Computational Chemist/Biologist


Up ]

AstraZeneca R&D Mölndal is seeking a computational chemist/biologist interested in developing predictive structure property relationships for ADME properties. The position is located within the Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics & Bioanalytical Chemistry Department (DMPK&BAC) but interactions with staff from the Medicinal Chemistry Department, the Enabling Science and Technology (EST) function, as well as colleagues in global AstraZeneca are frequent.

Advancements in the understanding of absorption processes and drug metabolism reactions are leading to increased opportunities to develop methodologies to relate these processes to physicochemical and other molecular properties. The department is continuing its commitment to the development of this field by recruiting a motivated individual interested in carrying out research in structure property modeling and applying the knowledge in the drug discovery projects. The research is done in an interdisciplinary environment with close collaborations with absorption and metabolism scientists.

Suitable background is a PhD degree in a relevant field and preferably experience with computational modeling in the DMPK area. Since the position involves ample opportunities for collaborations with project teams, experts in the department as well as externally, excellent team working and communication skills are required. 

For inquiries on the position contact Walter Lindberg, phone +46 31 776 1457, e-mail: or Anna-Lena Ungell, phone +46 31 776 1639 e-mail: Please send your application, marked with "241/01Computational chemist/biologist" no later than January 7, 2001 to: AstraZeneca R&D Mölndal, Human Resources, Victoria Persson, 431 83 Mölndal, Sweden.
