You’re all about applying cutting edge technology to ground-breaking science – that’s why you became a Computational Chemist in the first place.

You’ve mastered the technical elements of your craft and have begun to pass your knowledge onto others. It’s been a rewarding experience and you’d like to take it further.

Your career is important to you, and you want to learn, progress and grow in an environment that places real importance on professional development.

You sound like just the person we’re looking for!

We’re working with a rapidly growing CRO with a very bright future. Over the last four years, they’ve increased their headcount by more than 400% and on the back of that have secured significant investment to drive their continued expansion.

The company provide support to customers in Medicinal, Synthetic and Process Chemistry, and their clients are a varied of group of the most innovative Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies in the UK, Europe and the US.

You’d be the first member of the newly formed Computational Chemistry department, responsible for all computational work such as structure-based design, docking and ligand optimization, fragment-based design, protein sequence analysis, virtual screening and more.

You’d lead projects, interact with customers, and help them to develop the medicines of tomorrow.

You’ll have the opportunity to hire, train and grow a brand-new Computational Chemistry team, so the career prospects are excellent, and along with all of this, you’ll lead the development of a range of proprietary platform technologies, giving the opportunity to conduct cutting edge research.

You’ll benefit from a tailored development plan to drive your career, support from a highly experienced leadership team and as the resident expert on all things Computational, you’ll occupy an influential position in the business where you can have significant impact.

This role is based in central Nottingham, and the right person will be an experienced Computational Chemist with a track record of delivering drug design and discovery projects for small molecules therapies across a range of classes and disease areas. You’ll also have solid managerial and leadership experience, and a commitment to personal development.
