Subject: 17.03.08 Senior Scientist, Empirical Scoring Functions - Schrodinger, NYC

Schrodinger, a technology leader specializing in software solutions for life science research and development, is seeking a computational scientist with outstanding skills in empirical scoring function development and validation. The ideal candidate is a scientist experienced in the application, development, and refinement of methods to rapidly predict protein-ligand complex geometries and affinities from physical principles. The candidate should have demonstrated ability to design, implement, and validate novel, broadly applicable scoring functions. The candidate should also be highly organized, work well in a collaborative environment, and be familiar with and eager to adopt good software engineering practices. Schrodinger has a strong commitment to engineering as well as science and uses continuous integration, extensive testing, and code review as part of our process.

Required qualifications include:

  • Ph.D. in computational chemistry, chemical physics, or related fields
  • Unix/Linux, Fortran/C/C++, and Python experience
  • Peer-reviewed publications in statistical mechanics, computational chemistry, and/or chemical physics
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal

Desirable qualifications include:

  • Expertise wielding empirical scoring functions for predicting protein-ligand complex geometries and binding affinities
  • Expertise in the impact of solvation on protein-ligand binding
  • Experience with protein-ligand docking
  • Experience applying free energy-perturbation methods
  • Experience with protein-protein docking
