D. E. Shaw Research is seeking exceptional computational chemists and biologists, as well as other computational scientists with a track record of extraordinary 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 or other computational methods to drug discovery, investigation of conformational changes relevant to the function of protein kinases, ion channels, or other biomolecules, structural modeling of protein–protein complexes involved in signal transduction or other cellular processes, or study of fundamental biophysical problems, such as protein and RNA folding.  Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than outstanding intellectual ability, unusually strong research skills, and a history of innovation and accomplishment. 

Permanent senior scientist and postdoctoral fellowship opportunities are available. We are committed to fostering a stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work environment, and we offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional ability.
