 We are seeking two postdoctoral associates in the field of synthetic organic chemistry.  We
are interested in exploiting new chemical space to identify novel scaffolds for drug targets
and the candidates will participate in the design and synthesize of the new scaffold
molecules.  The biological activities of the synthesized molecules will be tested in an
automated compound profiling system.  Once a scaffold is identified, further lead optimization
will be carried out using structure-based design and focused library approaches.  The ideal
candidate should be highly motivated and have strong skills in organic synthesis with a Ph.D.
in synthetic organic chemistry.
