Computational Chemist

  • Option for fully remote working
  • Help with the discovery of solutions geared towards positive environmental impact!



  • Demonstrable background in Computational Chemistry, ideally gained through industry experience - but those with relevant research & academic experience are also encouraged to apply!
  • Exposure to the agrochemical, pharmaceutical or biotech sector desirable... but not essential.
  • An understanding of ligand and structure-based design, pharmacophores, conformational analysis and homology modelling.



The use of environmentally harmful chemicals in the Agriculture and Crops sector is being increasingly clamped down upon - whilst this is positive news for the health of our planet, it leaves a massive hole in the food system when it comes to our ability to produce crops efficiently and at the required scale.

This company, growing rapidly with significant funding behind them, are on a mission to tackle this problem through the discovery and development of new, sustainable and environmentally friendly plant and crop treatment solutions.

A number of discovery platforms have been developed to serve this purpose, therefore a Computational Chemist is required to play a key role in delivering a computation chemistry platform which is key to what this company does.

Demonstrable Computational Chemistry experience will be required, ideally gained from industry experience and in particular exposure to sectors such as AgroChemicals, Pharmaceutical or BioTech - however, these are all desirables rather than essentials, and anybody with relevant Computational Chemistry experience gained from alternative sectors, or academia / research, is also encouraged to get in touch.

If you're somebody who wants to utilise your skills in a role that will see you make a positive impact on our planet and food system, apply now to learn more!
