Subject: 21.07.07 Computational Chemist in Drug Discovery (Senior Scientist) / Selvita, Poland
Selvita is a global integrated drug discovery partner for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries 
with offices in Cambridge, UK, Greater Boston Area, San Francisco Bay Area, Krakow, and Poznan, Poland. 
The company offers drug discovery support at every stage of the early discovery phase up to the preclinical 
research phase.

Due to constant development, currently, we are seeking candidates for the position of Senior Scientist 
in the Computational Chemistry Team in Krakow, Poland. This is a unique opportunity to develop and work 
with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment. 

Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of various computational methods to drug discovery, 
investigation of conformational changes relevant to the function of protein kinases, ion channels, or other biomolecules, 
structural modeling of protein-protein complexes involved in signal transduction, or other cellular processes.  
However, specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical than outstanding intellectual ability, 
unusually strong research skills, and a history of innovation and accomplishment.

- As a member of interdisciplinary project teams, you take over responsibility for the early project phases including 
hit finding and hit follow-up.
- You support research projects with state-of-the-art computational chemistry methods and contribute to the design 
and optimization of lead compounds
- In your new role you enhance our method portfolio with newly emerging CompChem methods e.g. from areas such as artificial 
intelligence, cheminformatics, or structure-based design
- Maintain and develop a working knowledge of state-of-the-art computational chemistry methods and their application 
to drug design


- Ph.D. in computational chemistry, cheminformatics, or a related field
- Demonstrated skills in the application of computer-assisted drug design using the modeling and computational software
- Experience of working within a drug discovery environment would be an advantage
- Familiarity with pharmacological and medicinal chemistry concepts
- Ability to work independently and collaboratively in a multidisciplinary, team-oriented environment
- Communicate and collaborate effectively with medicinal chemists, structural biologists, and other members 
of cross-functional project teams
- Good knowledge of UNIX/Linux


- Extensive research facilities and modern laboratories
- Daily cooperation and know-how exchange with an experienced research team
- Long-term cooperation based on stable employment conditions
- Competitive basic salary & bonus opportunities
- Training program enabling scientific development (Peer to Peer Academy, scientific lectures, participation in conferences)
- Soft skills training & language courses (English & Polish)
- Support in relocation and legalization procedures
- Private medical care and the possibility to participate in a life insurance program
- On-site, subsidized kindergarten
- Lunch benefits & fruits in the office
- Multisport card and on-site fitness & spa facility
- Possibility to participate in sports activities (football, volleyball)
