Nature and Scope: 
We are currently hiring a talented cell biologist and/or biochemist to join the Discovery Research CNS Biology group based in Belgium. The remits of the group include but are not limited to support our pre-clinical CNS projects 
  • by developing  differentiating and disease relevant biochemical and cell based assays, 
  • by screening compounds and delivering high quality data in a timely fashion and 
  • by studying and understanding the mechanism of action of more advanced compounds in order to select only the best candidates to progress into the clinic.
In order to achieve these goals the group has access to state of the art equipment and technologies either internally or through collaborations. 

To further strengthen our capabilities, we are seeking a highly skilled, lab-based scientist with experience in drug target interactions, signaling pathways, cell biology and/or biomarkers. 

The candidate will provide high quality data and scientific support as full member of project teams. Keeping up-to-date with relevant scientific literature to pro-actively identify and recommend new targets  or new assays / technologies will be essential. Whenever possible, publications of data in peer reviewed journals is also highly encouraged.

  • and will have a proven track record of publications in peer reviewed, high quality science journals.  
  • She/He  is able to set-up bespoke assays to probe drug target interactions (binding assays), signaling pathways, mode of actions of drugs and knows how to quantify and analyze relevant data and parameters using adequately described mathematical models (using Excel and/or Graphpad Prism). 
  • Expertise in receptor, ion channel, enzyme pharmacology or/and in cellular signaling pathways is essential.  
  • Knowledge in Neurosciences and basic molecular biology will be considered as additional assets. 
Education & Soft skills  
  • PhD level, preferably with experience in a bio-pharmaceutical environment.
