Open Positions

We are looking for postdoctoral fellows with experience in organic chemistry and/or medicinal chemistry who are interested in developing novel antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for effective cancer treatment. This is a unique opportunity to work at the interface of chemistry and biology, which includes not only chemical synthesis and biological studies, but also cross-disciplinary collaboration with immunologists, cancer biologists, and clinical researchers.

Applicants should be independent, highly motivated individuals with a strong organic chemistry and/or medicinal chemistry background and excellent research qualifications. In particular, we prioritize candidates with experience in enzyme-based and cell-based assays and protein chemistry (protein expression, purification, and modification). Successful candidates must hold a doctoral degree, have an excellent publication record, and demonstrate excellent communication and writing skills.

To apply submit a compiled PDF file including:

  • CV

  • A brief research statement with your career goal

  • A list of publications

  • Contact information for three references

To: Dr. Kyoji Tsuchikama, Kyoji.Tsuchikama<at> Please write “Postdoc Application” in the subject of your e-mail.
