Schrödinger's aims to revolutionize drug discovery through the use of breakthrough computational methods. We deploy these methods through software sales and by using them to advance our own internal drug discovery efforts.

We're currently seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher with experience modeling bifunctional protein degraders, cyclic peptides, macrocycles, peptides, or other beyond rule-of-five molecules to extend the domain of applicability of our tools.

Who will love this job

  • A computational chemist who can look beyond conventional small molecules and biologics to identify new therapeutics
  • A researcher with a track record of developing or expanding methods to determine these properties in silico and a desire to learn new approaches to the problem
  • A proficient coder who has experience using python or other programming languages to implement algorithms and test hypothesis
  • An excellent communicator who enjoys working with teammates across disciplines and departments

What you'll do


  • Develop computational tools that will aid in the design of bifunctional degraders for internal and external efforts
  • Publish scientific papers and present at conferences on the tools and their applications

What you should have



  • Ph.D. in computational chemistry, bioinformatics, biophysics, computer science, or a related field
  • Strong scientific programming skills (Python preferred)
