Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate, funded by the Collaborative Computing Project for NMR (CCPN), to develop an interface for small molecule screening as an additional module to our CcpNmr Analysis Software. This module would include a graphical user interface to control the workflow for fragment-based screening using NMR and software components for the efficient analysis and screening of NMR spectra for the identification and characterisation of small molecule ligands.
The successful candidate should have a PhD in an appropriate field, be familiar with either NMR spectroscopy or small molecule screening, and have a good working knowledge of Python programming as well as demonstrated experience in the development of software applications. The applicant must be able to work as part of the existing team, and needs to have the initiative and drive to make sure that their part of the project is completed successfully. The project would be carried out in collaboration with our industrial partners and a willingness to travel and to work with our collaborating partners is also important.
Applications should consist of a completed CHRIS/6 form (which can be downloaded from http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/hr/forms/chris6/) with a CV and the names and addresses of three referees. This should be returned, quoting the reference number, via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org OR by post to the Personnel Secretary, Department of Biochemistry, Building O, Downing Site, Cambridge CB2 1QW UK.
