Subject: 23.05.08 Computational Drug Discovery Opportunities at D. E. Shaw Research
D. E. Shaw Research is seeking scientists with experience in computational drug discovery or related areas to join our New York-based team.  This is a unique opportunity to develop and work 
with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.

Areas of expertise relevant to our molecular dynamicsbased drug discovery efforts include molecular modeling, machine learning, fragmentbased drug design, cheminformatics, and medicinal 
chemistry.  An ability to leverage experimental data to inform computational approaches would be a plus, as would knowledge of structural biology.  Specific knowledge of any of these areas 
is less critical, however, than strong research skills, and a record of impact in drug discovery.

A successful hire will directly contribute to projects within our expanding portfolio of drug discovery programs, which we pursue both independently and in collaboration with leaders in 
academia and industry.

D. E. Shaw Research 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. 

We are looking to add innovative contributors who share our commitment to fostering a stimulating, positive, and collaborative work environment.
