Drug Discovery Unit (DDU) (see http://www.drugdiscovery.dundee.ac.uk)
is a fully integrated drug discovery operation based within a world class
Life Sciences research environment. The DDU houses about 100 scientists
structured in discipline focused teams (Medicinal Chemistry, Structural 
Biology, Computational Chemistry, Biophysical Screening, Biology, 
Compound Management, ADME/PK). Its remit is to complement BioPharma 
activities by tackling both neglected diseases (apicomplexan, 
tuberculosis and kinetoplastid disease) and validation of novel targets 
and mechanisms across a range of potential therapeutic areas. The DDU 
works to Biotech style philosophy and standards incorporating, dynamic, 
goal driven project management based on Target Product Profiles and 
Compound Selection Criteria. The project goals are therapeutic area 
dependent but range from quality leads demonstrating disease model 
proof of concept, through to pre-clinical candidates. The DDU 
Computational Chemistry Team is looking for a highly motivated 
Computational Chemist. The successful candidate will work as part of our
multi-disciplinary drug discovery teams contributing to compound design 
from the hit discovery process to lead optimisation and, together with 
the other Computational Chemists, to drive the development of 
computational methods for compounds optimisation. The post is open 
ended and available immediately. Starting salary from 32,236 to 39,609
depending on experience. A relocation allowance is available.

Necessary skills and experience:

- Highly motivated, self-directed individuals professionally qualified 
with a PhD in computational chemistry, bio/cheminformatics, or a 
related topic. 

- Strong scientific background with an understanding of the Drug 
Discovery process 

- Experience in both structure-based and ligand-based drug discovery 

- A sound knowledge of commercial molecular modelling software 
(e.g. Schrodinger), data visualisation (e.g. Vortex) and pipelining 
tools (e.g. PipelinePilot, Knime) 

- Ability to work independently, and in close collaboration with 
discovery scientists as part of a team 

- Good time management, organizational and communication skills. 

- Strong interpersonal, communication and presentation skills

Desirable Experience:

 - Excellent knowledge in at least one programming or scripting language 
(Python, Perl, Java, R and R-Shiny) 

 - Experience in the creation of data workflows as well as data analysis 
and interpretation. 

 - Quantum Mechanics/Molecular Dynamics in drug discovery 

 - Exposure to drug discovery projects
