Pharmacist or Organic / Medicinal (In Silico) Chemist (f/m)
for our computer-modeling consulting services
About BioSolveITBioSolveIT is a German-based global player in the CADD software industry with distribution offices in the US, India, China, and Japan. We provide first class discovery services and deliver superior and slick software solutions for structure-based design, flexible molecular alignment, database searching, library design and analysis.

The PositionAs an organic chemist specialized in medicinal or pharmaceutical chemistry, you will support internal and external Drug Discovery projects using our top-notch software solutions. Typical application scenarios are target validation, hit-to-lead, lead optimization, scaffold hopping, and library design.
