We are seeking a highly skilled and well self-motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow with a passion for synthetic chemistry and personal drive to publish in world class journals. The initial research will center around the elucidation of new reactions and reagents for regio-selective late stage fluorination as well as novel synthetic chemistry and the development of innovative chemical systems such as flow chemistry, to enable an access to novel fluorinated biologically active molecules. It is expected that there will be significant opportunity to publish and, once the initial work plan is completed, there will be significant research opportunities which it is expected will be inspired by the Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
Hold a Ph.D. (or in the process of obtaining a Ph.D.) in Chemistry with graduation date 2017-2018.
The ideal candidate will have experience in one or more of these areas: methodology development, target oriented synthesis, basic analytical chemistry and NMR spectroscopy.
While considered a plus, no previous fluorine chemistry experience is required.
Current US work authorization.
Preferred Additional Skills:
Exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
Excellent decision making and organization skills.
Committed to the values of integrity, accountability, transparency, scientific rigor and drive.
Ability to travel domestically and internationally.
