Cheminformatics scientist Position

The position is available starting from 1st January 2020 in the Compound 
Management and Screening Center (COMAS).

Job description:
The Compound Management and Screening Center (COMAS) is the central 
facility for early drug discovery within the Max Planck Society.
COMAS hosts a 200k compound library as well as infrastructure for 
high-throughput screening.
Projects are carried out in collaboration with different Max Planck groups.
Your responsibilities include the support of drug discovery projects 
by the administration of chemical databases and data mining.
The position is highly collaborative: you will be able to bring in your 
own interests within a stimulating academic environment.

Prerequisites for the job include a completed university degree (Ph.D.) 
in cheminformatics or a comparable qualification.

The ideal candidate will have several years of experience in the management 
of chemical databases (SQL, Oracle).

You should also be familiar with the analysis of large datasets using 
Python and its data science stack (Pandas, Dask).
Additional knowledge in Pipeline Pilot and/or cheminformatics toolkits 
like RDKit would be advantageous. 

English language skills are a must, German would be a plus.

Candidates should be able to work independently in an interdisciplinary 
team and communicate well within the team as well with national 
and international collaboration partners.

We offer a full-time employment in a modern, international work environment. 

The position is limited until the end of 2022.

Remuneration is paid in accordance with the collective bargaining 
agreement of the public service (TVD Bund), taking account of your 
qualifications and professional experience.

In addition, social benefits correspond to those of the public service.

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals 
with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications 
from such qualified individuals.

Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women 
in areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly 
encourages women to apply. 

The Max-Planck-Society strives for gender equality and diversity within 
its workforce.

Applications should be conclusive and complete, including the earliest 
possible starting date.

The application deadline is 10th January 2020.
