De Novo Pharmaceuticals is a start-up company of the University of
Cambridge whose mission is to apply in silico drug design and other
computational chemistry techniques to the novel therapeutic targets coming
from the Human Genome Project. De Novo works in collaboration with other
pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to design novel, patentable
chemical leads based on their proprietary chemistries.
Due to future expansion of our research team, we are seeking a
computational facility manager to oversee the company's SGI Power
Challenge server, graphics workstations and PC network. The manager will
have a BA/Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, computer science or a related field
and should have extensive experience in system administration. It is
essential that the candidate have a thorough background in Unix and
Windows operating systems, HTML, Perl, Java and/or C++ and experience
developing web applications. Experience developing database applications
and knowledge of modern computational chemistry and molecular modelling
techniques are definite advantages, as there is the possibility of
participating in the creation of web-based, database-driven software to
advance drug discovery and development efforts.
The successful candidate will have good communication and teamwork skills,
as he/she will have to interact with research scientists and staff in
general on a regular basis to support their work, and be responsible for
system administration, computer and software maintenance. Salary will be
commensurate with experience and skills.
