 Postdoctoral fellowship
 Computational Chemistry
 Organon International bv - part of the Pharma Division of Akzo -
 is engaged in the development, production and marketing of drugs
 for human ethical use. More than 6,000 people are employed world-
 wide of whom roughly 1,000 are employed in the R&D organisation.
 Research is focused on fertility control, immunology,
 (cardio)vascular diseases, the nervous system and cancer.
 A postdoctoral position (appointment for a maximum of 3 years) is
 available at the Department of Computational Medicinal Chemistry
 (CMC) at Oss, the Netherlands. The department aims to support the
 rational design of biologically active compounds with a pre-
 defined pharmacological profile. In this respect, computational
 chemistry techniques (molecular modelling and graphics, energy
 calculations, QSAR) and database techniques are employed. The
 department is involved in the development of 3D databases and 3D
 search techni(e.g. Chemical & Engineering News, August 10,
 1992, p 20).
 Your job will mainly involve the in-house development of CMC
 methodology. The work will be focused on de-novo drug design
 approaches and partly be a continuation of 3D search strategies.
 We expect you to be capable of carrying out a research project in
 computational chemistry and to have demonstrated this ability by
 obtaining a PhD degree in chemistry with emphasis on computer
 applications. At Organon you will find a scientifically
 stimulating environment and many possibilities for further
 personal development. We expect you to communicate results at
 meetings as well as through scientific publications. Salary will
 be commensurate with experience with a minimum of NLG 5,028 per
 Further information can be obtained from Dr. J.-R. Mellema, head
 CMC department, +31-4120-62140. Applicants are asked to send in a
 statement of interest, resumi (CV) and list of publications within
 3 weeks from the date of issue to Organon International B.V.
