Subject: 18.10.18 Senior Scientist - CADD - UCB Slough/Belgium/US
At UCB everything we do starts with a simple question: How will this make a difference to the lives of people living with severe diseases? We do that by connecting with patients and their families around the world living with the physical and social burdens of severe disease of the immune system and the central nervous system. Those connections offer new perspectives, drive innovation, and offer the hope of a new generation of therapies that will help to transform lives. Role Overview We are seeking an exceptional candidate to join our Computer-Aided Drug Design (CADD) team within Global Chemistry to drive the discovery of new therapeutic candidates using targeted protein degradation. This position can be located either in our UK research site in Slough, our Belgian research site in Braine-l'Alleud or our US research site in Bedford, MA, USA. Primary Responsibilities Independently design and execute computational experiments in a timely manner to drive the application of targeted protein degradation technology to therapeutic projects. Be proactive in anticipating project needs, contributing strategy and driving project progression from target evaluation to lead-optimisation. Drive innovation and new technology, bringing in external science and methodology and developing new ways of working internally at UCB. Contribute to scientific discussions and present data at internal meetings and external scientific conferences. Contribute to the maintenance of a safe and effective working environment by setting high personal standards and complying with all Company HSE codes of practice. Create effective working relationships within the global chemistry and UCB matrix working environment via influencing and networking. Demonstrate high level of entrepreneurship and foster a can-do and can-win attitude. Drive own professional development for continuous improvement of knowledge and skills.
