Drug Discovery Opportunities at D. E. Shaw Research

D. E. Shaw Research is seeking scientists with experience in computational drug discovery 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 of expertise relevant to our molecular dynamics–based drug discovery efforts include molecular modeling, fragment–based drug design, cheminformatics, and medicinal chemistry.  An ability to leverage experimental data to inform computational approaches would be a plus, as would knowledge of structural biology.  Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than strong research skills, and a record of impact in drug discovery.

A successful hire will directly contribute to projects within our expanding portfolio of drug discovery programs, which we pursue both independently and in collaboration with leaders in academia and industry.

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

D. E. Shaw Research is pursuing long–term projects aimed at fundamentally transforming the process of drug discovery and achieving major scientific advances in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology using high–performance computation for molecular dynamics simulations. We have developed multiple generations of the ANTON® special-purpose supercomputer as well as a variety of simulation tools that run on commodity clusters and GPUs.

D. E. Shaw Research is an equal opportunity employer, dedicated to the goal of building a diverse workforce. We welcome inquiries from all exceptionally well-qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, nationality, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, caste, gender, gender identity, pregnancy, caregiver status, age, military service eligibility, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital or civil partner status, disability, or status in any other category protected in this regard by law in any jurisdiction in which we operate.
