Merck Chemistry is currently hiring PhDs!

In partnership with the VU Chemistry Graduate Program and the BRET Office of Career Development ASPIRE Program, Merck will be hosting a Vanderbilt-specific virtual employer information session about Chemistry and Chemistry-related open positions for current graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Vanderbilt alumnus Brandon Vara, PhD, will be talking more about the current openings and what Merck is doing in the Chemistry and Chemical Biology field. Later that afternoon, Dr. Vara will be meeting one-on-one with PhD students and postdocs who submitted their resumes prior to the session.

VIRTUAL Merck Chemistry Info Session
Thursday, May 16
Register for the virtual info session event here.

Interested in an informal meeting with someone from Merck about these Chemistry-related roles? 

SUBMIT your resume  by MAY 6 for this virtual post-event “coffee chat” opportunity with Merck after the May 16th  session.

Not interested in chemistry roles but still interested in Merck? This September, the ASPIRE Program will be hosting a Merck alumni showcase of Merck roles, including R&D, analytical, business development, and medical affairs. Stay tuned for information to be announced over the summer!

From Merck: We are excited to announce that Merck Chemistry is kicking off recruiting in 2024 and has recently posted multiple positions for Bachelor’s, Master’s, and PhD-levels at our US-based Discovery Sites in Boston (MA), Cambridge (MA), Rahway (NJ), South San Francisco (CA), and West Point (PA).  We are seeking highly motivated individuals looking for an opportunity to work in a science-driven, highly collaborative environment while developing their careers in drug discovery.  Positions available are in the areas of medicinal chemistry (small molecules, peptides, bioconjugates), modeling & informatics / AI/ML, chemical biology (proteomics), synthesis/data science, and separation sciences (high-throughput purification).  In general, we are looking for candidates that can start in 2024 for all positions, but please reach out with any questions on timing for specific roles.
