OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking a Project Researcher to join the Med Chem AiCuris-ICIQ Joint Unit.

ICIQ is committed to performing excellent research at the frontier of knowledge in the broad area of chemistry (Catalysis, Artificial Photosynthesis, Activation of Small Molecules, Photovoltaics, Functional Molecular Assemblies and Chemical Biology, from either theoretical or experimental perspectives). The institute also aims at training the future generation of scientists by offering high-quality educational programs to master, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers (Full details on http://www.iciq.org/).

ICIQ and the German biotech company AiCuris have been collaborating in drug discovery and development activities since 2015. In 2020, this collaboration was expanded with the creation of the ICIQ-Aicuris Joint Unit, which hosts 7 researchers working in the area of medicinal chemistry. The objective of this collaboration is advancing Medicinal Chemistry research projects from initial hit finding and exploratory chemistry, through the lead optimization process to ultimately deliver high quality small molecule clinical candidates to AiCuris’ pipeline.

The role of the Project Researcher will be to work in the synthesis and purification of new chemical entities and chemical libraries in medicinal chemistry projects for AiCuris, under the supervision of the Unit Manager.
