You must have a Ph.D. degree in medicinal chemistry and/or synthetic organic chemistry from an appropriate institution, and at least 2 to 3 years experience working as a medicinal chemist within the pharmaceutical industry. You should have a strong publication record relative to the stage of your career, and be capable of managing scientists within the Company as well as managing contract relationships with synthetic organic chemistry laboratories both in the United States and in Asia. Expertise in cancer and metabolic disorders is highly desirable. [snip]
Some experience working with patent attorneys on filings for patent applications pertaining to novel biomedical inventions is desirable. However, we are not looking for a “paper-pusher.” This is an unprecedented time in the history of medical research and if you don’t have a strong passion for scientific investigation, then this position is definitely not for you. You should enjoy laboratory work more than administrative responsibilities and make time to work in the lab and lead by example regardless of your level of experience.
We are seeking a motivated team player who is able to work closely with other scientific disciplines involved in modern drug discovery and is able to solve complex medicinal chemistry problems.I find it terribly amusing that senior management types always seem to think that it's important to do bench work. That's why bench workers are paid more, right? Right? Wait -- they're not? Oh.
