Subject: 22.11.02 Computational Chemistry and Biology Opportunities at D. E. Shaw Research
D. E. Shaw Research is seeking computational chemists and biologists, as 
well as other computational scientists with a track record of achievement, 
to join our New Yorkbased team.  This is a unique opportunity to develop 
and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary 

Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of molecular 
dynamics, machine learning, or other computational methods to drug discovery,
investigation of conformational changes relevant to the function of 
therapeutically relevant biomolecules, structural modeling of 
proteinprotein or protein-nucleic acid complexes involved in signal 
transduction or other cellular processes, or the study of fundamental 
biophysical problems, such as protein and RNA folding.  Specific knowledge 
of any of these areas is less critical, however, than 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.  We also provide 
generous relocation and immigration assistance to new hires.  In addition, 
we strive to support the personal and professional needs of our team 
members by offering generous benefits, opportunities for community 
engagement, and a variety of learning and development programs.

D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES) is a New York-based drug discovery and 
computational biochemistry research company developing and using advanced 
computational technologies to understand the behavior of biologically and 
pharmaceutically significant molecules at an atomic level of detail, and to 
design precisely targeted, highly selective drugs for the treatment of various 
diseases.  Among our core technologies is a proprietary special-purpose 
supercomputer called ANTON which we designed and constructed to perform 
molecular dynamics simulations more than 100 times faster than the world's 
fastest general-purpose supercomputers.  DESRES develops and refines advanced 
biomolecular modeling methods, software, and machine learning techniques on ANTON, 
as well as on general-purpose supercomputers, in order to pursue both internal 
and collaborative drug discovery programs.

D. E. Shaw Research is an equal opportunity employer, dedicated to the goal 
of building a diverse workforce. We embrace diversity along all dimensions, 
and respect and value the unique qualities, perspectives, and identities of 
every person in our group. We welcome inquiries from all exceptionally 
well-qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, nationality, national 
or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, caste, 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 we operate. 

The expected annual base salary for this position is $300,000 - $450,000.  
Our compensation package also includes variable compensation in the form of 
sign-on and year-end bonuses, and generous benefits.  The applicable annual 
base salary paid to a successful applicant will be determined based on 
multiple factors including the nature and extent of prior experience and 
educational background.
