Our drug discovery group includes designers, modelers, computational chemists, medicinal chemists, crystallographers, biochemists, and biologists with experience working on all common target classes and therapeutic areas. We also engage with Contract Research Organizations (CRO) and Consultants. The group is supported by more than 100 software developers and engineers as well as a large scale compute infrastructure.

  • An experienced manager and coordinator who can handle multiple projects in a timely and effective manner
  • A veteran designer of exploratory and GLP toxicology studies for discovery screens and regulatory submissions

What you'll do:
  • Lead toxicology efforts from drug candidates selection through IND filing
  • Participate in multi-disciplinary team efforts and implement program-specific toxicology strategies to support compound and program progression
  • Design and monitor exploratory and GLP-compliant toxicology studies at CRO partners
  • Write and review toxicology reports and documentation for regulatory filings

What you should have:
  • A PhD in pharmacology, toxicology or a related discipline, with a minimum of ten years of industry experience preferred

Pay and perks:

Schrödinger understands it's people that make a company great. Because of this, we're prepared to offer a competitive salary, stock options, and a wide range of benefits that include healthcare (with dental and vision), a 401k, pre-tax commuter benefits, a flexible work schedule, and a parental leave program. We have catered meals in the office every day, a company culture that is relaxed but engaged, and over a month of paid vacation time. Our Administrative and Human Resources departments also plan a myriad of fun company-wide events. New York is home to our largest office, but we have teams all over the world. Schrödinger is honored to have been selected as one of Crain's New York Best Places to Work in 2018 and 2019.
