Subject: 21.08.23 Machine Learning Engineers
Machine learning engineers with impressive records of academic and 
professional achievements sought to join our interdisciplinary team in 
New York City.

This is a unique opportunity to collaborate with our chemists, 
biologists, and computer scientists to expand the groups efforts 
applying machine learning to drug discovery, biomolecular simulation, 
and biophysics.  Ideal candidates will have demonstrated expertise in 
developing deep learning techniques, as well as strong Python 
programming skills.  Relevant areas of experience might include 
molecular dynamics, structural biology, medicinal chemistry, 
cheminformatics, and/or quantum chemistry, but specific knowledge of 
any of these areas is less critical than intellectual curiosity, 
versatility, and a track record of achievement and innovation in the 
field of machine learning.

D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research group focusing 
primarily on molecular simulations of proteins and other biological 
macromolecules with the long-term goal of transforming the process of 
drug discovery.  We have developed multiple generations of a 
special-purpose supercomputer, ANTON, capable of executing molecular 
dynamics simulations orders of magnitude faster than was previously 
possible, as well as software tools aimed at achieving major 
scientific advances in the fields of biochemistry and molecular 
biology.  Machine learning techniques are a rapidly-growing aspect 
of our research efforts.  For example, we have developed and published 
neural networks that improve the accuracy of quantum chemistry models, 
and have trained deep learning models to generate optimized molecules 
for drug discovery.

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
