Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience, Ibanez

The laboratory of professor Carlos Ibanez is now seeking a talented and enthusiastic researcher with expertise in medicinal chemistry and chemical biology to advance drug discovery efforts and investigations on death receptor signaling and physiology in cancer and neuronal cells.

The research entails medicinal chemistry studies on small molecules targeting the p75NTR death receptor identified in our ongoing screens, with the objective to improve the pharmacokinetic and biological properties of chemical leads. Please see Goh et al. (2018) Cell Chemical Biology 25, 1485–1494 for a representative publication of this work (carlosibanezlab.se/Publications).

Funding is available for an initial period of 3 to 4 years, starting during the first half of 2019.

Entry requirements
