We are seeking a talented individual for the position of Scientific Researcher/ Sr. Scientific Researcher to join the Biochemical and Cellular Pharmacology group as part of the small molecule drug discovery program in South San Francisco. The successful candidate will be responsible for supporting projects using biophysical approaches, especially surface plasmon resonance (SPR), to provide fragment screens, SAR, and mechanism of action studies to early stage research and discovery programs. This individual will independently develop, validate, and perform SPR assays while acting as the group representative on small molecule project teams. The successful candidate will analyze, interpret, and present data effectively to move projects forward. There will be close collaborations with medicinal and computational chemistry, biologists, and pharmacologists.
Who you are:
The qualified individual will have a BS or MS in Biochemistry, Biophysics, or a related field with at least 3 years of relevant experience using biophysical or biochemical methods for small molecule drug discovery projects. The successful candidate will have quantitative experience in at least 1 biophysical technique (SPR, NMR, crystallography, etc.) and have a solid background in protein biochemistry and biophysics. While the work will be heavily SPR-driven previous experience with that technology is not required as long as the candidate has a significant background in rigorous precision measurement.
