Postdoctoral Fellow - Job Description
The Beharry Lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga is recruiting a full-time postdoctoral fellow with expertise in the field of synthetic medicinal chemistry. They will be involved in research projects focused on the design and synthesis of small molecule modulators of enzyme activity for cancer therapeutics. The candidate will also be involved in the development of novel fluorescent chemosensors to predict anticancer drug resistance.
Desired Skills and Experience
The candidate is required to have recently completed a PhD degree in synthetic organic medicinal chemistry (or a related discipline). We are seeking a highly self-motivated individual with insightful and innovative research capabilities. They must be able to work both independently and in a team. Ideal candidates should have theoretical background and laboratory experience in organic synthesis, purification and characterization techniques (e.g. HPLC, NMR, LC-MS, etc.), and SAR studies. They should have solid understanding of medicinal chemistry with experience in PK/TK/PD studies to support the development of compounds for in vivo applications. Additionally, candidates must have strong writing and oral communication skills and be able to help maintain a safe working and learning environment.
Candidates are asked to submit a CV and cover letter. Request for reference letters will be made shortly after the initial selection round. For inquires and to submit your application package, contact Dr. Andrew Beharry (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications will be accepted until October 31, 2020.
