D. E. Shaw Research is seeking Ph.D.–level scientists of exceptional ability to join our New York–based team.  This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.  Candidates should have expertise in computational biophysics or chemistry, structural biology, or drug discovery. 

Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of molecular dynamics or machine learning to drug discovery, computer-aided drug design, molecular modeling, cheminformatics, fragment-based approaches, medicinal chemistry, biochemical and biophysical assay development, or target analysis and selection.  Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than outstanding intellectual ability and a history of innovation and accomplishment. Successful candidates will directly further the group’s drug discovery aims.  This is anticipated to be a three year position.

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 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 simulating biomolecular phenomena that are relevant to the understanding and potential treatment of cancer, diabetes, and a wide variety of other diseases.

D. E. Shaw Research is an equal opportunity employer, dedicated to the goal of building a diverse workforce. 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 the Firm operates.

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.
