Senior Post-Doctoral Researcher
Cork – Position Summary This position is focused on development of the role of biocatalysis as a synthetic approach for asymmetric synthesis especially for pharmaceutical application. The successful candidate must have experience in the use of biotransformations in organic synthesis and must show evidence of research excellence in synthetic organic chemistry including publications. The postdoctoral researcher will work together with the PhD students working on the project, in particular on the synthesis of esters bearing stereogenic centres remote from the carboxy group and on evaluating enzyme systems for use in dynamic kinetic resolutions. The successful candidate will specifically be responsible for the development of the project as a foundation for application of biotransformations in industry and will liaise closely with industry partners. In addition the successful candidate will be expected to effectively collaborate with academic partners internationally, including applying for coll… – Temporary – Full-timeApply for this job.
