Subject: 17.11.01 Senior Scientific Editor at D. E. Shaw Research
Individual with extraordinary communication skills sought for position as a 
Senior Scientific Editor at a New York City-based scientific research group 
that aims to make groundbreaking contributions within the fields of biology,
chemistry, and drug discovery.

This hire will work closely with a team of world-class scientists and 
engineers on the preparation and writing of scientific manuscripts, 
primarily in the area of computational chemistry, structural biology, 
software, and hardware for biomolecular simulations.  Responsibilities will 
include coordinating (and contributing to) the writing and editing of 
manuscripts, corresponding with journals, and working with the groups 
senior members to communicate both particular research results and the labs
long-term scientific mission.  This is a high-visibility role that affords 
the opportunity to help shape our high-impact papers.

Ideal candidates should have an exceptional record of academic 
accomplishments, a Ph.D. in chemistry, biology, physics, applied math, 
computer science or a similar field, and experience editing and shaping 
scientific publications.  They should also be outstanding critical 
thinkers with meticulous attention to detail and strong project 
management skills.  Familiarity with computation and some knowledge of 
molecular biophysics would be an advantage.

We offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional

D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research group that is pursuing an 
ambitious, long-term strategy aimed at fundamentally transforming the 
process of drug discovery.  We have developed a special-purpose 
supercomputer capable of executing molecular dynamics (MD) simulations 
orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible.  Our current 
projects include investigations of proteins and other biomedically relevant
macromolecules as well as the development of computational chemistry 
methods to enable more accurate and effective MD simulations.

D. E. Shaw Research is committed to building a diverse team.  We offer an 
intellectually rigorous and stimulating work environment that is also 
supportive, flexible, and welcoming.  We do not discriminate in employment
