We are seeking a highly motivated individual who is willing to accept the challenge of cutting-edge research in the development of peptide hormone mimetics.
This multidisciplinary research program combines molecular modeling-aided combinatorial chemical synthesis of peptide hormone mimetics with their biological and structural characterization. The successful applicant for this postdoc position will be an outstanding, self-driven person who will explore the organic synthesis and solid-phase synthesis of peptidomimetics as well as biological characterization of compounds.
Applicants must have a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry or a closely related discipline. Candidates must be the first author of at least two publications. The position requires prior experience in synthetic organic chemistry. Experience in biological testing of compounds is a definite plus. Excellent oral and written communication skills in English are required, as is the ability to conduct independent scientific investigations.
We offer a competitive salary financed by the European Regional Development Fund and a stable position lasting one to three years. Located in the stunning city of Prague, our research facilities feature a state-of-the-art instrumentation portfolio (www.uochb.cz). The position is being offered for 12 months starting from Spring 2020 and will likely be extended.
How to apply:
Please send cover letter, CV, and contact information for two or three references in a single PDF file to email@example.com.
