Dunad Therapeutics is a dynamic biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of next-generation targeted protein degradation therapies. Dunad’s platform enables selective degradation via direct target modification using tuneable mono-valent small molecules, allowing for the development of more drug-like, orally bioavailable,
and CNS-accessible protein degraders.
Dunad is seeking a highly talented, diversely experienced and motivated Computational Chemist to join the Drug Discovery Team. The role will provide the opportunity to work on an exciting and dynamic range of drug discovery projects; to use computational tools to both select the targets most amenable to the platform and to design the best molecules for target engagement. The successful applicant will be expected to flawlessly apply their hands-on knowledge of computational methods, and work as part of a team in order to maximise results and facilitate the company's expansion. Furthermore, the successful applicant will demonstrate an ability to run and work on multiple projects at any given time and provide guidance for less experienced team members.
The successful candidate will play a key strategic role in building the Computational Chemistry function, including selecting software and tools and recruiting outstanding team members to support the expanding portfolio of internal and partnered projects.
