Molecular Modeller

Job Reference: SLSC0784
Salary: Grade 7 (£32,817 – £40,322)

Closing Date: Sunday, October 25, 2020

The Mode of Action group are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and highly skilled molecular modeller. The MoA group is embedded within the Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research (WCAIR) at the University of Dundee. The vision for WCAIR is to tackle the urgent unmet medical need and lack of drug discovery research for Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs). WCAIR aims to integrate research in fundamental biology and translational research to deliver high-quality pre-clinical drug candidates for the treatment of NTDs.

Molecular/Cellular Parasitologist

Job reference: SLSC0779

Salary: Grade 7 (£32,817-£40,322)

Closing date: Sunday 4 October

The Mode of Action group (MoA) are seeking to appoint a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with appropriate skills in molecular and cell biology.

The MoA group, led by Dr Susan Wyllie, is focused on determining the mechanism of action and molecular targets of compounds that are phenotypically-active. To date this work has focused on kinetoplastid and Plasmodium parasites. We have developed an integrated drug target deconvolution strategy, employing an array of established and new methodologies encompassing high-throughput genetics, cell biology and chemical proteomics. We work closely with partners in academia and industry, and information…
