  The Emeryville Structural Based Drug Design (SBDD) Center, co-localized with the Novartis Institute for Tropical Diseases (NITD) in the San Francisco Bay Area, is seeking a self-motivated research scientist with expertise in Biomolecular NMR spectroscopy or a related biophysical or analytical method to join our Structural & Biophysical Chemistry group. The successful candidate will be an integral member of local and global structure-based drug discovery teams and will support our efforts to develop innovative medicines for various therapeutic areas like oncology, immuno-oncology, cardiovascular, respiratory, auto-immune, neurological and tropical diseases.

Your Responsibilities
• Prepare Bio-NMR samples as well as record and analyze spectra of proteins, peptides, nucleic acids and small molecules
• Independently interpret data and present results to internal project teams and global stakeholders to help drive our drug discovery projects
• Develop and/or implement new NMR assays to probe the structure, dynamics and interactions of biomolecules and ligands
• Maintain an in-house Bio-NMR laboratory consisting of high-field spectrometers with associated computing and robotics
• Perform lab and office duties, such as ordering reagents, organizing inventories and keeping experimental records
• Contribute intellectually to structure-based drug discovery projects and collaborate with partners from other disciplines like disease biology, biochemistry, chemistry, bioinformatics, and IT
