Description

D. E. Shaw Research is seeking outstanding scientists with expertise in structure-based drug design or related areas to join our New Yorkbased team.  This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.

Areas relevant to our efforts include computer-aided drug design, fragment-based approaches, molecular modeling, cheminformatics and bioinformatics, medicinal chemistry, and target analysis and selection.  Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than exceptional intellectual ability and a record of impact in drug discovery.

Successful candidates will directly contribute to research projects and further the group’s drug discovery aims.  We are committed to fostering a stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work environment, and we offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional ability.

D. E. Shaw Research ("DESRES") is engaged in scientific research and technological development in the field of computational biochemistry, including The design of novel algorithms and machine architectures for high-speed molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of proteins and other biological macromolecules. In particular, we have designed and constructed a specialized supercomputer called Anton, which executes such simulations orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible, along with a number of software tools and techniques that facilitate their execution and analysis. The use of long MD simulations to study the structural changes underlying biological phenomena that occur on time scales far in excess of those previously accessible to computational study, with the ultimate aim of significantly advancing the process of drug discovery. We have been investigating, for example, the mechanisms of certain cellular receptors, transport proteins, and enzymes relevant to the understanding and potential treatment of cancer, diabetes, and other diseases.

Our research team includes computational chemists and biologists, computer scientists and applied mathematicians, and computer architects and engineers, all working collaboratively under the leadership of its chief scientist, David Shaw.
