March 13, 2025 - Automated Synthesis Engineer

Our company seeks a motivated individual to work in our growing Automated Synthesis division.

Experience: Qualified candidates should have 5+ years previous experience in chemistry, mechanical engineering, or robosynthesis. Ideally, you'll have completed 10 (or more) previous multi-step total syntheses using 3D-Flow ModuloChem-XLs.

Software: Candidate should feel comfortable using the IBM SynBlox suite for fragment assembly, exploring GDB-23 for potential lead molecules, and assessing synthetic feasibility using the OPRD Engyn iPhone 9 app.

Special skills: Our synthesizers often require adjustments, thus experience in a trade - plumbing, welding, electrical - would be highly valued. Candidates interested in creating holographic "how-to" vidlets especially encouraged to apply.
