Head of Computational Chemistry

Functional Area:

Research & Development

About the Position:

The Computational Chemist is responsible for strategically building an in-house and networked computational chemistry infrastructure, including nascent AI/ML, and being solely accountable for devising, championing, and developing state of the art computational techniques that solve key problems for project teams. The key deliverable is to maximize the value of DEL-guided AI / ML to improve and accelerate all aspects of lead identification and optimization by working closely with our strategic external partners in ML-guided drug design. Over time, the holder will help build a high-performing team of computational scientists and coach colleagues to analyze, interpret, visualize, and communicate data.

Requirements:

The successful candidate holds a Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) in Computational Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, or a related discipline. The successful candidate should have at least 10 years of pharmaceutical or biotech experience and demonstrate a strong understanding of the impact of computational techniques at all stages of drug discovery, including nascent AI / ML. It is expected that the successful candidate will have a track record of collaborative teamwork and problem solving, thinks entrepreneurial, is detail-oriented, well-networked, and possesses a high degree of flexibility to meet the needs of a high-pace research organization.
