Two Postdoctoral Research Scholars in Organic Synthesis and Drug Discovery.  Two highly motivated organic synthetic chemists with the desire to contribute to an NIH-funded program in natural product synthesis and drug discovery are sought. The over-arching goal of our program is to better understand the role of naturally occurring chromanones as anticancer agents. The postdoctoral scholars will take on the essential roles of (1) synthesizing natural products and their derivatives and (2) probing the biological activities of naturally-inspired chromanones. A PhD organic synthesis and/or medicinal chemistry is required, as are excellent oral and written communication skills. The positions are open immediately and applications are being accepted until the positions are filled.
