Schrödinger, a technology leader specializing in software solutions for life and materials science research and development, seeks a Quantum Mechanics Developer with experience in method and software engineering.

Who will love this job:

  • A quantum chemist who has experience efficiently implementing cutting edge electronic structure methodologies and has a proven track record of scientific contributions to computational/theoretical chemistry or a related field
  • An experienced software developer who enjoys writing Python, FORTRAN, and/or C/C++ code in a collaborative environment while adhering to good engineering practices (previous experience with a large software project in the field of molecular electronic structure theory or molecular dynamics is a plus!)
  • A diligent student of minima- and transition state-finding methodologies, who also understands mixed quantum-classical mechanical (QM/MM) methods

What you’ll do:

  • Deliver workflows that impact research in life and materials science industries
  • Develop new methods to predict pKa, solvation energy, covalent inhibition rates and other important properties using Density Functional Theory
  • Contribute to fundamental improvements in our molecular electronic structure code (Jaguar)

What you should have:

  • PhD in physical, theoretical, computational, or quantum chemistry
  • Previous experience in one or more of the following application areas: catalysis, pKa prediction, solution phase equilibria, reactivity prediction and mixed quantum-classical simulations

Pay and perks:

Schrödinger understands it’s people that make a company great. Because of this, we’re prepared to offer a competitive salary, stock options, and a wide range of benefits that include healthcare (with dental and vision), a 401k, pre-tax commuter benefits, a flexible work schedule, and a parental leave program. We have catered meals in the office every day, a company culture that is relaxed but engaged, and over a month of paid vacation time.  Our Administrative and Human Resources departments also plan a myriad of fun company-wide events. New York is home to our largest office, but we have teams all over the world. Schrödinger is honored to have been selected as one of Crain's New York Best Places to Work for three years running.

We've been working remotely from across the world over the past few months because the health and safety of our employees is paramount. Nonetheless, we have kept Schrödinger's outstanding culture going through a series of online fitness classes, trivia nights, happy hours, and so much more.
