Computational Chemistry And Biology Opportunities At D. E. Shaw Research

American Chemical Society New York City , NY 10008

Posted 3 weeks ago

D. E. Shaw Research is seeking Ph.D.-level scientists of exceptional ability to join our New York-based team.

This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment. Candidates should have expertise in computational biophysics or chemistry, structural biology, or drug discovery.

Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of molecular dynamics or machine learning to drug discovery, computer-aided drug design, molecular modeling, cheminformatics, fragment-based approaches, medicinal chemistry, biochemical and biophysical assay development, or target analysis and selection. Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than outstanding intellectual ability and a history of innovation and accomplishment.

Successful candidates will directly further the group's drug discovery aims. This is anticipated to be a three year position.

We are committed to fostering a stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work environment, and we offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional ability.

VIEW JOBS 2/7/2020 12:00:00 AM 2020-05-07T00:00 D. E. Shaw Research is seeking postdoctoral fellows of exceptional ability to join our New York–based team. This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment. Candidates should have expertise in computational, theoretical, or quantum chemistry, computational biophysics, structural biology, drug discovery, theoretical chemical physics, applied mathematics, or in a relevant area of computer science. Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of molecular dynamics or other computational methods to drug discovery, investigation of allosteric interactions or other functionally important conformational changes in biological molecules, structure prediction or design for proteins or RNA, study of protein-protein or protein-nucleic acid interactions, force field improvement through detailed comparisons of simulation data with NMR measurements or other experimental data, development and implementation of new methodology, such as integrators or efficient approximations of long-range forces, methods for enhanced sampling or free-energy calculations, or tools to efficiently analyze large simulation datasets. Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than outstanding intellectual ability, unusually strong research skills, and a history of innovation and accomplishment. We are committed to fostering a stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work environment, and we offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional ability.
