Technical University of Munich

Scientist (PostDoc, m/w/d) in Chemical Optimization of Anti-Infective Drug Molecules

Scientist (PostDoc, m/w/d) - Chemical optimization of anti-infective drug molecules - Vision, Trail blazing, Self-directedness, Excellence --- Is that you? Perfect! We offer the challenge you are seeking! Our profile: Our team mission is to meet the increasing threat of antibiotic resistance by developing innovative treatment options. Within BMBF funded projects, we seek to optimize a novel carbapenemase inhibitor class restoring the activity of the most widely used class of antibiotics (β-Lactams) in collaboration with the Helmholtz Institutes in Neuherberg (structure analysis via NMR and X-ray) and Braunschweig (medicinal chemistry). In addition, our inhibitor class combines beta-lactamase inhibition with standalone antibiotic activity in a unique manner. The focus of this project is the optimization and activity profiling of fragment-based inhibitors.

- Experience in biochemical assay development, optimization and validation
- Experience in target- and fragment-based compound optimization
- MedChem experience in industry setting is a plus
- Enthusiasm for translational science and entrepreneur personality
- Excellent team spirit, presentation, and communication skills

Your tasks:

- Activity testing of inhibitory compounds in biochemical assays
- Contribution to fragment based compound design and optimization
- Supervision of external compound synthesis
- SAR analysis and management of compound database
- Supervision of technical staff

We offer:

- Ambitious and innovation oriented team committed to antibacterial drug development
- Close collaboration with in house diagnostic / medical microbiology department, HMGU, HZI, and industry consultants
- Well-equipped laboratory in our institute close to Munich city center
- Full time position as scientist / PostDoc (m/w/d), currently secured for 18 months (salary according to TV-L)
- Perspective to be part of a spin-off endeavor
