Drug Discovery Opportunities at D. E. Shaw Research
D. E. Shaw Research is seeking outstanding scientists with expertise in structure-based drug design or related areas to join our New York–based team. This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.
Areas relevant to our efforts include computer-aided drug design, fragment-based approaches, molecular modeling, cheminformatics and bioinformatics, medicinal chemistry, and target analysis and selection. Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than exceptional intellectual ability and a record of impact in drug discovery.
Successful candidates will directly contribute to research projects and further the group’s drug discovery aims. We are committed to fostering a stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work environment, and we offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional ability.
D. E. Shaw Research is pursuing an ambitious, long-term strategy aimed at fundamentally transforming the process of drug discovery. We have developed a special-purpose supercomputer, ANTON®, capable of simulating biomolecular phenomena that are relevant to the understanding and potential treatment of cancer, diabetes, and a wide variety of other diseases.
D. E. Shaw Research is an equal opportunity employer, dedicated to the goal of building a diverse workforce.
