The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is a research centre focusing on the areas of catalysis and renewable energies. In particular, homogeneous catalysis and its applications on the synthesis of bioactive compounds is one of the largest areas of research of the institute, as well as the largest area of collaboration with industry.
ICIQ and the German biotech company AiCuris have a collaboration in the area of medicinal chemistry with the objective of advancing Medicinal Chemistry research projects from initial hit finding, through the lead optimization process to ultimately deliver high quality small molecule clinical candidates to AiCuris’ pipeline. At the AiCuris-ICIQ Joint Unit, we are hiring one Project Researcher to join our team.
The role of the Project Researcher position 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.
- The selected candidate will focus on developing and optimizing synthetic procedures, synthesis and purification of novel chemical compounds in medicinal chemistry projects, applying state of the art technology and current best practice in synthetic and medicinal chemistry
