Subject: 17.03.08 Postdoctoral Fellowships in Computational Chemistry, Biology, and Physics at D. E. Shaw Research
D. E. Shaw Research is seeking postdoctoral fellows of exceptional 
ability to join our New Yorkbased team.  This is a unique opportunity 
to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, 
interdisciplinary environment.  Candidates should have expertise in 
computational, theoretical, or quantum chemistry, computational 
biophysics, structural biology, drug discovery, theoretical chemical 
physics, applied mathematics, or in a relevant area of computer science. 

Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of 
molecular dynamics or other computational methods to drug discovery, 
investigation of allosteric interactions or other functionally 
important conformational changes in biological molecules, structure 
prediction or design for proteins or RNA, study of protein-protein or 
protein-nucleic acid interactions, force field improvement through 
detailed comparisons of simulation data with NMR measurements or other 
experimental data, development and implementation of new methodology, 
such as integrators or efficient approximations of long-range forces, 
methods for enhanced sampling or free-energy calculations, or tools 
to efficiently analyze large simulation datasets.  Specific knowledge 
of any of these areas is less critical, however, than outstanding 
intellectual ability, unusually strong research skills, and a history 
of innovation and accomplishment. We are committed to fostering a 
stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work environment, and we offer 
above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional ability.

D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research group that is pursuing 
an ambitious, long-term strategy aimed at fundamentally transforming 
the process of drug discovery.  We have developed a special-purpose 
supercomputer capable of executing molecular dynamics (MD) simulations 
orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible.  Our current 
projects include investigations of proteins and other biomedically 
relevant macromolecules as well as the development of computational 
chemistry methods to enable more accurate and effective MD simulations.

D. E. Shaw Research does not discriminate in employment matters on the 
basis of race, color, religion, gender, pregnancy, national origin, 
age, military service eligibility, veteran status, sexual orientation, 
marital status, disability, or any other protected class.
