Iconix Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a San Francisco Bay Area biopharmaceutical
company, is seeking highly motivated individuals interested in pursuing an
exciting career in the new area of Chemical Genomics.   The company’s approach
will advance the discovery process for human drugs through the systematic
acquisition, integration and analysis of genetic and chemical information.
State of the art information management and analysis tools are a key component
of the approach.  The successful candidate will join a growing team of
computational scientists and software development experts.  This team carries
the responsibility to build and support the computational environment that is
central to the success of the new enterprise.

DATABASE APPLICATION DEVELOPERS are needed to design and build database
applications and graphical user-interfaces to query and display biological,
chemical and genetic data using Oracle and Web technologies.  You will work
in a team of scientists and engineers to develop applications that access
information in a proprietary integrated drug discovery database.  Candidates
will have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, at least 5 years
experience developing professional grade software, and experience building
web-based Oracle applications and user-interfaces using Java, SQL,
object-oriented design, JDBC and HTML.	Formal training in biology or
chemistry is a plus.

COMPUTATIONAL SCIENTISTS are needed to develop and implement new algorithms
for interpreting large, complex data sets generated from the interaction of
many small molecules with numerous gene products.  Ideal candidates will have
a Ph.D. in computer science and demonstrated success in applying
sophisticated computation to real-world problems (e.g. drug discovery,
computational biology, object recognition, robotics, etc.).  Experience in
machine-learning, computational geometry, or physical modeling is beneficial,
as is formal training in chemistry, biology, or physics.  As the member of an
interdisciplinary team, you will develop, implement, and apply novel
algorithms to the interpretation of chemical and biological information.

Candidates for these positions will have excellent communication skills,
excellent work history and references, and the ability to work both
independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team of scientists, including
colleagues from biology, chemistry, genetics, and other fields.

These are exciting opportunities for engineers and scientists with
initiative, flexibility, and energy to contribute to a young organization
that is emerging as a leader in its field.  We offer competitive salaries,
stock options and excellent benefits.  Please send or fax your resume to:
Human Resources Dept., Iconix Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 850 Maude Avenue,
Mountain View, CA  94043.  Attn: Computational Science Group #655-SJM.	FAX
