Subject: 23.05.18 Scientific Software Developers for Drug Discovery
Scientific 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 large-scale scientific workflows to support our drug discovery 
research efforts.  

Particularly relevant areas of expertise will include large-scale data analysis, tool integration, workflow engineering/development, high performance data-parallel 
computing, systems software, machine learning, and Python programming, among other things, but specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical than intellectual
curiosity, versatility, and a track record of achievement.  Having a scientific background is preferred, but not required.  

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.
