Within the Laboratory for Chemical Biology Sweden (LCBKI). LCBKI is one node in CBCS (Chemical Biology Consortium Sweden), a national infrastructure for chemical biology (www.CBCS.se) at Science for Life Laboratory (scilifelab.se). CBCS operates in a highly collaborative fashion in projects with users, offering a platform for the development of novel chemical tools (bioactive small-molecules) for all fields of life sciences (molecular-, cell-, plant-, structural biology and microbiology, pharmacology; natural product and environmental research etc.). LCBKI offers collaborative service and guidance within assay development, small-molecule screening and hit to chemical probe optimization.

We seek an individual who will establish and perform primary screening assays in screening format with the aim to develop and optimize high quality small molecule tool compounds. Activities will include evaluating different assay formats and establishing high throughput and high content screens. This work will be performed in close collaboration with the academic research groups. You will be responsible for the delivery of high-quality data, and you will work closely with medicinal chemists to enable iterative rounds of compound testing and tool compound optimisation.

Experience in the field of large scale data handling from small molecule screening campaigns, ideally in multiple programming languages is highly valued Also, previous experience in fluorescent microscopy and image analysis is an advantage. In addition to participating in research projects, some graduate-level teaching will be required.

Eligible applicants will have a relevant doctoral degree, or alternatively documented skills of relevance to the employment. Experience from an academic chemical biology screening centre with laborative work and data analysis is highly meriting. You will need a strong passion for daily experimental and data analysis work. The successful candidate should have very good interpersonal and cooperation skills, be flexible and be capable of working in a structured and efficient way.  The candidate should have excellent communication skills in written and spoken English.

When evaluating the candidates previous experience of (cell based) assay development and screening is especially meritorious.

The position is a fixed-term employment for 2 years, with the possibility of extension. The position is placed at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics under the Research Division Chemical Biology.
