The Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research (WCAIR) Training programme is seeking a personable and enthusiastic individual to take up the post of a Medicinal Chemistry Trainer. WCAIR builds on world-leading work at the University of Dundee, including within the Drug Discovery Unit (DDU), to find new drugs to treat diseases of the developing world such as malaria, tuberculosis, leishmaniasis and Chagas disease (www.wcair.dundee.ac.uk).
The WCAIR Training programme is developing a range of educational activities to support scientists from low-middle income countries working in drug discovery. These activities range from training programmes delivered in Dundee, online content (both live and pre-recorded) and delivering short courses.
A key aspect of the training programme is designing appropriate training programmes for trainees, with a mix of online theoretical content and on-the-job, hands-on practical training. The training will develop the trainees’ expertise in medicinal chemistry, while providing exposure to all other aspects of the drug discovery matrix.
There is an expectation that there will be ongoing training and advice that will support the development of sustainable drug discovery research in the trainee’s originating location. Ensuring training is transferable to the trainees’ home laboratories is essential.
From 2022 we hope to be able to return to delivering short courses in countries where collaborations have been established. You should expect to undertake 1 international visit for teaching per year
The post is available immediately. Salary will depend on experience but will be in the range £33,309 – £40,927. You will be offered an open-ended contract.
