Octarine is a synthetic biology company based in Copenhagen Denmark producing functionally superior cannabinoids using engineered microbes. We have developed in-cell enzymatic platforms capable of making precise, stereospecific, and functionally relevant modifications to cannabinoid molecules to enhance their therapeutic and pharmacokinetic activity, expanding the chemical diversity of cannabinoid molecules beyond what is available in nature in ways that are impossible or infeasible to achieve using chemical synthesis.
We’re looking for an analytical chemist to analyze the structures and chemical features of the novel cannabinoid molecules produced through our platform. You will be tasked with handling complex reaction mixtures and using an array of analytical methods to separate and analyze the resulting molecules. Furthermore, given the often unknown features of our molecules you will need to develop and implement methods that can reliably identify molecules of interest.
Ideally you will have experience in as many of the following skills as possible;
– Setting up and running analytical equipment e.g. HPLC, LC-MS
– Developing analytical methods to detect of variety of different molecules
– Drug discovery, knowledge of structure/function relationship in drug development
– Experience in elucidation the structure of novel molecules e.g. by NMR
Candidates should ideally have a PhD in analytical chemistry, drug development or a related field or equivalent industrial experience.
