Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Medicinal Chemistry at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

The School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Medicine, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, invites applications for tenure-track positions in Medicinal Chemistry for the upcoming 2024-2025 academic year.


Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in chemistry with a robust emphasis on Medicinal Chemistry, specifically in the domains of Medicinal Inorganic Chemistry, Chemical Biology, and/or Medicinal Synthetic Chemistry. Preference will be given to candidates with a distinguished background in the development of synthetic methodologies, as well as expertise in the design, synthesis, and exploration of natural- and natural-like compounds. Nevertheless, individuals with exceptional achievements in other aspects of Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology are also strongly encouraged to apply.

Research Responsibilities

The successful candidates will be expected to establish and lead independent, competitive research programs in Medicinal Chemistry. This encompasses the discovery, development, identification, and interpretation of the mode of action of biologically active compounds at the molecular level. Emphasis is placed on drug candidates and bioactive compounds in general, fostering a comprehensive understanding of their properties and potential applications.

Desired Qualities

Candidates should demonstrate the ability to build and lead independent research groups and a strong commitment to guiding students at all levels within the study programs offered by the School of Pharmacy (B.Pharm., M.Sc., and Ph.D.).

Teaching Responsibilities

In addition to their research contributions, successful applicants are expected to actively participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching within the School of Pharmacy. They will have the opportunity to mentor and guide students at all levels, contributing to the academic growth and development of future pharmaceutical scientists.

Evaluation Criteria
