About the Department
The Molecular AI team is part of Novo Nordisk’s Computational Drug Design (CDD) area where we apply and develop state of the art capabilities in predictive science, AI/ML and structure-based drug design. Scientists within CDD collaborate seamlessly with teams across the globe to invent better molecules faster. With an unbiased approach to drug modalities, in-house access to the newest screening techniques, and world-class experimentation, we have a wealth of opportunities to impact our pipeline and ultimately save and improve patient lives. We work in multidisciplinary, highly collaborative discovery teams both locally and across Novo Nordisk’s global network to invent novel medicines by applying advanced computational techniques and developing innovative computational methods. We engage in external collaborations to ensure access to cutting edge research and technology.
Molecular AI is working to establish ourselves as global leaders in the research, development, and application of small molecule, peptides and RNA. We support cutting-edge research projects and develop innovative technologies in this field. We foster strong collaborations with Research Chemistry within our Global Research and Technology (GRT) organization and the Dicerna Transformational Research Unit (TRU). With a team of scientists located in both Denmark and the United States, we strive to deliver the latest advancements in small molecules, peptides and RNA to benefit patient health and global medicine.
We believe in the value of a diverse and inclusive culture. Together, we build and grow talent to ensure the development of new solutions. The team is comprised of collaborative, diverse and passionate people who have a true sense of pride in their work. We are committed to helping each other grow, and we are driven by the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people living with chronic disease. Everything we do starts and ends with the patient. And, while changing the future of chronic disease treatment, such as diabetes and obesity, is no easy task, we also recognize the importance of an enjoyable workplace, which is why we’ve cultivated a culture of fun, ingenuity, and innovation. Our competitive compensation package and support of a healthy work-life balance all add to a best-in-class employee experience.
Please note we are open to hiring at more senior titles commensurate with experience
