For Confo Therapeutics, a young and innovative drug discovery company, we are looking for a (Senior) Scientist Structural Biology. Their novel approach to drug discovery is internationally recognised and is both quicker and more performant than standard approaches. Their focus lies on the development of small molecule drugs for severe diseases by targeting GPCR’s, a class of membrane proteins with massive druggable potential. Unique is that the company’s technology allows for the research of inherently unstable GPCR’s, which previously could not be investigated. To support the growth of their biophysical activities, they are thus looking to strengthen the group with a (Senior) Scientist.
You will join the Structural Biology group, which is key to the success of the organisation and consists of specialists in the GPCR field. The company has heavily invested in this group and therefore you will be able to use all state-of-the-art technologies, including cryo-em. As (Senior) Scientist, you will set-up your own projects in the broader company strategy and guide one or two Research Associates. You will be able to quickly develop yourself in a fast-growing group and under the guidance of a Manager with extensive academic and industry experience.
With your expertise in the field, you will quickly bring value to the current programs. You will not only be working as a Structural Biologist, you will also be Project Member in broader drug discovery programs and have the opportunity to work as a Project Leader yourself. Thus you will see the whole drug discovery process inside the company from a to z!
In this position, you bring the following skills-set/experience:
Bringing protein biophysical characterisation (thermostability, (F-)SEC and/or IR,) and screening (SPR and/or thermal shift) is a plus.
