| || The Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation (GNF) bridges basic science and preclinical drug discovery. GNF’s scientists work across many disease areas and are committed to pushing the boundaries of science in pursuit of new medicines to address unmet medical need. Our institute offers world-class expertise in high-throughput drug screening and advanced automation technologies, which enable its researchers to tackle complex biological systems and facilitates drug finding. As part of GNF’s Discovery Chemistry department, Flow Chemistry and Technology efforts play a significant role rapidly producing drug-like chemical matter using advanced instrumentation techniques.
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral associate to develop innovative chemical transformations using flow chemistry technology in order to synthesize novel drug-like structures that are difficult to obtain with traditional batch chemistry. The qualified applicant must have a strong background in organic chemistry with a complementary skill set in multi-step organic synthesis, chemical methodology, compound purification and structural identification. The candidate will perform and have a strong interest in chemical instrumentation and flow technology. It is expected that this work will be published in high impact peer-reviewed journals.
This position is a unique opportunity to participate in GNF’s postdoctoral program offering unrivalled scientific training and career development. Postdoctoral associates are supported by a full range of GNF’s capabilities, working directly with mentors in lab environments using the latest in discovery technologies pursuing basic research that uncovers new opportunities to impact human health.
