Job Advertisement HKI-20/2016

Postdoc position (Chemist) starting from November for two years initially.

The successful candidate will work within the framework of a BMBF-funded collaborative research project (www.infectcontrol.de) on the early stage and preclinical development of novel antibiotic scaffolds.

Main topics of the project will include:

  • Bioanalytical method development (HPLC-MS)
  • Development of synthetic approaches (total synthesis and semisynthesis) for heterocyclic and peptide antibiotics
  • Analysis of structure-activity-relationships
  • Structure elucidation and characterization
  • Compound profiling (interpretation of in-vitro ADMET data and bioactivity)

Our requirements:

  • You hold a PhD in organic or natural product chemistry and have profound expertise in modern and classical synthetic methods as well as modern analytical chemistry (NMR, MS, HPLC).
  • Knowledge in the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds and/or peptides (SPPS) or natural products is highly beneficial.
  • Experience in the isolation and structure elucidation of trace compounds and/or the handling of unstable organic substances would be highly appreciated.
  • Basics in pharmacology and the interpretation of biological activities are a further plus.
  • We would welcome a highly motivated co-worker with excellent communication skills and the ability to work on an interdisciplinary and very application-related project.

We offer you a challenging project which involves partners from several universities, clinics, companies and contract service providers. State-of-the-art instrumentation and laboratories as well as the collaborative and constructive atmosphere at the HKI provide ideal conditions to be highly target-oriented. As a postdoc you have access to the Graduate Academy of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena which offers an excellent qualification programme.

You will be hosted in the Transfer Group Antiinfectives, a cross-sectional unit with a close linkage to the application and proof of novel therapeutic concepts.
