Subject: 17.09.12 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 is committed to building a diverse team.  We offer an 
intellectually rigorous and stimulating work environment that is also 
supportive, flexible, and welcoming.  We do not discriminate in employment
matters on the basis of race, color, gender, age, religion, national 
origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, pregnancy, marital
status, military service eligibility, veteran status, or any other category
protected by law.
