Search Jobs: Results: VP of Discovery Chemistry Services

My well-established Indian based contract development and pharmaceutical manufacturing services client is seeking a highly motivated Head of Discovery Chemistry Services. This role would report directly into their COO and be responsible for a large department encompassing various sub-groups (discovery chemistry, medicinal chemistry, early stage analytical support, and computer-aided design development).   The role would have 10-15 direct reports (Manager/Director level) and overall size of department over 300.

 Due to their continued expansion, they have a need to bring on board someone with a strong technical background with previous fee-for-service (contract pharma) experience who will be one of the first points of technical contact for new clients seeking to discuss their capabilities (along with close interactions with their Business Development group).  This VP will also be expected to work strategically with executive management to propose additional technologies/services to grow their discovery services and have P&L responsibility for their department.

 The role would involve quite a bit of international travel (conferences/potential and current clients along with their Business Development representatives).

 A strong preference is for this role to be based at their main facilities in Bangalore.   The COO may consider highly qualified candidate who wants to maintain a home base in the US with frequent travel to India and to clients in the US.


 Ph.D. in Organic or Medicinal Chemistry or closely related

12+ years of pharmaceutical industry experience in early discovery/medicinal chemistry

Record of previous leadership managing large departments in the pharma industry

Some industry experience should be within a fee-for-service environment (highly qualified candidates may be considered without this experience)


Excellent verbal and written communication skills
