Successful candidates are likely to have a PhD in Organic Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacology, Biochemistry, or a related discipline. Alongside this, they are likely to have a drug discovery background gained in industry, or substantial relevant post-doctoral study underpinned by a commercial delivery element during their research. Knowledge and experience of practical laboratory drug discovery techniques is essential and a background of successfully overseeing and supporting the work of others is highly desirable.

  • Project Leadership: Lead and motivate multi-disciplinary lab based teams to deliver Drug Discovery projects to time and budget.
  • Resource Planning: Ensure the appropriate resource and skills are available throughout the project to deliver the project as planned
  • Project Planning: Define project activities and identify dependencies and establish an achievable timeline to deliver the project
