Subject: 19.09.23 Postdoctoral Fellowships in Computational Chemistry, Biology, and Physics
D. E. Shaw Research is seeking postdoctoral fellows of exceptional 
ability to join our New Yorkbased team.  This is a unique opportunity 
to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, 
interdisciplinary environment.  Candidates should have expertise in 
computational, theoretical, or quantum chemistry, computational 
biophysics, structural biology, drug discovery, theoretical chemical 
physics, applied mathematics, or in a relevant area of 
computer science.

Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of 
molecular dynamics or other computational methods to drug discovery, 
investigation of allosteric interactions or other functionally 
important conformational changes in biological molecules, 
structure prediction or design for proteins or RNA, study of 
protein-protein or protein-nucleic acid interactions, force field 
improvement through detailed comparisons of simulation data with 
NMR measurements or other experimental data, development and 
implementation of new methodology, such as integrators or efficient 
approximations of long-range forces, methods for enhanced sampling 
or free-energy calculations, or tools to efficiently analyze large 
simulation datasets.  Specific knowledge of any of these areas is 
less critical, however, than outstanding intellectual ability, 
unusually strong research skills, and a history of innovation and 
accomplishment. 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 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, ANTON, 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 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.
