Schrödinger Medicinal Chemistry Scientist Vacancy – Apply Online

They are looking for a highly motivated medicinal chemist to join our team of scientists to advance drug discovery projects driven by cutting-edge computational methods in structure-based drug discovery. The ideal candidate will be an expert in modern methods of organic synthesis, hands-on experience in planning and execution of multi-step synthesis of complex heterocycles and/or natural products, analysis of structure-activity relationship (SAR) and multiparameter optimization for nominating drug candidates.

Job Title: Medicinal Chemistry Scientist

Location – Hyderabad

Essential Qualifications, Skills and Experience:

  • Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry or Medicinal Chemistry with postdoctoral training (preferred) and 4+ years of relevant experience (Pharmaceutical/Biotech industry, CRO, or other relevant experience) with proven track record in medicinal chemistry.
  • Expert knowledge of synthetic organic chemistry and strong track record of planning and hands-on execution of multi-step synthesis. Developing and directing clear synthetic routes/strategies towards complex molecules using state-of-the-art synthetic methodologies in a time-sensitive manner..
  • Proficient in interpretation of analytical methods for compound characteristics (1D and 2D NMR, LC/MS, and other analytical techniques).
  • Demonstrated track record of innovative solutions to research problems and delivering on project goals
  • Excellent communication skills (verbal, written, and presentation)

Desired Skills and Experience:

  • Experience in medicinal chemistry
  • Experience with outsourcing synthetic chemistry via CRO’s
  • Experience with structure-based drug design (SBDD) and actively collaborating with Computational Chemist / molecular modelers on drug discovery programs.
  • Exposure to intellectual property management, patent analysis. Understanding of Biology, Pharmacology, DMPK, Toxicology and ability to integrate these disciplines toward successful project progression.


  • Design and synthesis of the New Chemical Entities (NCEs) for drug discovery programs
  • Provide synthetic chemistry expertise and actively collaborate with computational chemists, medicinal chemists, biologists and other scientists in drug discovery projects
  • Design drug substances to address specific issues and optimize multi-parameter for identifying preclinical development candidates
  • Design and optimize synthetic routes for small molecule targets emerging from next generation modeling approaches
  • Manage CRO-based synthesis efforts to access small molecule targets
  • Contribute to evaluation of new drug target opportunities.
  • Work closely with the internal software development teams to improve Schrödinger’s drug discovery technologies
