Subject: 22.11.16 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 (DESRES) develops and uses 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. Successful hires will be 
responsible for developing our tools and methodologies for virtual 
screening and hit-finding drug discovery, leveraging our custom 

We take great pride in the caliber of our team, 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.
