The Cancer Therapeutics Unit’s exciting goal is to discover high quality small molecule drug candidates and to progress these to clinical trial. All the scientific disciplines are in place to make this possible, including medicinal chemistry, biology, drug metabolism and clinical specialists who focus on new molecular targets emerging from human genome and ground breaking cell biology research.

A postdoctoral position is available in Dr Rob van Montfort’s Hit Discovery and Structural Design Team within the CTU. The Post-doc will be involved in high-throughput X-ray crystallography, fragment-based screening and structure-based drug design and will be responsible for protein expression, purification, crystallisation, structure determination and structural analysis of protein-ligand complexes from one of the CTU’s drug discovery programmes. The successful candidate will also be part of the Division of Structural Biology, in which the crystallographers in Dr van Montfort’s team are embedded, and will have access to state of the art crystallisation facilities, in-house X-ray sources and excellent access to synchrotrons. The successful candidate will interact closely with the biology, computational chemistry and medicinal chemistry teams at the CTU, and will therefore be expected to work across the two sites in Chelsea, London and Sutton, Surrey.

Applicants must have a PhD in a biological or physical science, and experience in macromolecular crystallography (to include protein biochemistry, protein crystallisation, & protein crystallography). Experience in molecular biology, protein expression in insect cells, structure-based drug design, and/or biophysics will be an advantage.

The starting salary will be in the range £30,410 to £37,383 p.a. inclusive (based on previous post-doctoral experience) and the post is offered on a fixed term contract of 2 years. Informal enquiries to rob.vanmontfort@icr.ac.uk or yann-vai.lebihan@icr.ac.uk. Closing date is November 21st 2017.

Please DO NOT send your application to Dr van Montfort or Dr Le Bihan; Please see our website for more details and on how to apply: www.icr.ac.uk.
