Subject: 21.02.27 Computational Chemist: Modeling and Drug Design, New Equilibrium Biosciences, Boston, MA, USA
New Equilibrium Biosciences discovers drugs that target intrinsically disordered proteins through its integrated computational-experimental platform, with the mission of creating transformative medicines for patients with cancers and neurodegenerative disorders. We are seeking a PhD-level scientist with a background in computational chemistry or biology to join our growing team starting in March 2021. You should have experience in molecular dynamics simulations of proteins and computer-aided drug design, and you should be passionate about using and building novel, interdisciplinary technologies to facilitate drug discovery for currently undrugged targets. We look forward to hearing from you! Required Qualifications: - Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry, Computational Biology, or a related field - Experience with: -- Running and analyzing enhanced sampling molecular dynamics simulations -- Structure-based drug design, and -- Intrinsically Disordered Proteins - Positive attitude and passion for New Equilibriums goals - Out-of-box thinker committed to rigorous scientific work Desired Qualifications (any combination of these): - Postdoc/Industry experience related to Computational Chemistry, Computational Biology, Drug Discovery, Biophysics, or a related field - Experience with: -- Developing algorithms related to molecular dynamics simulations, in silico screening, or structure-based drug design -- Fragment-based drug discovery -- Free Energy Perturbation -- Force field parameterization -- AI-powered drug discovery -- Developing machine learning algorithms -- Building and configuring cloud-based and/or local HPC clusters - Strong theoretical background in statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, and/or machine learning - Interest in application-specific hardware and quantum computing - Excellent oral and written communication skills Responsibilities: - Initiate, monitor, and analyze protein simulations - Model the conformational ensemble of intrinsically disordered proteins - Develop new methodologies for modeling intrinsically disordered proteins and their interactions with ligands - Work closely with experimentalists and medicinal chemists to design and test drug molecules - Prepare figures/slides/documents for external presentations - Help shape the culture of New Equilibrium Biosciences
