Subject: 21.03.18 Software Developers for Drug Discovery
Cheminformatics software developers are sought to join an ambitious, 
well-funded interdisciplinary research group based in New York City.  
Successful candidates will work closely with our world-class team of 
chemists, biologists, and computer scientists on developing software 
that is critical to our drug discovery efforts.  

Ideal candidates will have extensive experience with cheminformatics 
software packages; strong Python and C/C++ programming skills; 
experience with development for cluster architectures; and familiarity 
with Linux/UNIX operating systems.  Relevant areas of expertise include 
virtual screening and docking, computer-aided small molecule design, 
molecular modeling, and engineering of large-scale chemical databases, 
but specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical than 
intellectual curiosity, versatility, and a track record of achievement.

D. E. Shaw Research is pursuing a long-term strategy aimed at 
fundamentally transforming the process of drug discovery.  
Our group has developed multiple generations of a special-purpose 
supercomputer, ANTON, capable of simulating biomolecular phenomena 
orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible, and we are 
currently working on a number of drug discovery programs focusing on 
drug targets that span a range of therapeutic areas.  Successful hires 
will be responsible for developing our tools and methodologies for 
virtual screening and hit-finding drug discovery, leveraging our 
custom supercomputers. 

We take great pride in the caliber of our team, and we offer 
above-market compensation.  This full-time role also offers full 
benefits, generous relocation assistance, and a collegial working
