Postdoc in Medicinal Chemistry/Organic Chemistry A one-year postdoc position is available from October 1, 2012 in the Chemical NeuroScience Group at the Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. The project is on the discovery of novel ligands targeting the glutamate neurotransmitter system in central nervous system. Special focus is on the rational design and synthesis of ligands for the excitatory amino acid transporters (EAATs). The qualified candidate has a strong background in synthetic organic chemistry at both theoretical and practical levels. The candidate has a creative mind and strong driving force to achieve novel scientific goals, independently as well as through collaborative efforts. Furthermore, the ideal candidate has insight into aspects of rational drug design, as well as a desire to contribute to the development of novel psychiatric therapeutics for today’s unmet medical needs. Supervision of MSc and PhD students on a daily basis as well as other teaching obligations amounts to approximately 10 percent of the workload.
