​SciPro is working with a mid-sized company based in New York City to find an experienced Computational Chemist to join their innovative and next-generational computational team. Their work is entirely Dry Lab, and they focus on the discovery phase of drug development, specifically.

This role would be as a high-functioning individual contributor, and you would not be expected to take on any direct reports. You would, however, be expected to come in and immediately work on internal projects and collaborations the company already has set up.

There is some remote flexibility, but you would be expected to live in NYC and come into the office a few times a week at least.

In this role, you would be expected to:

  • Come in and hit the ground running with your prior knowledge of computational drug discovery.

  • Have a baseline skill and knowledge of molecular dynamics along with transferrable knowledge in fields such as molecular modeling, cheminformatics, and medicinal chemistry.

  • Knowledge of and experience with structural biology is a plus.

  • Possess a great amount of research skill as shown through a strong publication record.

In order to qualify for this role, you should have:

  • 8-10 years of experience, more heavily weighted towards industry, specifically.

  • Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry or related field.

  • Ability to relocate to NYC, if not already located there.

  • Strong publication record.

If you think you would be a good fit, please apply or reach out to me directly at b.alkire@sciproglobal.com.
