Subject: 16.03.16 Drug Discovery Scientist, Schrodinger (NYC)

Schrödinger's mission is to revolutionize drug discovery through the use of breakthrough computational methods. We are currently looking for outstanding individuals to join our drug discovery group and contribute to our rapidly expanding portfolio of drug discovery collaborations.

Our drug discovery group of over 30 scientists includes designers, modelers, computational chemists, medicinal chemists, crystallographers, biochemists, and biologists with well over 100 years of combined drug discovery experience. The group is supported by more than 100 software developers and engineers. Three of the programs weve worked on in the past 5 years have progressed into the clinic and an additional one is expected to enter clinical trials this year.

If you are a computational chemist or modeler and have an interest in applying cutting-edge computational approaches to structure-enabled projects, we are eager to hear from you.


  • Actively participate in internal and collaborative drug discovery projects
  • Work closely with the internal software development team to improve Schrödinger's drug discovery technologies

Essential Qualifications and Experience:

  • Ph.D. in computational chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, or biochemistry
  • Experience in structure-based drug design
  • Additional experience in at least two of the following molecular modeling areas: virtual ligand screening, computationally-driven lead optimization, ligand-based drug design, molecular dynamics, homology modeling, quantum mechanics, cheminformatics, or ADMET/QSPR
  • Excellent communication skills

Desirable Skills:

  • Exposure to one or more other disciplines of relevance to drug discovery, such as synthetic organic chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, formulation, biochemistry, physical chemistry or analytical chemistry
  • Experience with programming and/or scripting languages and/or chemically aware databases
  • Experience in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry

We offer highly competitive compensation packages. Benefits include medical, dental, vision, 401(k), flexible spending account, 3+ weeks vacation, tuition reimbursement and a flexible work environment with the option to work remotely 2 days a week.

Schrödinger is an equal opportunity employer.
