Job Details


At Boehringer Ingelheim we develop breakthrough therapies and innovative healthcare solutions in areas of unmet medical need for both humans and animals. As a family owned company, we focus on long-term performance. We believe that, if we have talented and ambitious people who are passionate about innovation, there is no limit to what we can achieve; after all, we started with just 28 people. Now, we are powered by 50,000 employees globally who nurture a diverse, collaborative and inclusive culture.


Success of Fragment Based Screening (FBS) campaigns often depends on the availability of protein ligand co-structure information. We are looking for a talented and highly motivated Postdoctoral Scientist in the field of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to be a part of our Structural Research team in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry.

As an NMR specialist in the Medicinal Chemistry Department, you will support multidisciplinary teams with structural information on protein-ligand complexes, as well as NMR-based screening data.

We are looking for someone who wants to push the boundaries of applying NMR to drug discovery in our state-of-the-art facilities. Agility, accountability and intrapreneurship comprise the skills and mindset of a scientist we would like to welcome in our team.

This position is limited for two years.

Note: To make it easier to find our job advertisements, we use the usual designation "Post Doc". Of course, this advertisement is not only addressed to applicants directly after completing their doctorate, but to all qualified candidates.
