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.
