Postdoctoral Position in Synthetic Chemistry, AstraZeneca (Waltham, MA)

A group leader at AstraZeneca has recently received funding for a postdoctoral position to start a joint project with the Shaw Group (UC Davis). The project involves the synthesis of a complex natural product and working with a team at AZ to design and study analogs of the parent structure. This position is part of a new initiative at AZ to internally stimulate basic research, with a focus on the timely publication of work in high impact journals. As such, this position differs significantly from traditional "industrial" postdoctoral positions that might involve work on more confidential projects. Complete details and a link to the application can be found here. Applications MUST go through the AztraZeneca linkPLEASE DO NOT SEND APPLICATIONS MATERIALS TO MY EMAIL ADDRESS.

Postdoctoral Position in Synthetic Chemistry, University of Kentucky

This position is available for one year starting April 2014 and can be renewed for subsequent years based on research progress and the availability of funds. The Spielmann lab in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Kentucky has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral chemist with a strong synthesis background. The projects involve the design, synthesis, and biochemical testing of: (1) Photoreactive probes for protein components in Alzheimer’s Disease brain lesions; (2). Photoprobes to identify ‘flippase’ proteins involved in transbilayer movement of glycolipids; and (3) Unnatural isoprenoids as enzyme substrates and inhibitors. The ideal candidate should have background in small molecule synthesis and purification, excellent communication skills, and an interest in chemical biology. Applicants should submit a cover letter expressing interest in the position and describing the applicant's qualifications, their curriculum vita and have two letters of recommendation, with one letter being from the applicant's Ph.D. advisor, sent to Peter Spielmann (hps@uky.edu). Only complete applications will be considered.
