Synthetic chemists work very closely with chemical and molecular biologists in designing, synthesizing, and assaying molecules for their intended biological effects. Synthetic chemistry work will involve very basic science involving methodological development of new chemical reactions and synthetic strategies, compound library synthesis for screening, as well as the functionalization of biologics. Biological work will involve tissue culture, running compound assays, and proteomics experiments. Candidates should have a strong background in relevant areas of chemistry or biology. For additional information see


Ph.D. in organic chemistry, biochemistry, chemical biology, or other relevant fields.
