Subject: 17.05.25 Senior Scientist, Protein Structure Prediction / Homology Modeling, Schrödinger, NYC

Schrödinger has over 300 engineers, computational chemists, medicinal chemists, structural biologists, biochemists, biologists and support staff, all dedicated to revolutionizing drug discovery through the development and use of breakthrough computational methods. Through significant long-term investments in basic research we have made scientific advancements across many areas of drug discovery and have contributed hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific publications, which are frequently among the most heavily cited in their fields. These advancements have been instrumental in the success of our structure-based drug discovery efforts.

We are now seeking an expert in protein structure prediction and homology modeling to join this team. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated ability to develop and validate methods for predicting either the atomic-scale changes in protein structure induced by ligand binding or the atomic-scale differences in structure between two related proteins.


  • Work as part of a collaborative team to create and validate new technologies to predict changes in protein structure induced by ligands and/or the atomic scale differences in protein structure between two proteins with similar sequences
  • Work with the drug discovery group to deploy these new technologies to active projects


  • Ph.D. in computational chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, or a related field with peer-reviewed publications in the fields of protein structure prediction and/or homology modeling
  • Experience working with and/or extending existing protein structure prediction and homology modeling packages
  • Experience with scripted or compiled programming languages
  • Excellent communication skills and a demonstrated ability to work as part of a team

Preferred Skills:

  • Object oriented software development experience following good engineering practices
  • Experience working with pharmaceutically relevant systems such as kinases, GPCRs, transferases, etc
  • Broad knowledge of computational chemistry techniques and their applications to the drug discovery process
  • Experience working with implicit solvent models or statistical potentials

Benefits include medical, dental, 401(k), flexible spending account, vacation, tuition reimbursement, and a flexible work schedule.
