Team Leader & Research Scientists: Dundee—Almirall PROTAC collaboration (5 posts)

We are seeking five researchers to work on a new drug discovery collaboration between Professor Alessio Ciulli and Almirall (a global biopharmaceutical company focused on skin health). Our mission is to discover and develop a class of small-molecule degrader drugs as a novel therapeutic paradigm to treat inflammatory skin diseases with unmet medical needs. This collaboration will be centred on the design, synthesis and evaluation of so-called proteolysis targeting chimeric molecules (PROTACs) that work by inducing the intracellular degradation of a target protein of interest.
