Open Positions at Warren Center For Neuroscience Drug Discovery

The Warren Center for Neuroscience Drug Discovery at Vanderbilt University is actively seeking BS level scientists to join their team. Many of the center’s BS level scientists use this opportunity to gain experience and publications before entering a Graduate or Professional program.

The Warren Center is directed by Dr. Craig Linsley (editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry) and is located about 20 minutes south of Nashville, TN. While the Warren Center is known best for its neuroscience and work in GPCRs, they have funding for several other projects outside of the neuroscience world. Additionally, the WCNDD is great place to work with state-of-the-art instrumentation akin to what one would encounter in BigPharma.

If you are interested, you should email your CV and research summary to Kayla Temple at kayla.temple@vanderbilt.edu.
