Postdoctoral Fellowships, natural and non-natural peptide chemistry for drug discovery and diagnostics.
The Biosciences Division at SRI International is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to join our research team developing novel types of synthetic sequence-defined non-natural polymers as therapeutic and diagnostic reagents. In this role, the individual will conduct solid-phase synthesis on automated peptide synthesis instrument and purification on preparative HPLC of non-natural polymers, design and synthesis of novel building blocks and basic organic synthesis.
The individual will work closely with a team of experienced peptide and synthetic chemists developing a robust process for the production of novel synthetic polymers and developing new applications as therapeutics, affinity reagents and/or sensors. The successful candidate will contribute to the design of the research, development of novel methodologies, preparation of research publications and collaborations with external partners.
They will join a highly interactive and collegial group of chemists, biochemists, biologists, engineers and computational scientists within the Discovery Technologies group as well as more broadly within the entire Biosciences Division and other divisions at SRI International.
