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.
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.
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.).
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.
Applicants will be rigorously evaluated based on their innovative and excellent research contributions, dedication to mentoring and teaching, and potential to lead original and groundbreaking research in Medicinal Chemistry, regardless of their specific area of expertise.
The initial screening will be conducted by the School of Pharmacy's Search Committee. Shortlisted applicants will be invited for interviews at the Faculty of Medicine that include a frontal seminar.
The Institute for Drug Research (IDR) houses a vibrant community of inventive scholars and scientists within the field of Medicinal Chemistry, wholly dedicated to propelling the research, educational, and service endeavors of the School of Pharmacy. IDR's research focal point resides in unraveling the intricate molecular mechanisms underlying biological processes and disease pathologies, with a strong emphasis on employing medicinal, structural, and chemical methodologies to gain profound insights into the essence of form and function in medicine.
This is an unparalleled opportunity to join a vibrant academic community devoted to advancing medicinal chemistry research. If you are deeply passionate about making groundbreaking discoveries in Medicinal Chemistry, particularly in the fields of Medicinal Inorganic Chemistry, Chemical Biology, and Medicinal Synthetic Chemistry, including the design of synthetic methodologies and the exploration of natural compounds, and unwaveringly dedicated to academic excellence, we wholeheartedly encourage you to apply for this prestigious position.
