FMC Discovery has an immediate opening for enthusiastic, creative and talented synthetic organic chemists to join the Discovery Process Chemistry (DPC) group at Stine Research Center in Newark, DE. The DPC group facilitates research in the discovery stages of our pipeline by providing innovative solutions to complex chemistry problems. The position is responsible for devising, validating and optimizing scalable synthetic routes as well as carrying out synthesis campaigns to support our discovery efforts. DPC chemists also work closely with Process Development to facilitate the transition of lead compounds from discovery to early development.
We are seeking Ph.D. level chemists with a strong background in synthetic organic chemistry research. Candidates must demonstrate an expert understanding of modern synthetic methodologies, organic reaction mechanisms and current laboratory techniques and be able to apply this knowledge toward the synthesis of complex small molecules. The successful candidate will be able to work independently, but also collaborate effectively with an interdisciplinary team of scientists, including discovery chemists, process chemists and biologists.
Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry or a related discipline is required, and further post-doctoral or industrial work experience is desirable.
