Medicinal Chemistry Workshop for Outstanding PhD Students & Postdocs

Apply now to join us in either October, at either our Alderley Park or Nottingham offices, for a one and a half day interactive workshop!

Sygnature Discovery is the UK’s largest independent provider of integrated drug discovery resource and expertise. Drawing on the experience of over 430 highly qualified scientists, Sygnature plays a leading role in conducting pharmaceutical research into areas of unmet medical need on behalf of our clients. Our Medicinal Chemistry department is at the forefront of our scientific research, driving our drug discovery projects forwards through innovative target design and synthesis, and we are always on the lookout for high calibre recruits at all levels.

Sygnature’s success relies on the scientific excellence of its staff, so to encourage the next generation of drug discovery scientists, we would like to invite final year synthetic organic/medicinal chemistry PhD and postdoc chemists to apply to take part in a one-and-a-half-day medicinal chemistry course at our sites in Nottingham City Centre or Alderley Park, Cheshire. During this interactive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn about fundamental aspects of medicinal chemistry, and how this core scientific discipline lies at the heart of Sygnature’s research activities. The course will consist of several seminars delivered by experienced medicinal chemists together with interactive workshops to discuss and develop key themes introduced during the talks.

The workshops will be held in Alderley Park on 2nd & 3rd October, and in Nottingham on 30th & 31st October and applications are now open.

To apply, please email and include:
  • Covering letter, including preference (if any) of date/location
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Two-page research summary of your PhD project and/or postdoc research
  • Please include reference MCW2022 in your email

The closing date for applications is Friday 5th August 2022.
