Computational Chemistry and Biology Opportunities at D. E. Shaw Research

D. E. Shaw Research

New York, NY, United States

D. E. Shaw Research is seeking computational chemists and biologists, as well as other computational scientists with a track record of achievement, to join our New York–based team. This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.

Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of molecular dynamics, machine learning, or other computational methods to drug discovery, investigation of conformational changes relevant to the function of therapeutically relevant biomolecules, structural modeling of protein–protein or protein-nucleic acid complexes involved in signal transduction or other cellular processes, or the study of fundamental biophysical problems, such as protein and RNA folding. Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than strong research skills, and a history of innovation and accomplishment.

We are committed to fostering a stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work environment, and we offer above-market compensation. In addition, we strive to support the personal and professional needs of our team members by offering generous benefits, opportunities for community engagement, and a variety of learning and development programs.

D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research group that 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 executing molecular dynamics (MD) simulations orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible. Our current projects include investigations of proteins and other biomedically relevant macromolecules as well as the development of computational chemistry methods to enable more accurate and effective MD simulations.

D. E. Shaw Research is an equal opportunity employer, dedicated to the goal of building a diverse workforce. We embrace diversity along all dimensions, and respect and value the unique qualities, perspectives, and identities of every person in our group. 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.
