Schrödinger seeks a Solid State Property Modeling Scientist to aid us in our mission to improve human health and quality of life through the development, distribution, and application of advanced computational methods!

As a member of our Life Sciences Software team, you'll work with cutting-edge, physics-based technologies in drug discovery and materials design. Your background in computational chemistry, solid state physics, quantum mechanics, and/or free energy calculations will make you a key contributor in our efforts to revolutionize the way therapeutics and materials are discovered.

Who will love this job:
  • A scientist with extensive training in quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and solid state physics who has practical experience with modeling solid state properties
  • A skilled modeler who understands with small molecule crystal structures
  • A knowledgeable solid state calculator who's examined solubility and thermostability
  • A drug formulation expert with excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • A proficient Python and/or C++ programmer who's worked in UNIX/Linux environments

What you'll do:
  • Facilitate breakthroughs in computer-aided drug discovery and materials design by delivering novel methods with unprecedented levels of accuracy
  • Work with a team of scientists and engineers to develop novel methods to accurately model the thermodynamic properties of crystal structures, including solubility, thermostability, etc.
  • Carefully design computational experiments and collect data to validate the methods and explore applications areas

What you should have:
  • PhD in computational chemistry, solid state physics, solid state property modeling, or related fields
  • Strong knowledge in periodic DFT methods development and extensive experience in applying these methods to solid state property predictions
  • Peer-reviewed publications on solid state property modeling, computational chemistry, and/or materials modeling
  • Experience in crystal polymorph energy ranking is (highly desired).
