  • Manage one to two drug discovery/early drug development programs (these could be internally-owned programs and/or alliances with external partners)
  • Collaborate with the internal team to drive projects and with pharma, biotech, and/or academic partners to optimize the relationship and program progress
  • Manage timelines, budgets, project documentation, communication, and follow-up
  • Understand, communicate, and negotiate contractual elements internally, with partners, and with service providers
  • Support the Drug Discovery organization by owning processes and tools required to efficiently drive discovery efforts, including:
    • CRO and consultant engagement
    • Portfolio reporting and analysis
    • Meetings and other communication media

What you should have:

  • A high level of expertise with drug discovery and/or development
  • Excellent project management background
  • Experience working with CROs and academic institutions

Pay and perks:

Schrödinger understands it’s people that make a company great. Because of this, we’re prepared to offer a competitive salary, stock options, and a wide range of benefits that include healthcare (with dental and vision), a 401k, pre-tax commuter benefits, a flexible work schedule, and a parental leave program. We have catered meals in the office every day, a company culture that is relaxed but engaged, and over a month of paid vacation time.  Our Administrative and Human Resources departments also plan a myriad of fun company-wide events. New York is home to our largest office, but we have teams all over the world.
