Subject: 18.03.16 Postdoctoral Fellowships 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 chemistry, biology, or physics, or in a relevant area of 
computer science or applied mathematics.  
Relevant areas of experience might include the study of allosteric 
interactions or other functionally important conformational changes in 
biological molecules, structure prediction or design for proteins or 
RNA, the study of proteinprotein or proteinnucleic acid interactions,
force field improvement through detailed comparisons of simulation data
with NMR measurements or other experimental data, or development and 
implementation of new methodology (e.g., integrators, 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.
