Subject: 22.11.02 Drug Discovery Fellow Opportunities at D. E. Shaw Research
D. E. Shaw Research is seeking Ph.D.level scientists 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 
biophysics or chemistry, structural biology, or drug discovery.  

Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of molecular dynamics or 
machine learning to drug discovery, computer-aided drug design, molecular modeling, 
cheminformatics, fragment-based approaches, medicinal chemistry, biochemical and 
biophysical assay development, or target analysis and selection.  Specific knowledge 
of any of these areas is less critical, however, than strong research skills, and a 
history of innovation and accomplishment. Successful candidates will directly further 
the groups drug discovery aims.  This is anticipated to be a three year position.

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 develops and uses advanced computational technologies to understand 
the behavior of biologically and pharmaceutically significant molecules at an atomic l
evel 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,
