The Center for Integrative Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery (CICBDD) combines accomplished pharmaceutical scientists and cutting edge academicians focused on oncology drug discovery and the chemical and structural biology of chromatin regulation. The first clinical candidate from the Center is advancing through clinical trials and is a targeted therapeutic designed to reactivate the innate immune response in cancer and block survival signaling pathways in many solid and hematologic malignancies. The Center's chromatin science is centered on methyl-lysine as a posttranslational modification and the protein-protein interactions that it facilitates. The first chemical probes for methyl-lysine reader proteins were discovered in the CICBDD and are being used to validate novel interventions in cancer and other diseases.
The Center for Integrative Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery at UNC-CH invites highly skilled and motivated synthetic organic chemists who are interested in expanding or deepening their skills, including medicinal chemistry and chemical biology, to apply for this position. The postdoctoral associate will become a member of multidisciplinary teams in an environment where his/her knowledge of organic synthesis will play a key role in advancing chemical biology and drug discovery projects.
Ph.D. in Organic or Medicinal Chemistry, or in related field of study.
