Postdoctoral position in organic chemistry/medicinal chemistry
Lieu : CEA-Saclay, Department of bioorganic chemistry and isotopic labeling, Gif sur Yvette
Type de contrat :
Quotité de travail :
Rémunération : 2100-2300€ net per month
Date d'embauche prévue :
Durée du contrat :
In the frame of a collaborative project aiming at discovering new binders for neurodegenerative diseases, our group is developing new labelling technologies, combinatorial chemistry and high throughput screening for application in nuclear imaging (see Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2018, 57, 9744; Chem. Commun. 2021, DOI: 10.1039/D1CC02665H).
The project aims to develop new combinatorial synthetic approaches to prepare libraries of molecules which will be used to accelerate the discovery of new ligands able to selectively bind protein aggregates involved in Alzheimer, Parkinson and Huntington diseases. The strategy is based on Click Chemistry combined with a mass enhancer and radiolabeling, to identify specific ligands for neurodegenerative diseases and map their distribution by imaging.
The postdoctoral fellow will be hosted in the SCBM (Service de Chimie Bioorganique et de Marquage) at CEA-Saclay and will work in close collaboration with several teams within the network. All experiments will be conducted with stable isotopes. CEA personnel will perform experiments with radiolabeled compounds.
Niveau d'études souhaité :
