Funding Opportunities

I am pleased to consider applications from talented and motivated scientists to join our laboratory in the School of Life Sciences of the University of Dundee. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, combining chemical biology, medicinal chemistry and drug design, with structural biology and cell biology, so we welcome applications from a variety of backgrounds. Interested candidates should contact Alessio Ciulli (email: a.ciulli@dundee.ac.uk), and include a CV and contact details for two professional referees.

Available Openings

(New - March 2019!)

We have an opening available immediately for 2x Medicinal Chemist Scientists to work on a drug discovery collaboration between the Ciulli group and Amphista Therapeutics, a start-up company focussed on targeted protein degradation.

Scientist (Medicinal Chemistry) - 2 posts (SLSC0563)

We are advertising two medicinal chemistry positions, primarily laboratory-based, to join a multi-disciplinary team for a small molecule drug discovery program. This team is engaged in an exciting drug discovery collaboration between Professor Alessio Ciulli and Amphista Therapeutics, a start-up company founded in December 2017. The company seeks to discover novel therapeutics which accelerate protein degradation to develop drugs to treat cancer and other serious medical disorders.

We are looking for highly motivated scientists with a PhD in synthetic organic or medicinal chemistry with a keen interest in innovating and driving new approaches to drug discovery.

The successful candidates will work closely with the biology and structural biology and biophysics team, designing and synthesising hit and lead compounds and demonstrating appropriate pharmaceutical properties and efficacy.

Closing date: 31 March 2019.
