A Lectureship in Medicinal Chemistry or Chemical Biology has become available in the School of Pharmacy at UEA. This appointment offers the opportunity to perform research and teaching to a high level within one of the UK’s top Schools of Pharmacy.

The Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology Section is led by Prof Ganesan, and current staffing comprises two Professors (Ganesan, Searcey), a Reader (Hamilton) and four Lecturers/Associate Professors (Beekman, McDermott, Goddard and Palmer). There are strong collaborations with other groups within the School as well as colleagues across UEA and at partner institutions on the Norwich Research Park, including the Quadram Institute and the John Innes Centre. The department’s research is focussed on three grand challenges: Age Related Diseases, Next Generation Therapeutics and Frontier Bioscience for Health and further details can be found on our website at www.uea.ac.uk/pharmacy.

The current position will focus on Medicinal Chemistry or Chemical Biology with a view to their application towards the discovery of novel therapeutic agents. Research areas that complement or strengthen those of the current faculty will be of particular interest. You will be expected to establish and lead a research group funded through competitive external grants from RCUK and charities, disclose your results in high impact publications and contribute to the standing of the School as measured through the Research Excellence Framework. Complementing excellent research, there is a strong requirement for a commitment to excellence in teaching. You will contribute to the teaching of our two undergraduate degree programmes in Pharmacy and Pharmacology and Drug Discovery, and our postgraduate MSc in Natural Product Drug Discovery, and to administration within the School.

This post represents an opportunity for an individual to develop research and teaching skills within the School of Pharmacy and to strengthen the School’s research in Medicinal Chemistry or Chemical Biology, with the aim of becoming an international leader within these areas.

With a PhD (or equivalent qualification) in organic chemistry, chemical biology or a related area you will have evidence of successful research activity in the field of organic chemistry or chemical biology, and of the ability to work as an independent scientist. 

This full-time post is available on an indefinite basis.
