Within the University of Dundee, the newly announced Centre for Targeted Protein Degradation (CeTPD) is being created as a first of its kind Centre leading a number of internationally significant projects in the burgeoning new area of translational chemical biology and targeted protein degradation. The goal of CeTPD is to innovate the next-generation of small-molecule platforms and modalities to advance chemical and biological insights and therapeutic targets related to human diseases. It aspires to achieve this by openly collaborating with academic, industrial and venture partners, and by training and inspiring the next-generation of research scientists and leaders.
We are seeking to appoint a Senior Scientist to join our expanding group based at the University of Dundee in the new Centre for Targeted Protein Degradation (CeTPD), due to open in early 2022. The focus of this new role will be to drive and accelerate degrader drug discovery projects within a multi-disciplinary drug discovery team engaged in structure based PROTAC design in an exciting collaboration between the University of Dundee and Boehringer Ingelheim. The joint team’s mission is to discover novel small-molecule degraders to treat cancers with serious unmet medical needs. There is significant scope for the successful candidate to develop and augment discipline-based activities to support the on-going discovery efforts of this collaboration team, as well as of the wider CeTPD group.
Your priorities will include:
Who we’re looking for:
We are one of the UK’s leading universities – internationally recognised for our expertise across a range of disciplines and research breakthroughs in multiple areas, including science, medicine and engineering, amongst many others. Conveniently located on the banks of River Tay, our main city-centre campus is at the heart of Dundee - an up-and-coming, friendly, compact and affordable city with a rich heritage in design and technology. Just a short walk from the V&A Museum of Design Dundee, we’re close to both the train and bus stations. We also have campuses at Ninewells Hospital and in Kirkcaldy which are easily accessible via local transport links.
The University of Dundee is a signatory of the Researcher Development Concordat and is committed to enhancing the research environment and culture. Engagement and support of activities which assist the researcher development agenda at the University is therefore essential.
