Post doctoral fellow in Organic Synthesis

The Laboratory of Synthesis of Natural Products located at the Department of Chemistry, Federal University of São Carlos, Brazil, has a postdoctoral fellowship available to work in the project Quinoxaline derivatives as antiparasitic drugs: proof of concept .The main objective of this project is to prove the biological activity of quinoxaline derivatives in the drug development for tropical diseases such as Chagas' disease and leishmaniasis. More specifically, our goal is the synthesis of quinoxaline derivatives aiming at improving yield, a scalable and safe process and decreasing of chemical residues.Candidates should send CV to Professor Arlene Corrêa until April 30, 2016.This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. The selected candidate will receive a FAPESP's Post-Doctoral fellowship from May, 2016 to February, 2017. More information about the fellowship is at: www.fapesp.br/en/5427.
