Subject: 23.05.18 Software Developers for Drug Discovery
Cheminformatics software developers are sought to join a New York-based drug discovery and computational biochemistry research company.  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 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 supercomputers. 

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