D. E. Shaw Research is seeking scientists with experience in computational drug discovery or related areas to join our New York–based team.  This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.

Areas of expertise relevant to our molecular dynamics–based drug discovery efforts include molecular modeling, machine learning, fragment–based drug design, cheminformatics, and medicinal chemistry.  An ability to leverage experimental data to inform computational approaches would be a plus, as would knowledge of structural biology.  Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than strong research skills, and a record of impact in drug discovery.

A successful hire will directly contribute to projects within our expanding portfolio of drug discovery programs, which we pursue both independently and in collaboration with leaders in academia and industry.

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 (DESRES) is a New York-based drug discovery and computational biochemistry research company developing and using advanced computational technologies to understand the behavior of biologically and pharmaceutically significant molecules at an atomic level of detail, and to design precisely targeted, highly selective drugs for the treatment of various diseases.  Among our core technologies is a proprietary special-purpose supercomputer called ANTON® which we designed and constructed to perform molecular dynamics simulations more than 100 times faster than the world's fastest general-purpose supercomputers.  DESRES develops and refines advanced biomolecular modeling methods, software, and machine learning techniques on ANTON®, as well as on general-purpose supercomputers, in order to pursue both internal and collaborative drug discovery programs.

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 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.
