Scientist Discovery & Pharmacology (100%) - Assay Development and Drug Screening
InterAx Biotech AG is a rapidly growing Swiss Biotech company based in Villigen. We are a friendly and dynamic interdisciplinary team fully committed to the discovery of functional selective therapeutics for G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). The company has built a unique drug discovery platform for identification of superior drug candidates. This technology allows for the integration of both, experimental and computational pharmacology, and is able to predict in vivo effects of drug candidates by analyzing complex experimental in vitro data sets. We are currently offering a position for a Scientist in Discovery & Pharmacology, responsible for assay development and drug screening.
You are a highly motivated, fully committed scientist with a strong profile in pharmacology. You have the know-how to independently lead drug discovery projects. You are both used to apply standard methodologies and to develop novel assays to explore the pharmacology of drug candidates. You enjoy working in an international environment, to train your colleagues and to process and report your results. As a person you are proactive and engaged with a “can-do” attitude. You are energetic, flexible, result-oriented, and enjoy working in a young and dynamic team.
InterAx is an equal opportunities employer.
