Opportunities at the Center for Drug Discovery

Postdoctoral Positions

The Center for Drug Discovery is dedicated to finding novel medications, developing and applying technologies that increase the success of discovering new therapeutic agents, and training scientists in the multidisciplinary field of modern drug discovery. To help fulfill this mission, we employ a number of Postdoctoral Research Associates who specialize in a range of fields. Under the guidance of the Center’s Director, these postdoctoral researchers perform hands-on research using the Center’s state-of-the-art biochemical, biophysical, cell and molecular biology, metabolomics, proteomics, and medicinal chemistry approaches.

If you would like to be considered for a postdoctoral position at the Center, please send an electronic copy of your academic CV with a letter of intent to Brett Greene. Please go to for more information.

Graduate Students

The Center for Drug Discovery is always looking for well qualified and highly motivated graduate students to strengthen its research activities. Prospective students should apply through Graduate admissions to the Chemistry and Chemical Biology Ph.D. program through the College of Science or to the Pharmaceutical Science Ph.D. program through the Bouve School of Health Sciences.

Work Study Students

The Center for Drug Discovery employs a number of work study students in both our labs and our administrative office. Students working in the labs have the opportunity to assit our research scientists and learn about laboratory maintenance and function. Students working in our administrative office assist our staff with a range of projects, including developing and implementing adminstrative policies. We find that working in the Center is particularly of interest to students majoring in or interested in the sciences, especially, biology, chemistry and pharmacy, and students who are interested in business administration and accounting; however, we consider students in any field who show a keen interest in the Center’s work.

A work-study position with the CDD is often an excellent opportunity to gain real-world experience and build your resume while you are still in college. Please note that previous laboratory experience is generally required for all lab work-study positions.

If you are interested in a position in our office please stop in to 116 Mugar or email Amanda DiCristoforo.

The Center for Drug Discovery is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.
