Job Description
At Pfizer, the Medicine Design department focuses on small molecule drug discovery efforts in multiple disease areas. We are striving to apply cutting-edge computational methods on comprehensive datasets to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of disease and drive the development of novel therapeutics. Our location in Cambridge MA is at the center of biomedical innovation, facilitating collaborations with local universities and biotech companies.

The cheminformatics-focused Computational Pharmacology Group within Medicine Design is seeking an experienced and self-driven individual to design and implement cheminformatics techniques and workflows to help accelerate our drug discovery process. The successful candidate will play a key role in unlocking the underlying value of Pfizer’s wealth of proprietary pharmacology and related research data. The ideal candidate will design, deploy and automate data workflows to mine, organize and integrate data from a variety of internal and external database sources. The candidate will also develop cheminformatics analytics methods and tools that support the decision-making process of drug designers on projects across all of Pfizer’s therapeutic areas. The scientist will have opportunities to make impact directly on drug discovery projects through clear communication of actionable insights with data-driven analyses. With strong communication skills and adept at building productive partnerships, the successful candidate will thrive working in cross-functional teams with talented scientists across different disciplines. The ability to think innovatively, manage complex technical challenges, strong attention to detail, and a drive to problem solving will make this role a success.¬†
