Subject: 17.11.27 Drug Hunter - Medicinal Chemist, Schrödinger, Portland

Schrödinger’s mission is to revolutionize drug discovery through the use of breakthrough computational methods. We are currently looking for outstanding individuals to join our drug discovery group and contribute to our rapidly expanding portfolio of drug discovery collaborations.

Our drug discovery group of over 40 scientists includes designers, modelers, computational chemists, medicinal chemists, crystallographers, biochemists, and biologists with well over 100 years of combined drug discovery experience. The group is supported by more than 100 software developers and engineers. Three of the programs weve worked on in the past 5 years have progressed into the clinic and an additional one is expected to enter clinical trials this year.

If you are an experienced drug hunter and have an interest in applying cutting-edge computational approaches to structure-enabled projects, we are eager to hear from you.
